According to Jim - Season 6
Jim is a happy-go-lucky suburban father. Much like his real-life counterpart, Jim's character is a fan of blues music, as well as the Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bulls and Chicago Blackhawks. Together with his wife Cheryl, they have three children, daughters Ruby and Gracie and son Kyle. In the seventh season they become parents of twin boys Gordon and Jonathan.
The show first aired following the surprise hit comedy My Wife and Kids and quickly developed an audience of its own. For its second season ABC placed it on its revitalized Tuesday line-up, which also included John Ritter's 8 Simple Rules, Bonnie Hunt's Life with Bonnie and Sara Rue's Less Than Perfect. Week by week, the show attracted more and more viewers, becoming ABC's second most watched sitcom. The show performed so well that the network made a risky move: putting Jim opposite the NBC juggernaut Frasier. Although Jim did not beat the competition, it performed well enough to secure itself that spot on the 2003 fall schedule.
On May 15, 2007, ABC announced that According to Jim would not be renewed for another season. ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson said, "We are talking to the studio to see if there's something financially, a deal that would make sense for us." But on June 27, 2007, ABC renewed the show for a seventh season with 18 episodes.
According to Jim returned to ABC's schedule on Tuesday, January 1, 2008, with two episodes at 9 pm and 9:30 pm. After that, the series moved to its regular time slot at 8 pm. Despite the writer's strike, ABC announced that the show would produce all 18 episodes ordered for this season.
On February 27, 2008, it was reported that ABC was close to renewing According to Jim for an eighth season. On May 13, 2008, ABC officially renewed the series and Season 8 began airing on December 2, 2008. Kimberly Williams-Paisley left the show's regular cast at the beginning of Season 8 and was not in the Season 8 opening credits, to devote her time to motherhood. She made a guest appearance only in the season finale.
For most of the series, Kimberly Williams-Paisley was the best nemesis for the lead character Jim as his sister-in-law, Dana. Unfortunately for fans, however, after the series was renewed for an eighth season, the actress decided not to continue on as a lead character and was dropped back to a special guest. Paisley said she left the show to focus on her own family with her husband, country singer Brad Paisley.
For the first time, early in season five, one principal character had finally gotten a surname. Dana (Kimberly Williams) married Dr. Ryan Gibson (Mitch Rouse), and became Dana Gibson. The rest of the principal characters still had no surname.
In season six, episode thirteen, "The At-Bat", the "grown up Kyle" was played by Jim Belushi's real-life son Robert. Also the "mean girl on the bike" at the game, was his real-life daughter, Jamison. Both appeared in the show before.
In one episode Cheryl asked Kyle how he sees his father, he imagines Jim as a superhero with a cape, and then she asks how he really thinks of Jim, he imagines Jim as a superhero with a cane. It's nice to see how Kyle really likes his dad as he is.
There was this episode, Slumber Party when Jim is obliged to host Ruby's birthday. Since Cheryl gets sick, it saddens both Ruby and Jim because Jim proves to be a terrible parent. However, near the end of this episode, Jim admits that real fun actually begins when you were born. Things improve quickly. This was a nice Heartwarming moment.
In The At Bat, Jim has a hard day because he fails to give Kyle proper advice and sees what he will become in the future until he realizes that Kyle actually played bad because he did not use his left hand. After this, all turns better.
Cheryl's Birthday was awful, only because Jim planned her a nice birthday surprise, which is unusual for both of them.
The episode in which Jim searches for a new best friend after Andy played with Ryan. Their reconciliation was great.
In one episode, Jim gets sad because Kyle identifies more with Andy and shares a common ground with him in science fiction. It turns out that even if Jim does not like it, it does not mean he has no common ground with his son and finally teaches him how to play harmonica.
Every time Dana and Jim get along.
The season 6 finale deals with Jim's birthday and the fact he hates it, because of an accident that happened while he was 13. Cheryl shows him a video which features a montage with all his pictures with family and friends. Jim is for once very touched and just thanks everybody.
After Larry left According to Jim in 2009, he went on to do some pretty big stuff. He joined the cast of Weeds for a season, played Paul in episode of The Goldbergs, played a clown in Fuller House in 2018, and even made an appearance in HBO's Gen Z hit Euphoria (you may remember him playing Officer Wilson). His most recent role is Commandant of the Coast Guard in Netflix's comedy Space Force.
