The new CBS comedy Life In Pieces focuses on the Short family. James Brolin and Dianne Wiest portray John and Joan Short, parents of three adult children including their middle child, the single one who lives at home with them, Matt (Thomas Sadoski). When Matt goes out on a successful date with his co-worker Colleen (Angelique Cabral), she brings him home for a nightcap…and a surprise. Sitting on her couch is Chad, her ex-fiance who still lives in her apartment and doesn’t believe the engagement is really off.
Chad is portrayed by funnyman Jordan Peele, the Peele of the sketch comedy duo Key & Peele. When their Comedy Central show ended earlier this year, to their fans’ great dismay, Peele tweeted:
Thank you guys so much. You gave us more with your laughter and love than we could ever pay back. We’ll try though. pic.twitter.com/HAC8kkicLH

Looks like Peele has found a way to quickly pay back his fans with a hilarious performance in Life in Pieces, which will premiere on Monday, September 21 at 8:30pm. P.S. In November, the show will move to Thursdays (8:30, CBS).
