In The Kids Are Alright episode “The Love List,” after seeing how loving Pat’s friend’s parents are, the Cleary boys beg Peggy (Mary McCormack) to tell them she loves them. Playing on their insecurities, Peggy posts a ranked list of their names on the fridge in the hopes that it will bring out their competitive instincts, and someone will divulge who broke the dining room light fixture. Meanwhile, patriarch Mike (Michael Cudlitz) brings home his co-worker Grover disguised as an amateur detective to help compel a confession out of the guilty Cleary child.
“Detective” Grover is portrayed by Ken Jeong. Jeong, a former medical doctor turned comedian, is known for his roles on Dr. Ken (Ken), Community (Ben), and as Mr. Chow in The Hangover movies. (SEE LINK ABOVE.) Jeong is currently starring in the new game show called The Masked Singer — he’s a panelist. Jeong has to guess which celebrity is singing in disguise on stage. The Kids Are Alright airs Tuesdays at 8:30 pm on ABC, right after The Conners and right before black-ish.
