Michael J. Fox makes TV comeback with own show

Michael J. Fox’s return to television is a little awkward, but could have a good run.

After Parkinson’s disease forced him into early retirement, a beloved TV personality (Fox) returns to the air in this autobiographical comedy.

This is “The Michael J. Fox Story.” The first episode is a little rough around the edges. And it takes a while to get used to Fox and others joking about his disease. But if there’s one undeniable rule of television, it’s this: Never, ever count out Michael J. Fox.

What: “The Michael J. Fox Show”

When: 9 p.m. Sept. 26, KSNV-TV, Channel 3; moves to 9:30 p.m. Oct. 3

Who’s in it: Michael J. Fox, Wendell Pierce, Betsy Brandt
