"THE WAR AT HOME" IS FOUGHT ON TWO FRONTS SUNDAY, APRIL 16, ON FOX Two All-New Episodes to Air
Brenda Vaccaro and Jerry Adler Make Guest Appearances
Two all-new episodes of THE WAR AT HOME will air Sunday, April 16 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT & 9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. In the 9:30 PM episode, "The West Palm Beach Story," Brenda Vaccaro and Jerry Adler ("The Sopranos") guest-star as Dave's parents.
In the first episode, "Snow Job" (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), when Dave and Vicky discover their neighbors have broken up, they start to question their own relationship, which is put to the test when Hillary sprains her ankle on a skiing trip that Vicky approved and lied to Dave about. At the hospital they learn that Hillary lied to both of them, but their argument turns into all-out war when Dave can't get past Vicky's deception. Meanwhile, Larry awaits a phone call from a girl, and Mike takes advantage of the situation to get an older woman.
In "The West Palm Beach Story" (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT), Dave takes the family on the cheapest vacation possible - a trip to visit his parents (Vaccaro and Adler) in Florida. The only one excited about going is Larry, who has begun a weight-loss program so he'll look good in his Speedo. Things go from bad to worse when their ride to the airport goes away, Hillary's new body piercing is discovered by security in front of a furious Vicky, and Dave is singled out for a security screening. When they finally get to the condo, Dave is unceasingly belittled by his dad and wants to fly home as soon as possible.
