Fred Savage stars as Mitch Crumb in ABC's Crumbs with Jane Curtin and Eddie McClintock. Fred is looking great, and brings a sweet innocence to his character (whose family doesn't know he's gay... he hides issues of Playbill inside Playboy!). Eddie plays his brother Jody, the chef at their family restaurant.
This week's episode finds Mitch falling for his mother's handsome co-worker (Rider Strong, from Boy Meets World) at the pioneer farm/museum. Mitch's new beau won't date him unless he's out to his family, though -- and the episode ends with a goodbye.
The Hunk du Jour oddsmakers aren't ready to make a prediction on this show's fate -- it's cute and sweet, some appropriate sitcom fare. Check it out next on Thursday 2/16 -- who knows if this is a permanent timeslot shift... hopefully ABC doesn't kill it by hiding it in a different place each week.
