SUMMARY: Emmy-nominated “According to Jim” stars comedian, author and movie star Jim Belushi as a man’s man, running his construction company while testing his wife Cheryl’s (Courtney Thorne-Smith) patience with his macho antics. They may be opposites, but they still attract. With their three precocious kids, Cheryl’s complaining sister, and Jim’s trouble-making friend, life is in constant turmoil. But Jim’s charm, sense of humor and fast-thinking always gets him out of trouble.

STARS: Jim Belushi  (Jim), Courtney Thorne-Smith (Cheryl), Kimberly Williams (Dana), Larry Joe Campbell (Andy), Taylor Atelian (Rudy), Billi Bruno (Gracie)

Cheryl: (on Jim’s behavior) He’s brilliant. He’s pretending to be a moron to cover up being a jackass.

Cheryl: Jim, are you listening to yourself?
Jim: Yes, I am, Cheryl. I *am* a genius. I can talk and listen to myself at the same time!

Cheryl: Jim, there’s a lot of culture in this city. We should take advantage of it.
Jim: What? I take you to the zoo.
