Anthony Anderson was bent on bringing funny back this TV season. A scene-stealer extraordinaire, Anderson -- big of voice, size and brash comic bravado -- had scored steady work for more than a decade in films such as "Kangaroo Jack," "Barbershop," "Me, Myself & Irene," "Scary Movie 3" and numerous other films and TV series. Lately, he has largely put the jokes aside for more serious turns, winning raves for supporting roles in "The Shield" and "Hustle & Flow."

Actor and comedian Anthony Anderson understands that sticking to an exercise regimen and improving eating habits takes more than a disquieting conversation with a physician to sustain motivation. I'm married to a family physician, and she laments how many patients ignore the "if you don't change you're going to die" warning. But Anthony changed, and it's because he learned that feeling a sense of duty to his family and becoming passionate about healthful living are the secrets to ditching years of bad habits, losing weight, decreasing his risk of heart attack and getting his Type 2 diabetes under control.

There's nothing like a sitcom concept whose time has come, which is why television households are being overrun this season with boomerang kids. But for Anthony Anderson, the idea of grown offspring returning home to live with mom and pop was torn from the pages of his diary, not a script treatment.
