Oliver BeeneOliver Beene is a new half-hour comedy show that takes you back to 1962. Grant Rosenmeyer plays 11 year-old Oliver Beene, who comes from an eccentric family and like most kids wishes his family was "normal." The sitcom follows Oliver Beene through the ins and outs of growing-up during the 1960s and uses flashbacks and narrating to tell his story. Looks like this story could be kinda like The Wonder Years, which starred Fred Savage (aka Moley, Moley, Moley from Austin Powers in Goldmember.) Oliver Beene airs Sunday night at 7:30 PM ET/PT on Fox.
