Season 1

Worst Week is an American television sitcom developed by Matt Tarses and based on the British show The Worst Week of My Life created by Mark Bussell and Justin Sbresni about Sam Briggs, who tends to attract trouble. His luck is worse than that of anyone else, and bad things happen to him in rapid succession.

The series aired in the USA on CBS from 22 September, 2008 to 6 June, 2009. There are 16 half-hour episodes in one season.

Worst Week premiered in South Africa on SABC3 on Friday 8 July 2011, at 21h00. New episodes broadcast weekly.

Synopsis

Worst Week is a comedy about Sam Briggs, an entertainment magazine editor who will do anything to please his girlfriend's parents... but instead becomes a one-man wrecking crew whenever he's around them.

Sam (Kyle Bornheimer) and his girlfriend, Melanie Clayton (Erinn Hayes), have only one hurdle left to clear as they start their life together: breaking the news to Mel's conservative parents that they have a wedding in the works and a baby on the way.

Dick (Kurtwood Smith), a stern Judge, and his wife Angela (Nancy Lenehan), are protective of their daughter, and are really trying to let go of the anger they feel toward Sam... after all, disaster follows whenever he visits their house.

But despite his best efforts, every time Sam takes one positive step forward in winning over his future in-laws, he inevitably takes two crushing steps back.

But with support and love from Melanie who stands up for him despite his knack for making himself look bad, Sam will hopefully charm his way into her family.
