THE NEW FALL SEASON: "Allen Gregory"

8:30 tonight, Fox

It’s actually Allen Gregory De Longpre, a 7-year-old boy with the sophistication of an adult -- an adult you’d find pretentious and obnoxious. Think “Family Guy’s” Stewie, older, without the British accent, and the disarming quality of being a baby no one can understand.

Allen Gregory lives with his two dads, the doting Richard (French Stewart) and the disrespected Jeremy (Nat Faxon). He also has an adopted Cambodian sister Julie (Joy Osmanksi), who was bought online. Money woes force the boy into public school with kids his own age. On the first day, he comes to the school cafeteria with a Bento Box; inside is sushi and chilled pinot grigio.
