ben and kateBen and Kate: Scoop on Geoff Stults’ role




Here’s some scoop on Ben and Kate from Kristin Dos Santos’ Spoiler Chat Daily for Friday 9/28/12.




The Ben and Kate premiere was hilarious! Is it true that the very hot Geoff Stults will soon be guest starring?

It is indeed! The Finder alum is joining Fox’s promising new comedy in a recurring role as a single dad who becomes a love interest for single-mom Kate. But not everybody will be thrilled for the new couple, according to Nat Faxon, who plays Kate’s bro, Ben. “He’s a protective older brother,” Faxon explains. “Ben wants what any brother would, which is to make sure that his sister is in good hands and that the guy’s not gonna screw her over. [So] he’s making sure the guy checks out. I appreciate that because it feels very true, very real.” Look for Stults to make his first appearance in Ben and Kate‘s Halloween episode, which airs Oct. 30.



Ben and Kate Ratings Note:


I’m not so sure how many of you even know about Ben and Kate, it was first titled Ned Fox is My Nanny. The show is about a brother and sister who have nothing in common, that decide to live together in a mutually beneficial move.  Kate’s single and has a baby and needs help, while Ben is a dreamer and Kate thinks she can get his live back into order. But what about the ratings!?


Right, well Ben and Kate performed the weakest in FOX’s new Comedy Tuesday line-up. That’s not good, the runt of the litter always goes first. 4.21 million people watched the Ben and Kate series Premiere. New Girl did 5.38 million viewers, and The Mindy Project 4.67 million viewers. So, Ben and Kate need to step it by way of mouth or it could end up on the chopping block.


Ben and Kate returns next week with episode 1×02 ‘Bad Cop/Bad Cop.’ No, that’s not a typo. It airs Tuesday, October 2, 2012 at 8:30pm on FOX.
