The Monday night comedy featured Bobby Moynihan, formerly of Saturday Night Live, as an inventor named Alex Riley during three stages of his life. Moynihan played the middle-aged Alex; Jack Dylan Grazer played the teenaged Alex while TV veteran John Larroquette played the senior Alex.

The show was a moderate success with the critics, scoring a 65 out of a possible 100 at RottenTomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews.

“The pilot is charming and funny. Just try to ignore that Moynihan is never going to turn into Larroquette,” wrote Scott D. Pierce of the Salt Lake City Tribune.

But the ratings declined with each episode and the now series finale generated fewer than four million viewers.

CBS will put a Big Bang Theory repeat this Monday in the show’s 8:30 p.m. slot while Matt LeBlanc’s Man With a Plan will take over on November 13.
