Crowded (10 p.m., NBC) – Who debuts a new sitcom at 10 p.m.? NBC, when they want “The Voice” lead-in numbers. In this new James Burrows series (it moves to Sundays at 9:30 p.m. on March 20), a couple (Patrick Warburton and Carrie Preston) are just learning to enjoy the freedom of an empty nest when their two adult daughters (Miranda Cosgrove and Mia Serafino) move back home. Then the husband’s parents (Stacy Keach and Carlease Burke) scratch their plans to move to Florida – and they must live very close by because they drop in constantly. It’s pretty corny most of the time and not my cup of tea, but I will admit that Patrick Warburton still makes me laugh; he gets all the decent lines and delivers them perfectly. We can’t quit you, Puddy.
