Fox just gave the low-rated comedy Til Death a stay of execution, but the sitcom starring Brad Garrett will undergo some major changes when it returns for its third season this fall. A source close to the show confirms to EW.com that Fox has apparently abandoned Death’s original premise — newlyweds’ move in next door to a grumpy, long-married couple — by dropping the young characters of Jeff and Steph Woodcock (Kat Foster and Eddie Kaye Thomas) and making way for a new story line involving Kenny Westchester (Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s JB Smoove). Westchester was introduced earlier this year as a “Little Brother” to Eddie (Garrett) in the Big Brothers charity organization, despite the fact that Kenny is in his late 30s.
