His brother Dean explains how such a thing would seem forced, and bluntly recaps his entire story to prove his point — perfectly synopsizing the show for new viewers. If you're one such viewer just tuning in, the premise of the real The Grinder — the freshman half-hour comedy airing Tuesdays on Fox — or at least the arching joke the network pitched in the lead up to last fall's premiere, is that actor Dean Sanderson Jr. (Rob Lowe) has left his hit television show "The Grinder" in Los Angeles, and returned to his hometown of Boise, Idaho, where he now lives and works with his brother Stew, an actual lawyer played by Fred Savage, at the family's law firm.
