Fall TV

Can't wait to watch Fox's new fall comedy "Ben and Kate"? You're in luck: Fox has posted the full "Ben and Kate" series premiere online, and you can check it out right here on Yahoo! TV, almost a full month before it airs.

"Ben and Kate" stars Dakota Johnson ("21 Jump Street") as Kate, a young single mom who's doing her best to raise her daughter Maddie (Maggie Elizabeth Jones) while also keeping an eye on her always-scheming older brother, Ben (Nat Faxon). Ben's the free-wheeling loose cannon of the family, but when he sees the rut Kate's gotten herself into, he offers to move in and help watch Maddie, allowing Kate to let her hair down and rediscover her passion for life.

If Johnson looks familiar, there's a good reason for that: She's the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. "Kate's" overgrown-kid premise might be a little well-worn, but Johnson really shines here. She makes Kate's frazzled nature somehow endearing, she has great chemistry with Faxon and Jones, and she's got the natural comic timing of a sitcom veteran at just 22 years old. (Plus, if you close your eyes, she sounds just like her mom, doesn't she?)

"Ben and Kate" premieres Tuesday, 9/25 at 8:30 PM on Fox.

You can also watch the entire series premiere of Fox's other new comedy, "The Mindy Project," here too.
