Matthew Perry is back on primetime TV – and he’s getting a little help from some feline friends.

The actor stars as a sportscaster grieving the death of his wife on the new NBC series Go On, and in Tuesday’s episode, the process involves dealing with a handful of cuddly cats.

Though judging by the actor’s expression, he’s none to keen about having such a large group at home with him – perhaps what leads him to seemingly give them away later on.

Whether the animals provide any relief for the star’s character remains to be seen, but fans looking to find out can tune in to Go On, Tuesday on NBC at 9 p.m.
