The cast of "Breaking In" on Fox

Thanks to the Official FOX VIP program, I was treated to yet another preview of “BREAKING IN” scheduled to air on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 at 9:30/8:30 ET/CT after American Idol. Possible minor spoilers are ahead.

Last week we were introduced to Oz (Christian Slater) and his crew from Contra Security: Cameron (Bret Harrison), a young college student caught hacking, who was given the choice of working for Contra Security or going to jail; Josh (Trevor Moore), the “intel” guy, who used to be the golden boy and is jealous of that status now going to Cameron; Melanie (Odette Yustman), the safe cracker, a wild child who has become the objection of Cameron’s affection; and Cash (Alphonso McAuley) who was busted stalking William Shatner as a trekkie and also given a job offer by Oz. Contra Security is the firm you hire to test how well your security system is NOT functioning.

This week, Contra Security is hired by an “old” woman to break into her safe. As with each episode, nothing is as straightforward as it seems and hilarity ensues.

Alyssa Milano (Romantically Challenged, Charmed) guest stars in this week’s episode as Amy, a dentist who Cameron meets at a restaurant. Amy has a secret but the all-knowing, all-seeing Oz is always one step ahead of everybody else.

According to “TV By The Numbers,” the debut of BREAKING IN on April 6, 2011 scored a 3.5 adults 18-49 rating and 9.9 million viewers. It was highest comedy retention after American Idol in more than 4 years, but premieres typically have higher ratings. This week’s episode will be more telling in how well the show will do.

The show is quick-paced and highly entertaining. I encourage you to give it a try. Join us on Twitter during the show for a tweet-up using the hashtag #BreakingIn.
