8:00 PM      THE ABC BIG PICTURE SHOW Phantom

The Object of My Affection is the story of a social worker, Nina (Jennifer Aniston), and a first-grade teacher, George (Paul Rudd). She's engaged to a public defender, Vince (John Pankow), while George lives with a literary critic, Robert (Daly). Nina breaks the news to George that Robert is going to break up with him. Hurt and disappointed, George moves into Nina's Brooklyn apartment, where the two plan to live as best friends. When Nina becomes pregnant by Vince, however — he's overbearing and insufferable — she turns to George to be her coach and the baby's surrogate father. The arrangement draws them closer together and love blooms - but is it the real thing?
