My Own Worst Enemy: Watch the Last Episode of the Christian Slater TV Show

22 December 2008 5:23 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

NBC has certainly had some problems attracting viewers. One of their biggest trouble spots has been Monday nights at 10pm. Great shows like Journeyman, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, and The Black Donnellys have all tried and failed. My Own Worst Enemy hasn't done any better.

My Own Worst Enemy centers around Henry Spivey (Christian Slater), an everyday businessman with a wife (Madchen Amick) and two kids (Taylor Lautner, and Bella Thorne). Unbeknown to even himself, Henry has another identity as an operative and trained killer named Edward Albright.

In this second persona, he works for a secret spy organization under the supervision of Mavis Heller (Alfre Woodard). He's frequently partnered with Tom Grady/Raymond Carter (Mike O'Malley). Other performers include Omid Abtahi, Saffron Burrows, James Cromwell, Sarai Givaty, Mark Ivanir, Mindy Sterling, Missy Yager, Eugenia Yuan, and Louis Giambalvo.

The show debuted on October 13, 2008 on NBC and attracted a »
