During a taping of one episode, Christina Applegate was surprisingly reunited on-set with one of her Married with Children (1987) co-stars. As part of her script in this episode, she rings the doorbell. But to her surprise, Ed O'Neill answered the door and said, "Where have you been, young lady?" Applegate responded with a dropped jaw, tears of joy, and a big hug. See more »

Jesse Warner (Christina Applegate) is a single mom to Little John in Buffalo. She lives at home with her father (George Dzundza) and two brothers, one voluntarily silent. Diego (Bruno Campos) is the new neighbor from Chile and her new love interest. She works at her traditional father's bar with girlfriends Carrie (Jennifer Milmore) and Linda (Liza Snyder). Complicating matters is her ex-husband, who walked out on her 7 years before, but is back to reinsert himself into her life. In the second season, she's studying to be a nurse and gets a job at a clinic. There are other changes including little odd ones like Milmore's hair and big ones likes the disappearance of her family. Dzundza is a big personality and the show feels odd without such a big part of her life.
This is a Christina Applegate vehicle. After the success of Married with Children, the folks at NBC thought they had the formula to built around Christina. As such, it always felt fake and chemistry never truly set right. It just seemed to be too many things going on in this show. When they make one character voluntarily mute, it just showed how silly the writers got. The desperation really showed when it gets retooled dramatically for the second season. It's just a random sitcom to showcase Applegate and nothing more.
