President Gilcrest and his trophy wife are living in the White House, with their overachieving daughter sidetracked by pregnancy, a couch potato hopeless son, a genius young son, and an odd middle school girl.
Because a main cast member left early in production many scenes had to be re-shot that resulted in the episodes being shown out of order causing many continuity errors. For example Julian moved into a playhouse before he built in a later episode. See more »
Sarah Chalke is Polly. She is a mom to her young daughter and recently divorced to her loser husband played Jon Dore. With limited options, she moves back in with her parents played by Brad Garrett and Elizabeth Perkins.
The father is no nonsense guy but have a hard time to get his way. The mother is a free thinking liberated woman. They are both just caricatures. It's hard to see the love or chemistry between them and the family.
Sarah Chalke is the only good thing in this show. And it's not enough to keep the show going. Half a season is all there is.
