Irish Catholic couple Sean and Claudia Finnerty live in Staten Island, New York with their three children--Lily, Jimmy, and Henry. They get into all sorts of trouble, usually because of Sean's brother Eddie, who's got connections all over town. Sean and Eddie's father Walt often drops by and shares in the disaster. Most adventures are later recalled and they find out exactly what happened, like when the family car was supposedly stolen, when Sean's credit card was mysteriously maxed out, and even when Sean causes a blackout on Super Bowl Sunday. All this and more, and because Sean and Claudia were young and carefree when they got married and had kids, they are now grounded for life.Written by

Stephen Root was originally announced in the role of Walt, but was later replaced by Richard Riehle. However, Root returned as a periodic guest star in the role of Claudia's father. See more »

I'm going over to Dean's.
Okay, cool. Before you go, you're going to scrub all the puke out of the back of your grandfather's car.
But then I'll smell like puke.
You know what? I don't give a glis.

This has got to be one of the funniest shows to come along in a long time. Just when it seemed like there were no more traces of good 80's-esque sitcoms.......here comes another. There are very few good shows on nowadays. This is a great one in an era of too many "reality-shows". Yet this could be some peoples' reality. Don't miss this one! Megyn Price is terrific....what a find!
