Riley is upset when Gillis gets a promotion and he doesn't. So when he goes to his boss and demands a promotion, he gets it, but is it really what he wants?

As the time comes closer for Riley to leave his family, neither he nor his family want him to go. But after promising, how will they ever get out of this? Well, this is, after all, Life of Riley so we know he naturally gets booted, but how?

I don't think the episodes are good later in the season as they were early on. Perhaps that's what met it's demise. I know that later a different actor came back to play Riley, but I just can't get into it...I'm actually looking forward to the end of this series.
