Trivia

In February 2016, the conservative activist group Catholic League ran an ad in The New York Times condemning ABC for planning to air The Real O'Neals on the basis of what the league's president, Bill Donohue, called Dan Savage's "maniacal hatred of Catholicism." See more »

After watching three episodes of this series, I want to support this show and see more. Having a an almost teenage daughter I want her to feel loved and supported. All the characters in the show have their "secrets" and are figuring out how to deal with their new changes and yet still love and support each other. The mom with her religious beliefs working it out with the dad who she is divorcing and "secrets" she found out about her kids, the dad still trying to be a dad to his kids, the older brother being supportive of his younger brother and of course Kenny, dealing with his "coming out". This is probably the least interesting to me. I like the family dynamics and overall the warmth and love of the family.
