  • show Description
  • Saget plays Matt, a widower, doing his best to raise two precocious young daughters - Sarah and Emily - with a little help from his live-in dad, Sam. With adolescence rearing its ugly head, the last thing 15-year-old Sarah needs is her father looking over her shoulder 24/7. Unfortunately, as the English teacher at Sarah's high school, Matt is doing just that... and it's taking its toll on their relationship. Meanwhile, as he struggles to do his job without ruining Sarah's social life, Matt is completely unaware that he has his own secret admirer within the school's faculty. Between family melodrama and the traumas of teenhood, there is little sanity in sight for Matt or Sarah.moreless

    Notes (9)

    • In "Raising Dad", Bob Saget's character is in the same situation as in "Full House": a widower trying to raise his daughters.

    • After Nickelodeon UK saying they wouldn't air it, they finally did a few weeks after Raising Dad started airing in the UK.

    • a.k.a. "A Special R-Rated Episode"

    • Jeremy Sumpter, famous for his role of Peter in "Peter Pan" guest stars in this episode

    • Ben Indra (Josh) is added to the credits in this episode. Since the episodes aren't shown in production order, he guest stars in the next two episodes.

    • This episode was part of the WB's Wild Country Friday. Each show included a country singer. Deana Carter was on Raising Dad.

    • Jennifer Kelly Tisdale and Courtney Peldon both appeared on MTV's Undressed as regulars.

    • WB promoted this episode as a "season finale." No network would dare say an episode is a "series finale" unless the show's retiring. This one's canceled, that's different.

    • When Sarah got out of the car (after she got mad at Matt) she didn't have her backpack but when she came home she did.

    • A bit weird that about 7 episodes before this showed her having this room that she was asking for.
