Happy Family

Show Summary

Five-time Emmy Award winner John Larroquette ("Night Court," "The John Larroquette Show") returns to primetime television when he stars with fellow Emmy winner Christine Baranski ("Cybill") as would-be empty-nesters whose twenty-something children just can't seem to get the hang of flying solo in this adult comedy from executive producers Moses Port and David Guarascio (both "Mad About You," NBC's "Just Shoot Me"). Peter and Annie Brennan (Larroquette and Baranski) are anxious to begin celebrating life as a couple again now that their children are all grown up, but it just doesn't seem to be in the cards. Their youngest (and definitely, not brightest), Tim (Tyler Francavilla, "Boston Public"), should be graduating from junior college, but instead he's moving in with the "older" woman-next-door -- his mom's thirty-something tennis partner, Maggie (Susan Gibney, NBC's "Crossing Jordan"). Their eldest, Todd (Jeff Davis, "The Downer Channel"), is the apple of his dad's eye and is engaged to a great girl – and having an affair with yet another great girl. And daughter Sara (Melanie Paxson, "Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of ‘Three's Company'"), the over-achieving family success story, is in the midst of a major emotional meltdown. Pamela Fryman (NBC's "Just Shoot Me") directs the pilot from a script by Port and Guarascio in this production from NBC Studios. (Simulcast in HDTV)moreless

  • A decent show

    This show was actually pretty funny. I disagreed with NBC's decision to cancel after only one season. The show starred multi-emmy winner John Larroquette, and funny girl Christine Baranski, plus a fresh batch of newcomers who seemed to know comedy. However, networks are just interested in money, and not finding successful series.
  • Yet another fabulous tv show canceled :(

    I miss this show very much! It made me laugh and I truly loved the quirky characters!! I wish this and Whoopi would go back on air!! I don't even understand why it was taken off. I don't see how the overall viewing could be so low... Please, please, please bring it back!!!!!

    This was the all time funniest show ever!! All the characters brought a different type of humor to the show. Family life was never so funny!! I miss it terribly and would replace it any day with any one of the useless reality shows on t.v. these days!

    PLEASE COME BACK!!!
