My Wife and Kids

Show Summary

Popular film and television star Damon Wayans stars as Michael Kyle, a loving husband and modern-day patriarch who rules his household with a unique and distinct parenting style. As he teaches his three children some of life's lessons, he does so with his own brand of wisdom, discipline and humor.

Now that Jr. and his girlfriend, Vanessa, are parents of a baby boy, Michael and his loving wife, Jay, are proud but young grandparents, and are adjusting to their new roles. Not only are they trying to help their son become a responsible father, but they want to help the teenaged couple make some important decisions in their lives. They all seem to have their own opinion when it comes to answering such questions like: Should the new parents continue to live in the Kyle garage? Should they get engaged or married? Will the new baby make Jr., who is terrified in his role as a new dad, act any smarter?

While trying to turn his son into a man, Michael begins to look at where his own life has taken him and wonders if he should make some changes. Jay, who also starts to question her purpose in life, pursues her educational goals and, along the way, decides to open a restaurant. Meanwhile, oldest daughter Claire's relationship with Tony, the odd and oddly endearing bible thumper, has endured. Claire is now a high school senior and is more than ready to do all the things that come along with that special time in life.

Little Kady feels a bit threatened by the new baby's presence, and her family is there to help her get over any insecurities. She continues her friendship with the young piano virtuoso, Franklin, who often complicates Michael's life. The boy sensed an opening in the family with Jr.'s impending graduation into adulthood, and Franklin is still trying to weasel his way into becoming the "good new son."

Michael can only hope his parental advice, mixed with witty humor, will steer his children to act responsibly. Through it all, Jr., Claire and Kady know they can turn to their father when they need his guidance. Sometimes it seems as though, even without their asking, Dad knows ahead of time what they might need, and he's only too happy to provide direction -- often to their chagrin.

  • Damon Waynes seems nice, but he made one crappy show

    1.0
    He plays a 30 something man who, I'm pretty sure literally, dub himself the king of the house. The bald headed, unlikable, unreasonable, disrespectful, idiot of a king of the house. He deliberately calls his son stupid instead of doing the opposite and telling him he need to work hard, his relationship with his oldest daughter, Clair, is the cliched father-daughter love/hate, mainly hate relationship we've seen before, he barely listens to his wife and is only (how can I put this?) "nice" to his youngest daughter, Katie; almost as if he loves her more than his other children. Aside from the episode where the torture porn fell on him, he gets no consequences for his actions. I don't recommend you watching this unless you're in the mood to watch 3 kids and a full grown woman being undermined by this man.moreless

  • Too corny

    2.0
    I'd say this show is too corny. I mean this is a african american family tv show. The way the show is made makes it so corny. No black/african american families act like this on tv. Now if you compare Everybody Hates Chris to this show you would know what I'm talking about. The mom (Jay) is way too annoying. She complains about every little thing with her relationship and kids. Then they have episodes where she calls a special docter to help solve their relationship problems which is corny. What couple calls for help. Jr is stupid af, and so is Clair, and katie is just not cute at all. The way the little girl katie act is not even how most little kids act.moreless
