  • My Wife and Kids

    One of my favorite sitcoms. Damon Wayans is hilarious. :)
  • disappointed!!!

    I hate the show had to end at all, but especially like this!!
  • Disappointing ending NOT FAIR!!!!!!!!!!!

    What happens next the episode left more questions than answers
  • I'm very disappointed with the way they ended it all. It isn't fair to all the loyal viewers to just end it and leave things hanging, there was no Closure.

    This show has and will always be loved by so many people of all races and cultural backgrounds. I would challenge anyone to watch an episode without laughing, and with the state the world is in right now, we need more laughter...It is very frustrating when you find a great, lighthearted, entertaining show that is suitable for the whole family, then have the powers that be pull it off the air. There is a lot of rubbish on TV that seems to stay around forever, but they shut down the quality shows like My Wife and Kids, it seems without even thinking about the loyal viewers. I'll have to buy the DVD's so I can continue to get my fix....moreless
  • it shouldn't have ended

    i love this show it shouldn't have ended like it did, it would have gotten a ten rating but the one thing i didn't like was the clifhanger when there was no intent of bringing the show back, they should have allowed another season to finish it off properly, a proper send off although i rather it not finish it was so funny. i know i will be buying the series on DVD. now i'm interested in what happenes to michael and jay and the rest of the family with a new baby coming along. well now we'll never know. every dissapointedmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Jay had the last words in the whole series. But Michael did since he said "woah" in a silent way but closed caption shows it and if you listen closely you can hear it.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Michael: (last words of the episode) Jay, I've changed my mind, I don't want you to go through with this procedure, it's easier for me to just get the vasectomy.
      Jay: It doesn't matter anymore.
      Michael: Why not?
      Jay: Because I'm pregnant.

    • It was revealed by ABC, if they did pick the series up for another year, Jay would not have been pregnant because the results would have been wrong. However Michael, Jay, and Kady would have moved near to Jay's parents, leaving Claire and Jr. behind.

    • After five seasons, My Wife and Kids got cancelled because, according to ABC TV executives, the show had been "played out".
