  • I've been waiting yeares for Bill to get his own sitcom. I see a loving, funny, caring, REAL family. Nobody else would have bought this. Good job TBS.

    This episode was soo funny. It's great to see Bill playing a loving, smart, caring therapist and father. He reminds me so much of my dad. I like the kids too they were really really funny and they seemed very real to me. I'm sure Bill told them not to act bratty when they auditioned and THEY have probably had more training in acting than him. Because of that, Bill and Nancy were naturally funny and that helps. It also helps they taped live so we know what is really funny. I'm actually gonna compare to this to The Cosby Show with 3 kids. I think Engvall is as sarcastic as Cosby and funny. I hope that this show lasts a long time.moreless
