OMG, this show definitely caught my attention. Patricia Heaton and Neil Flynn do good as the parents, and their kids are just hilarious. That little kid is funny, the older one is a bit strange, but their sister is just worth a huge ROFL (I can't remember when was the last time I laughed so much when she tried to swim).

Rapidly becoming my favorite show. The situations are SOOOOOOOOOOO real:

- war with a teenager; hard to wake up teenager

- son springing a big project on parents...due tomorrow!

- kids unable to relax and look good in pictures

Some genuineness in behind the writing is what makes this sweet. That's also true for Modern Family.

Cougartown, which makes me laugh, is less reality-based...so I'm liking it less.

I'm liking this show as well! It's funny, especially this last episode with Brooke Shields. Brooke really was amazing and quite funny. and this show I can actually WATCH! Modern Family gives me motion sickness after 5 minutes, I can't even get through one episode. ridiculous. I have to say, that oldest kid walking around half naked with his little treasure trail is kind of hot.

I caught on late, but this show is indeed hilarious, the daughter cracks me up! I know they played it to death in promos, but her Christmas carol bad singing was so dead-on and perfect.

Sue is all kinds of love. :wub: I still remember not being able to stop laughing when she was swimming in one of the very first episodes.

Watched the WHOLE season thus far and gotta say by far the BEST season yet.

Ratings wise it is a quiet success and against some tough competition like American Idol, X Factor and Survivor.
