Episode 1

Pilot

Wed, Mar 28, 2001 30 mins

In the series pilot, Michael (Damon Wayans) is upset. Why? Because Janet (Tisha Campbell) wants to work full-time, because Jr. (George O. Gore II) admires gangsta rap and because Claire (Jazz Rycole) wants to go to school in a tank top. Making matters worse, younger daughter Kady (Parker McKenna Posey), keeps yammering at him in Spanish---thanks to Rosa (Marlene Forte) the nanny, who, he's convinced, can't stand him.
