Season 1

Right out of high school, Sean Finnerty got his girlfriend Claudia pregnant.

Now she's his wife and at just 32, he's somehow found himself with 14-year-old daughter Lily, two little boys, Jimmy and Henry, and a constant struggle between his need to be responsible and his desperate desire to be irresponsible.

His judgmental father Walt and devil-may-care brother Eddie are no help at all. When they all get together, stories always start to fly.

Of course, Sean's family will never let him finish a story – they interrupt, they debate, they derail, they defend themselves – just like any good family would.
