Grounded for Life is an American television sitcom created by Bill Martin and Mike Schiff and set in an Irish neighbourhood of Staten Island, New York which features the comedic interplay between a family in which the parents are young and torn between wanting to be responsible and to rediscover their wild youth.

Season 3

Grounded for Life returns for its third season with exciting changes in store for the Finnerty family.

The kids are growing up, Claudia's (Megyn Price) pregnancy scare is behind them and Sean (Donal Logue) is on top of the world. He feels so good, he quits his job with the subway system and, without telling his wife, buys a 100-year-old Irish bar, Staten Island's Red Boot Pub.

Claudia is stunned by Sean's decision to live without a financial safety net, and by his choice of a business partner - his freeloading younger brother Eddie (Kevin Corrigan).

Sean doesn't know any more about running a bar than he knew about being a teenaged dad but, with Claudia's help, he's sure he can make it work.

This is also the year when Claudia, who put her dreams on hold to raise three kids, gets to make a few surprising changes of her own.

Meanwhile, daughter Lily (Lynsey Bartilson) is turning 16 and has to make some big romantic decisions. Her brother Jimmy (Griffin Frazen) is now a teenager too, and eager to spread his wings.

And their little brother Henry (Jake Burbage) happily proves that the youngest kid can get away with anything.
