Geez, I forgot all about this show. Hope they don't change it too much (storylines, characters, etc.) now that it's on a different network.

Thanks for the heads up! I usually don't check out the WB to see what's on so I would have missed this.

I actually love that this is joining the WB's Friday night line up and is replacing Sabrina the Teenage Witch, which has moved to Thursdays. Sabrina should have been cancelled the moment she graduated high school......maybe even before. But Grounded For Life is an awesome show that FOX never gave a chance, not unlike a lot of the shows they air. Also it makes for a great block of comedy with Reba and Greetings From Tucson.

Been looking forward to this all week. Thanks to jkingfish for forcing me to watch this when it first came out, and damn Fox for not seeing how good it is.

DOH! thanks for the correction. I don't watch WB normally, and just heard it was on before and after Reba on the radio into work this morning, so I figured that it was 8 and 9. I'll correct the above

Two great episodes tonight ... I really missed this show's offbeat comedic style.

I loved both episodes tonight....speaking of the old man... Did Richard Riehle quit the show or get fired or something? I liked him on there when used in moderation, but I can't really say i missed him on tonights episodes

I was wondering where the grandpa was as well.

Glad to see Sabrina off the Friday night line up! I haven't watched Grounded For Life in a while, but will probably catch it every week.

For those of you who haven't seen it, don't just set your VCRs for Grounded for Life. Set it also for What I Like About You, a consistently funny show. It's been the Friday night prime time lead all this time for a reason! Amanda Bynes is the best young actress I've seen in a long while.

I noticed the abscence too, and I think at imdb, the actor is listed as "2001 - 2002", meaning he left the show.

What about Afro Brother? I don't remember Afro Brother. Or, at least, I don't remember him with the Afro.

I always watch that show + the whole WB lineup on Fridays. I think alot of people don't because of Jennie Garth, the way she was on 90210. She is funny here and I hope they can make it another year. I don't want it cancelled like Popular was.

I love What I Like About You - I think its actually my favorite comedy this year. Amanda is great! I wasn't expecting much from the show seeing Jennie Garth in it, but I actually enjoy her in it as well - for some reason I greatly disliked her prior to this show.

I especially liked when the actor who plays the father (Donal??), said in the preview "Smart like a (pause) Frog". Nice dig at "Fox"

The WB is going to show all 13 episodes that FOX never aired of the show. Remember, the third season started on FOX in September, then the show just magically vanished after two episodes. So far, two down, eleven more to go.

Hopefully The WB will renew the show as I'm a big fan of it.
