Looks like the same daughter. Unfortunately, everything other aspect of the show is the same too.

I thought this one was a better than last week's was, but still not great. This show could get better given some time but I don't think it'll last long enough.

I'll probably keep watching as long as it sits between Simpsons and Family Guy. But I wouldn't follow it to another night if it moved.

I am curious, will the show ever leave the house/yard? I can't recall any scenes so far (other than the cutaways) that don't take place at 'home'. Are they taking the title to mean it will solely take place there? Are they just too cheap to build extra sets? It will be very limiting if they never leave the house.

A lot better than the last episode. A lot dirtier too. I couldn't believe that the husband was actually having cybersex with someone else. Also, it seems like the daughter gave the boyfriend head and he won't return the favor, so typically it would definitely be a misunderstanding, but with this show, who the hell knows?

I just think this show is trying too hard to be funny.

I feel like the cut away scenes to the white room is always weird. We never have that much information about the dad, and you'd think these sort of confessional type things would provide more insight into his personality and allow him to vent maybe. But I feel like it's just inserted into the show to be different and maybe "edgy." It seems out of place and forced.
