Al Bundy is an unsuccessful middle aged shoe salesman with a miserable life and an equally dysfunctional family. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
Caroline Manzo ("Real Housewives of New Jersey") has a new show about the chaos of three adult children living in her -- and husband Albert's -- house. Despite being engaged, daughter Lauren has never left the Manzo household; sons Albie and Chris have returned home to save for a new apartment. Then Albie's girlfriend joins the group; Lauren tries to expand her business; Chris gets into messes -- it's hard for Caroline to handle. Sister-in-law Jacqueline, nearby, offers help, but caterer Albert focuses on more-productive activities.
