When NYPD Detective Jake Peralta’s wife passes away, leaving him to raise their 11 year old daughter Harriet (who fancies herself a bit of a spy) he finds himself overwhelmed by both his job and his personal life. His partner, long suffering Detective Carl Winslow and best friend NYPD IT Specialist Maurice Moss help where they can, but it’s clear they’re out of their league.
Desperate, Jake enlists the aide of his retired father Andy Taylor, former small town sheriff of Mayberry and moves to New York to help his son and grand daughter out. His small time way of doing things sometimes clashes with his son’s faster paced life, but he might just have the right things to say.
Meanwhile Christine Sullivan, having transitioned into a small private legal firm, has problems of her own. Her husband, Officer Robert Barone, has left her all alone with their troubled foster child Steven Hyde. At work she often clashes with sleazy lawyer Bob Loblaw across the courtroom, with the help of Martin Crane, a former police office who often helps with PI work. Ann Perkins, her best friend and nurse just happens to know the perfect guy to set her up with.
Jake and Christine’s worlds collide with the first date and so do their families and problems. Can Christine get over her bad experience with another police officer and find happiness with Jake? Can Jake get over the death of his wife? Will Jakes precocious and curious daughter rub off on Christine’s troubled foster child, or will Steven be a bad influence on Harriet? Can patriarch Andy Taylor help all of these troubled youngsters navigate life? And why did Jake’s Captain, Barney Miller, just approve a new transfer of Officer Barone to his precinct?

The Addams family has been part of a secret pact involving arranged marriages to broker peace between the world of mortals and world of witches for centuries. The latest generation has Gomez Addams married to the witch Samantha. They have three children: Buffy, 16, Sabrina, 14, and Eddie, 8.
Frequently dropping by the home is Samantha’s half-sister, a genie named Jeannie, Gomez’s sister Elvira and her husband, Ash Williams. Ash is also a shop teacher and football coach at the girls’ high school.
Buffy is suspicious that their new principal, Barnabas Collins, is a vampire. Ash reveals to her that his family is a long line of monster hunters and he promises to show her their ways, if she doesn’t tell her parents.
Sabrina had magic power, like her mother, manifest as she hit puberty. She wants to keep it a secret from her parents, because she knows she’ll be sent away to a boarding school for witches. The only one who knows she’s developing magic powers is the family’s kindly butler, Mr. Belvedere.
Samantha knew that Gomez wanted a boy and tried to use magic to guarantee that, but a side effect was Eddie being a werewolf. Gomez doesn’t seem to notice. Eddie is picked on a lot at school, but has a friend in his teacher; the kind and compassionate, but still stern, Mr. Feeny.
Living next door to the Addams’ is widower Harold Weir. He thinks they’re weird and doesn’t like their ways, but does have the hots for Jeannie.

Coach Eric Taylor is no longer just a football coach but he's the athletic director of a small but successful college program across a variety of sports. Eric's wife, Lorelai Gilmore runs a local hotel/restaurant that caters to the athletes of the college and their friends and families. Their family consists of a hodgepodge of character quirks and personalities; the sarcastic and dark gothic daughter, April Ludgate; the genius hacker son, Chuck Bartowski; and the all-American prodigal daughter, Kara Danvers.
What Eric doesn't have in his family is the athlete that he always wanted. But that's okay because his kids significant others somehow take care of that. Kara finds herself with hockey megastar, Pacey Witter. Chuck is with the world-class wrestler Ruth Wilder. And April winds up with the two-sport star of the school, Will Smith.
Rounding out the cast are friends/co-workers of Lorelai Gilmore; Rosa Diaz who works security and takes no nonsense from anyone who gets out of line; Veronica Mars who works as a local PI that handles the quirks of the weird college; and Britta Perry who clashes wildly with April and Ruth but still find themselves as a tight-knit group.
I don't know....they're all tremendous actors and actresses who would work brilliantly together. Make the ages work in a way that make sense too. I'm not winning anyway.
A dysfunctional family comedy from the creators of Married With Children.
Red Forman is the disgruntled patriarch of the family he had always dreamed about..... in his nightmares!!!! Red faces constant disappointment on the homefront as his sarcastic wife (Claire Dunphy) is constantly on his case, his nerdy, unathletic son (Adam Goldberg) lets him down at every turn, and military obsessed daughter (Eve Baxter) is far from the princess he always envisioned his little girl would be! Add in his mooch of a father-in-law (Arthur Spooner) who lives in his basement and his sister-in-law (Marcy D'Arcy) who opposes everything he stands for, and Red's home life is in constant disarray!
Red's attempts to find some solace at his dead end job as manager of PriceMart are thwarted by his new assistant manager (Dina Fox) who undermines his authority at every turn and The Janitor who makes his life a living hell on a daily basis.
His occasional dealing with his baby-faced genius family doctor (Doogie Howser M.D.) and his children's perky, overly optimistic teacher (Cory Matthews) only darken Red's already foul mood!
His only saving grace is his weekly Friday night poker games with his immature, womanizing neighbor (Brian Hackett) and the neighborhood police officer (Mike Biggs)!
