Non-stop humor and lots of fun in this modern, non-nuclear family comedy! Hope another network picks it up!

I loved this show - quick and funny episodes. My mom, my boyfriend and I each laughed nearly constantly throughout the first two episodes we've seen.

Two teenagers, one who barely got her credits to graduate (Molly), the other who is valedictorian and Stanford-bound (Junior), learn they are going to have a child. The moms are supportive and try to keep the dads in line (one is a Latino boxer, the other a Caucasian orthodontist, who are immediately at heads with each other). There are jokes made about everything from overreacting to what not to during pregnancy, to patriarchal aspects of society and the need for feminism, to simply various aspects of family life as the two families try to figure out their role in helping their teenage son and daughter in their upcoming pregnancy.

It's an interesting dynamic to see two teenagers pregnant and in love, two supportive mothers who have become friends, and two dads who can't get along with each other. How this affects Molly's parents plan to be empty-nesters, how it affects Junior's acceptance into Stanford, and simply how things are going to work is interesting to watch, especially with the various levels of conflict amongst family members, wives trying to get their husbands to be kind and civil, and the humor mixed in made for a great, care-free, half-hour comedy to watch.

There was also no fake laughter in the show, which I preferred.

It really was a great show and I would recommend it to anyone. I hope another network picks it up.
