    I really enjoy this show and it’s the first Disney series that I have enjoyed, let alone watched for more than 5 seconds since Even Stevens and Lizzie McGuire. Everyone knows the Disney channel has gone from quality family programming to… not even worth a teen choice award, in the past 5 years or so. But thanks to Good Luck Charlie, there is possible hope for the network to gain more programming that is similar. And Hannah Montana is thankfully going to be dead soon so Disney will need a replacement show.

    I don’t get the appeal of the show – it’s nothing special or spectacular, if anything it’s a throwback to the sitcoms of the 1960’s and 1970’s. Perhaps that’s why it’s a hit . :)
