Debuting in 2001 as a mid-season replacement series on FOX, Grounded for Life revolves the Finnerty family of Staten Island. In this sitcom, Sean (Donal Logue) got Claudia (Megyn Price) pregnant and they married when they were just 18-years-old.
They’re now in their thirties and have three children but they’re essentially still kids themselves. Their three headstrong children are Lily (Lynsey Bartilson), Jimmy (Griffin Frazen), and Henry (Jake Burbage). On top of the challenges of parenting, Sean and Claudia must also deal with Sean’s father, Walt (Richard Riehle), Sean’s younger brother, Eddie (Kevin Corrigan), and their geeky neighbor, Brad (Bret Harrison).
The sitcom initially aired on FOX and was cancelled early into the show’s third season. It was picked up by The WB network soon after and survived on the small network through season five. The last episode aired in January of 2005 with eldest daughter Lily graduating from high school and Claudia, pregnant with Sean’s fourth child, going into labor.
