TV show description:
This reality show features nanny Jo Frost helping families with children who are uncontrollable or excessively naughty.

Using a variety of methods, she helps the children control themselves and shows the parents ways to maintain order in their households.

Series Finale:     
Episode 117 — Evans Family
“Supernanny,” Jo Frost travels to Houston, Texas to work with a family whose mom died of breast cancer a year earlier. Jo lost own her mother to breast cancer when she was growing up. “To me, this is the end of the world!,” laments 6-year-old Michael, who misses his mother terribly and feels his memories of her slipping away.

Dad Gary is trying his best to raise Michael and younger sons Sean, 4 and Dylan, 3, on his own, but he’s overwhelmed and can’t bring himself to enforce the rules his wife established for the boys. The boys act out, there’s lots of sibling fighting and their screaming can be deafening at times.

In addition, Dylan still isn’t potty trained, and all the boys are picky eaters and devoted to unhealthful foods. When Sean acts up over not getting candy and Jo puts him into his first time out in ages, an epic standoff takes place. Jo helps this grieving family find peace and move forward.
First aired: March 18, 2011.

    I watch Supernanny every chance I get!!! They need to get rid of that other woman “America’s Supernanny” I know she’s a mom but she has no clue!!!! I miss Jo Frost!!!

    I agree with Susan. I notice the very last show where she was helping a dad,whom became a widow, that he and Jo seem so relaxed together. They’d make a great couple. However, I know that I don’t think that Jo will ever leave England. We will miss you Jo and wishing you a great future ahead. If you ever have the itch to do another show…be our guest.

    Although I have never been a parent I must say Jo’s techniques are awesome. I was quite impressed by her ways of managing to reach parents who were verbally abusing their children and the sad part…didn’t even realize it. I watched her show each week and will miss it terribly. I wish Jo a lovely life and there is no doubt in my mind that she will raise a wonderful family of well behaved children.

    I LOVED this program and I have no children but suffered as a child from an undisciplined crazy household. We were 5-girls: one ended up schitzophrenic, another bi-polar, a third died from cancer, a fourth relatively a surviver and me… fell through the crack but have done and is still doing a lot of work on myself. We needed super nanny badly!! I strong;y believe that my sister’s mental sicknesses is due to our crazy undiscipled home that we grew up in.

    I wish or hope that after she raises her family she is able to return and contribute to us some new and old things in her own way. Maybe she needs to train other Jojo’s to do her job!!

    Maybe the shows taught enough for families to learn just by watching the old reruns and learning from the. BUT, they need to be serious and diligent learners.

    All parents need guidance and help at different levels.

    I just want to thank Jo Jo from the bottom of my heart to her contribution. This was my favorite and also the most helpful reality show that I have experienced.

    I have been looking to see what channel and what time Supernanny is on.I was watching it on the WE station and it has not come back.

    Love the supernanny program. I only wish I could have used some of her methods when all my kids were growing up. I’ve used her techniques in the past with my grandchildren and it worked. The only problem is getting the “parents” to see what everyone should see – make time for the kids – they grow up toooooo fast and they need the discipline, love and encouragement her show tells watchers to instill in their homes.
