TV show description:      
Set in the 1980s, this sitcom follows the Goldberg family, a loving American family who yells more than most. Adam, the geeky 11 year old son, documents his family’s life with his video camera. The series is based on creator Adam F. Goldberg’s real-life family experiences, which he also used to capture on video tape.

Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) is an overbearing and overprotective PTA mom who loves to shop and isn’t afraid to use her big mouth to protect her kids. She rules the family with absolute authority — and zero sense of boundaries.

Murray (Jeff Garlin) is a gruff and hot-tempered dad but is never scary. He’s triggered by a pin drop but struggles to stay calm. He runs the “Ottoman Empire”, the family furniture business and comes home weary after a long day, wanting nothing more than to veg in front of the television in his underwear. Helpless without his wife, he’s content to let her rule the roost.

Eldest child Erica (Hayley Orrantia) is 17 years old and in rebellion mode. She’s smart and sexy and is nobody’s fool. She manipulates and beats up on her younger brothers but ultimately looks out for them.

Overly emotional, Barry (Troy Gentile) is 16 years old and has severe middle child syndrome. He’s got horrible hygiene and even worse style. Awkward around girls, he spends his free time at the Moonlight Skate Rink and free-style rapping.

Camera-wielding Adam (Sam Giambrone) is the youngest child who’s bursting with energy — and is largely ignored by his family. Nothing makes him happier than a family fight. He thinks arguing is the only way to really interact with his older siblings — since they usually won’t have anything to do with him.

Al “Pops” Solomon (George Segal) is the wild man of the clan — and the widowed grandfather. Sometimes a little senile, he’s a shameless Don Juan who’s schooling little Adam in the ways of love. He dresses in leisure suits and dates an endless parade of younger gold diggers. Pops’ grandchildren adore him while his daughter tries to mother him, something he does not appreciate.

    Please leave one of the only decent shows on network television on the air. There is enough garbage out there that if the network feels an overwhelming urge to cancel something, have at it, just not this.

    They aren’t really going to cancel this show are they??? It’s the only show that I make sure I watch every week and have the series programmed to record. The characters are great and it’s the only show this year that can make me laugh. If the network cancels this show, their ratings will tank. I don’t know why they are even considering it what with all the other trash that is on TV these days.

    MY FAVORITE SHOW IN A LONG-LONG TIME…I couldn’t pick a better show to have a genuine laugh! Even if you are not from the 80’s, the show is hilarious!!! the characters are perfect! the chemistry with the actors is amazing.
    I really hope it doesn’t get cancelled. It will be a shame. I have a 6yrs. old boy that I would love he can enjoy it in the future, when he has the age to understand it beter.

    OMG! I just watched the toga party one and it was
    So funny so true. We had toga parties at my house
    Back in the 70 and 80’s. The clothes the whole show
    Is exactly as I remember it! It should stay on
    And more parents today should watch it.
