Ouch – this show lasted exactly 6 weeks. Fred, Dudley’s son, was TROUBLE and Dudley couldn’t figure out the basics of raising his son.
Here’s the only funny bit about this show – the Foreign-Born Domestic (remember, a staple of TV Single Dad shows) only speaks Spanish. Dudley doesn’t speak Spanish, but Fred does. So, piles of conversations over Dad’s head. Ha. Ha.
Lupe Ontiveros is better known as the actress who portrayed the singer Selina’s killer in the biopic of the same name.
