Party of Five, only without the dead parents. Blossom veteran Joseph (note the Rick Schroeder-y change from Joey) Lawrence has to be the head of the household for a bunch of teens who really don’t want to be bossed around. Whoa. The WB tried this as a cartoon back in 1999 (Mission Hill) and wound up with the lowest ratings in the history of network televsion. Catch it quick, yes?

Update: As easily predicted, the show disappeared after a mere four episodes. Bye!
