Join us October 24th for Some Hair-Raising Hijinks as We Watch
Tune in this Wednesday as we watch the Halloween-themed episodes of The Middle and Suburgatory on ABC. We’ll also be hosting creepy-cool conversation about tricks, treats, ghouls, goblins, chills, thrills, and more during this two-hour Twitter Party.
The Middle is a far cry from one of *those* family sitcoms with the perfect husband & wife couple, lovely kids, manicured lawn, and picket fence. The Middle finds the humor in the real struggles and situations that families go through every day. Frankie Heck (Patricia Heaton), is a middle-aged, middle class, Midwestern working mother who uses her wry wit and sense of humor to get her quirky family through each day. Forget about athletes, movie stars and politicians. Parents are the real heroes—but Frankie Heck must be some kind of superhero. She may not be a high-powered career woman, but when it comes to her family, she’ll go to just about any length. Airs Wednesdays on ABC at 8:00/7:00c.
Single father George Altman is doing his best to raise his sixteen-year-old daughter Tessa in the big city. When he discovers a box of condoms in her bedroom, though, he decides the time has come to move her to a more wholesome and nurturing environment: the suburbs. But behind the beautiful homes and perfect lawns lurk the Franken-moms, spray tans, nose jobs, and Red Bull-guzzling teens who have nothing in common with Tessa. It’s a whole new world, one that makes George wonder if they haven’t jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire. With the help of suburbanites like old college friend Noah, flirty Alpha mom Dallas and awkward classmate Lisa, George and Tessa slowly learn to navigate the pitfalls of suburban life. With time, they might even find that it isn’t so bad.
