* AchievementsInIgnorance: When Junior's test papers come back with a perfect score he starts acting genuinely smarter. Later in the episode it's cleared up he didn't even get his own name correct on the paper, but the paper he helped Claire with was still an A+ and the climbing frame he put together himself was still built perfectly.

Sitcom that aired on ABC, starring DamonWayans. The show is about Michael Kyle and, well... his wife and kids.

Featured some clever comedy writing, but all in all was a very standard DomCom.

* DisproportionateRetribution: Michael tries to get Junior thrown out of the house for drinking all the milk. Subverted though, in that he needed an excuse to throw him out because Junior got a tattoo and wasn't able to punish him for it.
** Micheal in general does this to all his kids. He'll go to great lengths to punish his kids or get a confession no matter how small the issue is.

** In later seasons, he's more or less at extreme levels of stupidity, although an episode focuses on the idea that [[spoiler:Junior's son]] is a trigger for otherwise unseen levels of intelligence. Also, it's hinted that his flash cartoon parodying his own family might become a hit.

** It's revealed Michael is this way because Katy has always preferred Jay to him, ever since the day she was born where she would cry whenever he went near her, and so he has been trying to win his daughter's affection literally since she was born.

* LostForever: In-universe. In the episode "The Director," Kyle was trying to record his basketball game. Later, he found out that the tape is overwritten as "Kady's First Steps," and tries to recreate the video. [[spoiler: Fortunately, Jay made a DVD copy of all of their home videos beforehand.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: Michael.
** Michael forced Junior to live in the garage for around about two seasons, as he had kicked Junior out of the house. By the time he was allowed to move back in, Michael had converted his son's room into his own play area and didn't want to give it up.
*** Eventually, Junior was joined by [[spoiler:his wife and son]] in "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Remodel]]", which led to him asking Michael if they could convert the garage into an apartment. An entire episode was spent doing that, after which Michael tells Junior he can move back into the house ''purely so he can take the remodeled garage for himself''. And everyone else just went along with this.

* {{Nepotism}}: Averted in one episode. Junior comes to help Michael at work and starts bossing around his employees on the grounds that being the boss's son means he's the second-in-command. Michael ends up putting Junior through some demeaning jobs like scrubbing the toilet to teach him that he isn't the boss, and that you should treat you employees with respect.
