"Happy Family" is an NBC sitcom that debuted in fall of 2003. John Larroquette and Christine Baranski star as Peter and Annie Brennan, soon-to-be empty nesters who couldn't be happier about it. But when their youngest son Tim (Tyler Andrews) flunks out of community college, Peter and Annie cannot escape the duties of parenthood. Their eldest son, Todd (Jeff Bryan Davis) decides to dump his fiancée only days before the wedding. Their daughter Sara, while having a successful career, cannot find or keep a man and instead socializes with her parrot. If that isn't enough, after Tim drops out of college he moves in with Susan, a divorced middle-aged family friend and neighbour, and announces that they are dating. Peter and Annie are constantly trying to find time without the kids and their problems, but while trying to maintain a happy family image, they end up involved with their kids more than ever.

The show ran for one complete season on Tuesdays at 8:30pm on NBC. However, the ratings were not up to NBC's standards and the show was not renewed for the following season.
