Hey struggling families! Introduce a new man into your lives – a Super-Man. Airing Friday, November 14 at 9 p.m. ET on CTV (check ctv.ca to confirm local broadcast times), Super-Manny is a one-hour Supernanny special that follows therapist Mike Ruggles as he counsels a family of five struggling with disrespectful behaviour in the home. Offering a new twist on the Supernanny experience – including role-playing – Ruggles demonstrates some of his own unique techniques for counteracting troublesome behaviour in homes across America. New episodes of Supernanny continue to air Fridays at 9 p.m. ET on CTV.

While Ruggles shares many of Supernanny Jo Frost’s approaches to discipline, he has his own distinctive style for coaching families in need of his help. Rather than have an observation period with each family, Ruggles gives the kids a voice by using role-playing techniques to determine some of the root problems, as the parents watch from a monitor.

In this compelling one-hour special, Ruggles visits the Marko family of Temecula, California, where parents Doug and Tracy have their hands full with three

young daughters, Gwen (seven), Alexa (four) and Jacinda (eight months). The Marko house is filled with anger and chaos as Gwen’s disrespectful behaviour influences her sisters. After getting to the root of Gwen’s anger and advising her parents on some strategies to combat her misbehaviour, Ruggles puts the Markos’ to the test.

Super-Manny is produced by Ricochet, Ltd. Executive producers are Nick Powell, Nick Emmerson, Eddie October and Jen O ‘Connell.

Told through the comedic voice of Fey, “30 Rock” features Alec Baldwin as Jack Donaghy, the brash network executive who turns Liz’s show (and life) upside down with his meddling ways.

In addition to “30 Rock” being named outstanding comedy series at this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards, Tina Fey took home Emmy’s for outstanding writing and performing while the legendary Alec Baldwin was awarded a statue for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series. At this year’s ceremony, “30 Rock” tied the record for most comedy Emmy’s in a single season.

“30 Rock” series regulars include, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski, Scott Adsit, and Jack McBrayer and boasts a cavalcade of guest appearances from some of the most respected and recognizable faces in comedy. Watch for Jennifer Aniston (“Friends”) to guest as Liz’s former roommate and Salma Hayek (“Ugly Betty”) to appear in a recurring role as Elisa, Jack Donaghy’s new love interest.
