Supernanny: Allan and Roberta Griswold

Friday, January 22 at 8:00pm ET/PT (7:00pm CT, 9:00pm MT) on Citytv

The world’s first Super-Manny, Mike Ruggles, meets his match with a chaotic family of six from Colorado. Working dad Allan has a short temper and terrifies his children with his yelling and threats. Roberta, a stay-at-home-mom, feels like a failure and has ceded control of the house to the kids. She’s very negative, calling her house a “hellhole,” and has given up on ever getting cooperation from her four children – Joe, 7, Lauren, 11, Brianna,16, and Alex, 2. Enter Super-Manny. Mike Ruggles is a warm Chicagoan with over 17 years’ experience as a teacher and developmental therapist for children. He focuses on the specific challenges presented by this family. In addition, Mike has some tough talk for Roberta about the continued effect of her negativity on the family and her marriage — if things continue down this path, failure is assured. But Super-Manny has some powerful and innovative ways to break through to everyone including taking the whole family on a camping trip. It’s a Griswold Family Vacation unlike any other, and it will change their lives
