BILL AND JUDY FALL VICTIM TO THEIR SCAMMING TEENAGED DAUGHTER, ON THE THIRD-SEASON PREMIERE OF "STILL STANDING,"
MONDAY, SEPT. 20 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK
�Still Standing� Premieres In A New Time Period Anchoring Monday Night
"Still Scamming" -- When a doctor diagnoses Lauren with depression, the teenager sees a golden opportunity to take advantage of the situation, on the third-season premiere of STILL STANDING, in its new time period, Monday, Sept. 20 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Gerry Cohen directed the episode written by Ed Yeager.
Bill and Judy are alarmed to learn from the doctor that Lauren may be depressed and suggests therapy and medication. Lauren, with the help of her brother Brian, decides to take advantage of her parent�s concern by coming up a scam that will get her extended curfews, clothing and more if they fall for it. Meanwhile, Brian is desperate to figure out a way to stop his parents from going on college tours with him just to check out the local bars.
STILL STANDING is a comedy about a blue-collar Chicago couple working to raise their three children responsibly and not lose sight of their own youthfulness. After 17 years of marriage, high school sweethearts Bill and Judy Miller still make each other laugh and try to keep their marriage intact, even when their family pulls them in different directions. Judy's unmarried sister, Linda, butts heads with Bill, and the Millers' precocious teenage daughter, Lauren, thinks her parents are uncool. Meanwhile, their uptight, studious son, Brian, is just discovering girls, and their youngest child, Tina, would prefer to run around naked. In addition to spending time with his family, Bill spends a good deal of time with his best friend, Danny Fitzsimmons, who is working to raise his own son, who happens to be gay. Since Bill has a far more immature approach to marriage and raising children than Judy does, they work at striking a balance and remembering why they love each other, quirks and all.
STILL STANDING is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television, in association with CBS Productions. Diane Burroughs, Joey Gutierrez and Tim Doyle are the executive producers.
