Rodney Hamilton is a down-to-earth guy's guy who, with his own heartland intelligence, is never afraid to speak the truth. In the middle of real, everyday America, Rodney's life revolves around his family -- wife Trina and their two boys, Jack and Bo -- his longtime friend, Barry, and his man-hungry sister-in-law, Charlie, a frequent visitor to the Hamilton house. There's never time for life to get dull for Rodney. He's not afraid to walk into a department store naked on a dare. Not afraid to take credit for flowers someone else sent his wife. Not afraid to get between his fighting pre-teen boys. Not afraid to finally pursue his dream of going out on the road to make standup comedy his career... but when he returns from his first tour, the only thing he really has to fear is adjusting to his changing family and getting his very different family life back in order.
In the second Season Premiere episode, "To Hell and Back," fearing that he's going to go to hell, Rodney takes desperate action to please the man upstairs by mowing the church lawn and filling in for the minister at the teenage Sunday School class.
