DAD SAYS, "SUPERNANNY, BRING IT ON!," AS SIX KIDS RUN RAMPANT
WHILE MOM IS CHECKED OUT, ON ABC'S "SUPERNANNY"
"Daniels Family" � Jo has her most fiery face-off ever with a checked-out mom who has let things go for too long at home. Lisa and Steve Daniels have six beautiful children ranging in age from 2 to 13, but the pretty picture ends there. Chaos rules, not the parents. Spitting, cursing, hitting, nasty threats and general misbehavior are commonplace among the kids. Mom thinks her middle daughter, Alexus, acts like "a wild animal" and pegs her oldest daughter, Halley, 12, as the biggest culprit. But Halley is often reacting to Alexus' taunts, and seems to be held to a higher standard than the other kids, being the only child to have chores assigned her. Meanwhile older brother Josh, 13, just retreats into his room for computer games while his five sisters act out, and Mom ignores the bedlam. Dinnertime is a free-for-all of food fights, random noshing and family members scattered about, while the dining room stays empty. The kids are so out of control that the parents have given up on trying to manage them or teach them otherwise. Dad says, "Supernanny, bring it on!," and Jo tells both parents that they're lazy and need to grow up and be parents. The biggest showdown is between Lisa and Jo when Lisa refuses to follow through on a two-minute time out with her youngest. Supernanny will have some salty words for this mom, WEDNESDAY, JULY 23 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast. OAD 2/13/08)
