A DAD AT ODDS WITH HIS TEENAGE DAUGHTER BRINGS HIS FAMILY
TO THE BRINK, ON THE SEASON PREMIERE OF ABC'S "SUPERNANNY"
"Colier Family" � The Coliers of Cleveland, Georgia, are a blended family on the brink. Dad Jason coddles his three young sons under the age of 5, but is hostile to his 13-year-old stepdaughter, Madison, whom he adopted last year. Jason showers his little boys with affection but his relationship with Madison is frosty and contentious � she doesn't call him "Dad" and says he doesn't seem like one; he counters by saying she's a pathological liar and carries on "like a moron." Jason also spoon feeds his three-year-old and holds the older boys back from gaining valuable life skills by doing everything for them. Stay-at-home mom Dawn feels caught in the middle when Jason clashes with Madison and undermines her time-out attempts with the toddlers, but Jo pushes the couple to closely examine whether or not they want to continue in this marriage. Can "Supernanny" set this family on a better track? Find out when the fifth-season premiere airs, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
