Unbelievably unwatchable tripe!
This show insults the sensibilities of a moderately intelligent four year old. Scott Baio may not be a very good actor, but in this show, Willie Ames makes him look like Olivier. In all honesty, "Charles In Charge" is down right embarrassing. The scripts have a level of sophistication that may be beneath an elementary school play.
