Why was this show cancelled?
This show was hilarious. Max Gail was the father, who sometimes gave good advice, but was mainly there to show that a nuclear family existed. The real plot was Shirley Williams trying to interact with the kids, played by the real-life Zappa siblings. Moon Unit and Dweezil were very believable in their parts as teenagers trying to survive their mother's interference. This was a tragedy that it was cancelled and that Shirley went on to do the abysmal "Steel Magnolias."
