Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Co-created by series star Daniel Stern, the ABC sitcom Regular Joe cast Stern as Joe Binder, the recently widowed owner of a hardware store. Joe lived with his well-meaning but overbearing father, Baxter (Judd Hirsch), his high-schooler son, Grant (John Francis Daley), and his college-coed daughter, Joanie (Kelly Karbacz) -- who also happened to be a single mother, with a cute baby daughter named Zoe. When not at home, Joe worked overtime at his store, assisted by Grant and high-strung clerk Sitvar (Brian George). Evidently, this property underwent a great many alterations before it was unveiled to the public, notably the changing of Stern's character name from Joe Herman to Joe Binder. Regular Joe premiered March 28, 2003.
