Synopsis by Mark Deming
A teenage boy has his life turned upside down (usually once a week) in this half-hour situation comedy. 14-year-old Tucker Pierce (Eli Marienthal) is already having enough trouble dealing with school, the onset of adolescence, and his body's new habit of betraying his feelings about girls when his father decides to leave his mother Jeannie (Noelle Beck) for a younger woman. With few options, Tucker and Jeannie end up moving in with Jeannie's sister Claire (Katey Sagal), her husband Jimmy (Casey Sander), and their son Leon (Nathan Lawrence). Tucker is more than a little creeped out by Leon's malign obsession with professional wrestling, and Claire is convinced her nephew is some sort of pervert, but Tucker fortunately has an ally in the neighborhood -- a pretty girl his age named McKenna (Alison Lohman). Directed and co-produced by Allan Arkush, Tucker premiered on the NBC television network on October 2, 2000.
