    It was one of theses many TV shows wich has just been brodcast some month before have been deprogrammed because of a lack of audience. It was brodcast on ABC, and realised by Mel Gibson. It has'nt really met the audience in USA but has met a very good reception in France, even if the show still not famous, everyone have seen it has find it very funny. I was guessing that probably nobody will know this here, but I've tryed though.

    The series focuses on single dad Nick Savage struggling to raise his unruly sons, Jack, Chris, Sam, Kyle, and T.J. alone, following the abandonment of their mother ten years previously, while working on call day and night as a firefighter with his brother Jimmy. His five sons are constantly stirring up trouble and creating unpredictable circumstances for the entire family to resolve in one way or another.

    Each characters are a caricature of each SP type and the "black sheep" SJ type.

    Nick Savage (ISTP) - The irritable patriarch of the Savage family. His wife left him ten years previous to the pilot. He also got mad very easily. Although some of the stuff he did to the boys was regarded as unfair, he always shows that he has his sons' best interests at heart and is very concerned for their education and well being, at his boys. However, his solution to most problems is to get angry, a solution which seems to have been picked up by his sons Chris and Kyle (and occasionally Jack.) He works as a firefighter along with his younger brother Jimmy.

    Jack Savage (ESTP) - The eldest son. He was considered the "cool" brother and had many girlfriends. He also can sing and play the guitar. He drove a red motorcycle, until he destroyed the front porch with it. Jack often takes on the role of leader for the boys and always organises stages (mainly against their father), and tries to hold the boys together. Jack is often envied tremendously by Sam mainly due to the reason that Jack is popular in school and has lots of girlfriends while Sam is nerdy and finds it hard to get girls. However there are surprising changes through the series as Sam receives a hot girlfriends while Jack is single and when Sam gets promoted above Jack in a bra and panty store. Although Jack tries to seem independent, he often shows a lot of caring for his brothers, especially T.J.

    Chris Savage (ESFP) - Considered a dumb jock, as he failed five different school subjects. He did so bad in school, he had to pretend his last name was Rodriguez just to stay on the football team (and surprisingly learned to speak Spanish). Chris seems to have a very strong conscience (as opposed to Kyle), which is shown when he butchers his old class frog under peer pressure and then imagines the spirit of the frog coming back to haunt him. Chris often agrees with Jack due to Jack's great persuasion skills, combined with the fact that Chris is easily swayed. He also shows violence as a way of solving his problems as he's not good with words.

    Sam Savage (ISFJ) - The middle son considered "black sheep" of the group, as he was responsible and did his school work. He enjoyed studying and being with his girlfriend. Sam was always considered by the boys' father as the easiest one to break when the boys were staging a front. He would often use Sam and put him under pressure to make him crack, this is shown in the pilot episode when the boys refuse to clean until their dad re-hires a maid. Nick tells Angela (Sam's dream girl) to come over to meet Sam, the boys then take pity on Sam and clean the house so Angela can come over. Another instance is when Jack buys a motor cycle (which Nick banned them to drive) which Sam falls off the back off and sprains his arm. When Nick finds out, he wants to arm wrestle Sam to try to get him to admit that they rode the bike. The majority of the plots surrounding Sam play him as the "straight" man in the comedy routine.

    Kyle Savage (ISTP) - Kyle is unruly and constantly causing chaos. He has little regard for the safety of himself or others, which is shown on most occasions. Unlike his brother Chris, Kyle shows a lack of conscience. He rarely feels bad or guilty about anything he does. When his dad catches him smoking and expresses that he is disappointed in Kyle, Kyle merely shrugs and goes back to eating dinner. Also, as an April Fool's joke he pushes a postman down the stairs, and laughs as he tells his brothers about it. He was most frequently hanging around with his younger brother T.J., whom he often convinces to do stupid things. He also shows signs of selfishness, for example, the time when he and T.J. stole a game from a Christmas charity for kids and decided they want it for themselves, after a touching appeal on TV for presents, T.J. is convinced to give it back while Kyle simply states "wow...they almost had me". Also, when he gets his first girlfriend, he decides to take her out instead of going out with T.J. like he promised. Despite his misbehavior, he appears to be more miscievous rather than malicious. He does have a softer side, as seen by his willingness to quit smoking to help his dad quit, and also his baking of cookies for a girl he is smitten with. His favorite phrase is "Kyle Rules". This is known because he spray painted it on an elephant as a Halloween prank. He also spray painted it on a highway.

    T.J. Savage (ISFP) - The youngest son who basically did everything Kyle told him to do. One instance where he didn't was the episode where Kyle took up smoking. He constantly shows his obsession of "farts". In one instance at Thanksgiving, all the other boys claim to be thankful for girls while T.J. claims to be fond of farts. In another instance he asks his dads' girlfriend, who is a radio host, if she had ever said fart on the radio, to which she replies "no but when I do I will dedicate it to you". Another time is when Sam rings the White House in regards to a birthday card, before he can ring, T.J. asks if Sam will ask if the president has ever said fart in the Oval Office. T.J. was a typical little brother and was very much protected by his older brothers.

    Jimmy Savage (ESTP) - Nick's brother who is also a firefighter along with Nick. His personality was quite the opposite of his brother's, and he seemed to lead a careless life.

    The show sounds like it could be interesting.
    That poor bastard of a father having that many mouths to feed.
    Couldn't he have one INFJ daughter that could help him out?
