Plot Synopsis

Inspired by the childhood of creator/executive producer Tim Doyle, who also narrates in voiceover as older Timmy, THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT is a half-hour comedy series set in the '70s that follows a traditional Irish-Catholic family, the Clearys, as they navigate big and small changes during one of America's most turbulent decades. In a working-class neighborhood outside Los Angeles, Mike and Peggy raise eight boisterous boys who live out their days with little supervision. The household is turned upside down when oldest son Lawrence returns home and announces he's quitting the seminary to go off and "save the world." Times are changing and this family will never be the same. There are 10 people, three bedrooms, one bathroom and everyone in it for themselves.

On Tuesday, January 8, 2019 at 8:30pm ET/PT, ABC debuted "The Love List," the mid-season premiere of THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT, with Ken Jeong guest starring as Grover. After seeing how loving Pat's friend's parents are, the Cleary boys beg Peggy to tell them she loves them. Playing on their insecurities, Peggy posts a ranked list of their names on the fridge in the hopes that it will bring out their competitive instincts, and someone will divulge who broke the dining room light fixture. Charged with several emotions, Timmy incriminates his brother but feels so guilty that he gets a horrible stomachache and heads to the hospital, where he unexpectedly reveals another secret. Back at home, Mike invites Grover (guest star Ken Jeong), a co-worker, disguised as an amateur detective to their home to help compel a confession out of the guilty Cleary child.
