The Grubbs never premiered on FOX (it was cancelled before it debuted). The Grubb family comes from a long line of underachievers. Dad Mike milks a back injury for continued disability checks, aided by his afraid-of-change wife, Rosie. Older son Jimmy delights in blowing up stuff. Thirteen-year-old Mitch appears to be headed down the same path -- until his beautiful new English teacher, Ms. Krenetsky inspires him to aim higher, much to his family's consternation.
