Nicole (Staci Keanan) has 2 dads, after her mother passes away, she was given into the custody of Michael (Paul Reiser) and Joey (Greg Evigan), the two men whom her mother had been with in her life.  Unknown to anyone (pre-DNA testing) who is the real father however they both end up become her dads.  Michael is a conservative financial advisor, Joey is a liberal free thinking artist, and Nicole is one turbo charged teenage girl... you do the math.  So with two single straight men learning how to raising one teenaged daughter, things can get a little hairy from time to time, but ~hey... that’s family.
This is a comical TV series about the joys of two men learning what it means to be a single (double?) father.  Between a conservative father and a liberal father Nicole has best of both worlds, rigid yet fun.  It has very funny moments when Nicole drives them both up the wall, and heart warming moments when they all come together in times of trouble as a family.  There themes such as love, growing up, being responsible, and understanding... all the joys of parenting.
This is a great series, good for any family drama fans. There are episodes that focus on things such as the responsibilities of raising a teenager or coming of age stories that all parents have with their kids.  Thought I would say the characters are more like a teenage girl and two older brothers.  This builds an interesting set up for a series where the main male lead characters don't have a romantic love interest in each other.  Their relationship is more like friends, but it becomes hilarious when two single men have to show a little responsibility for their daughter.  And between two (supposedly) responsible men, they can handle a single teenage girl, right?
