Growing Pains (1985)

Alan Thicke as "Dr. Jason Seaver"

The "Father Knows Best" of the 1980s, Dr. Jason Seaver is a psychiatrist who has moved his practice into his Long Island, N.Y., home so that his wife, Maggie, can resume her career. Their children are girl-crazy Mike, brainiac Carol and cute little Ben (later, precocious Chrissie was born). This series, however, tackles issues that "Father Knows Best" wouldn't have: drugs, suicide, peer pressure, alcohol. But the Seavers pull through problems with a sense of humor and usually emerge stronger than before.

Golden Globe (1988) Nominated Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy
