Unusually Thicke

Series Summary
Alan Thicke is best known for playing a husband and father on classic sitcom "Growing Pains," but he also plays the same roles in real life with much younger wife Tanya and opinionated teenage son Carter by his side. "Unusually Thicke" offers a "reality-ish" -- an adjective used by Thicke to describe the series -- peek inside the famous household. So what makes it reality-ish? To quote the actor further, the Thickes take their "relatable real-life stories and blow them up to amuse and amaze, tossing in a handful of celebrity friends along the way." An example of a relatable story that is made bigger with a celebrity is Carter inviting actor and comedian Bob Saget to the family's garage sale to help drum-up sales. Other celebrities making cameos include Saget's "Full House" co-star John Stamos, retired professional athletes Magic Johnson and Wayne Gretzky, and Grammy-nominated singer -- and Alan's son from his first marriage -- Robin Thicke. How's that for some name-dropping?
