Watch Supernanny Work Her Miracles on Ten Desperate Families in a Supernany Marathon Sunday, September 10 on ABC Family

[via press release from ABC Family]


Burbank, Ca (August 28, 2006) � When children become too much for their parents to handle, it�s Jo Frost � or �Supernanny� - to the rescue! Catch a marathon of Supernanny with ten back-to-back episodes on ABC Family, Sunday, September 10 (8:00 AM - 6:00 PM ET/PT) and watch as Jo swoops in, teaches a lesson or two and facilitates miracles - all with extreme poise and a shining bright smile on her face.

In each episode of Supernanny, Jo observes how the parents handle their day-to-day obstacles with their children. Once she's assessed the pitfalls, she works with the parents, instilling her tried-and-true methods for transforming unwanted behavior. Then, after demonstrating just how well the new style will work, the parents must fly solo with the Supernanny techniques. For several days they try to implement Jo's suggestions and she revisits them at the end of the program to help keep them on track for the future. Supernanny is produced by Ricochet, Ltd.


Sunday, September 10 (8:00AM � 6:00PM PT/ET)

8:00 AM - SNA-2001 Webb Family - Cathy works full-time as a human resources manager, and Arthur is a management consultant whose job requires that he travel every week from Sunday night to Friday night. They have three children - Josef, 6, Paige, 5 -- who has Down Syndrome -- and Madison, 2-1/2. With Dad away all week, Mom is left to handle the three children alone. She has no structure to the evenings, rarely eats with the kids, and finds each night draining. Mom feels so guilty about leaving daughter Madison with a babysitter during the day that she allows the toddler to cling to her constantly. Due to Paige's Down Syndrome, Josef refuses to play with her and calls her names.

9:00 AM - SNA-1009 Collins Family - Jo Frost returns to England in her first episode with a U.K. family since her show's stratospheric success there, and her rise as a TV phenomenon here in the States. Jason and Karen Collins live in Northamptonshire, U.K. with their four unruly children who run the house by mob rule. Ben (10), Lauren (nine), Joshua (six) and Joseph (four) keep their stay-at-home mom on her toes all day. After Jo witnesses the Collins kids exhibiting bad behavior -- ranging from regular use of the "f" word to spitting and smashing up the house -- she introduces her strict zero tolerance regime.

10:00 AM - SNA-1008 Ririe Family - Scott and Jennifer Ririe have their hands full with their four children -- daughter Selia, 9, and sons Hallden, 7, Blake, 3, and Broden, 1. Scott and Jennifer have two completely different outlooks on how their children should be parented and by far their most troublesome child is the reckless and defiant Blake. While Jennifer is fearful for Blake's safety, Scott doesn't have a problem with this situation, often laughing it off. The result is a child who is out of control and parents who are out of answers.

11:00 AM - SNA-1007 Gorbea Family � Robert and Evelina Gorbea have lost control of their family, and the power is in the hands of their two-year-old son, Adam. The toddler constantly latches onto his mother and explodes into ear-busting tantrums when he's denied her attention. This monopoly of mom's time leaves Adam's siblings, 8-year-old sister Meya and 9-year-old brother Demetrius feeling neglected.

12:00 PM - SNA-2002 McMillion Family - Cheryl McMillion is struggling to raise her three children on her own, while her husband, Jonathan, a National Guardsman, is serving his tour of duty in Afghanistan. However, while Dad is overseas, there's a battle to keep the peace on the homefront, as the boys � Ryan (9), Hunter (7), and Garrett, (3) -- act out by fighting and yelling. Mom's had it with the aggression in her family.

1:00 PM - SNA-2003 Bradbury-Lambert Family - Jo Frost returns to Britain to help kickboxing couple Stuart Lambert and Laura Bradbury with their three children: Matthew, 5, Tegan-Olivia, 2, and baby Diesel, 5 months. Matthew's aggressive outbursts leave Laura battered and bruised. As the stepfather, Stuart is desperate to discipline the karate kid, but Laura won't allow it; instead, the family is split down the middle with Stuart taking responsibility for his daughter and Mom fighting to control Matthew.

2:00 PM - SNA-2004 Facente Family - Supernanny Jo Frost teams with world-renowned autism expert Dr. Lynn Koegel to tackle the parenting issues faced by a family whose three-year-old son is in his own world. Deirdre and Trae Facente don't know how to integrate their autistic son, Tristin, into daily life with their twins, Kayla and Marlana (4). Tristin is caught up in his own world of spinning, jumping, swinging and, often, taking off his clothes. Dr. Koegel and Supernanny refine the classic Supernanny methods and teach all the Facentes Dr. Koegel's inclusion and communication techniques to help engage Tristin.

3:00 PM - SNA-2005 Minyon Family - Frank and Danielle Minyon are a young, beautiful couple. They have two children, Frank (7) and Skyler (3), who rules the roost with massive tantrums that ensure she always gets her way. Danielle's drained from spending her day chasing Skyler, who's liable to explode at any second and takes advantage of Mom's inconsistent discipline. When little Frank gets home from school, it's straight to the videogames for him; since the focus is always on Skyler, he feels left out. By the time Dad gets home, an exhausted Danielle needs help, but Dad refuses to discipline his "little princess" when she acts out, and is harsh with his sensitive son.

4:00 PM - SNA-2006 Cooke Family - American viewers are treated to Jo Frost's trials with a British family, Paul and Denise Cooke and their daughters, Meghann (9), Gabriella (6) and Erin (4). The girls are bright and creative, but arguments with their parents regularly turn into shouting matches. Meghann in particular bosses her family around, terrorizes her sisters and can erupt at the drop of a hat.

5:00 PM - SNA-2007 Keilen Family - Tami and Shaun Keilen are living the American dream. This former Navy SEAL and his beautiful wife have a successful family business and four gorgeous children. However, this dream becomes a nightmare when the parents return home from work, as four-year-old twin terrors Maile and Malia run roughshod over Shaun and Tami. Well-behaved big sister Haeley (six) and docile baby brother Leighton (one) are lost in the shuffle. Tami devotes much of her home time to compulsively housekeeping, and Shaun, who can face any military challenge, can't hold his ground to the demanding twins.
