DESCRIPTION:
(from FOX's press release) In the first half-hour of the season finale, Vanessa needs to study for the SAT but keeps blowing it off to make extra money working at a coffee house. Bernie thinks she's too comfortable living at home and working, so he asks her to pay rent and amenities. Unfortunately for Bernie, Vanessa manages her money well and she sees no reason for college. Meanwhile, Jordan discovers the ability to overpower Vanessa because he is now taller than she is and begins to exert his power with other members of the house, which doesn't sit well with Bernie. In the second half-hour, Bernie suffers a near-death experience due to the kids' carelessness and when he awakens from being electrocuted, he feels the need to lovingly impart all of his knowledge to the children before he passes. Inspired by something he saw on "Oprah," Bernie goes all-out and makes videos for every topic the children could possibly need his advice on after he's gone. Meanwhile, Vanessa is struggling with her college applications, and she believes Bernie and Wanda don't have faith in her abilities because Bernie wants to use his celebrity influence with the schools; however, Jordan takes advantage of Bernie's state of mind and scams him out of material goods at every turn. Tune in to the "Growing Pains"/"Bernie's Angels" season-finale episode of THE BERNIE MAC SHOW Friday, April 14 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
