not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Still Standing is a comedy about a blue-collar Chicago couple working to raise their three children responsibly and not lose sight of their own youthfulness. After 18 years of marriage, high school sweethearts Bill and Judy Miller still make each other laugh and try to keep their marriage intact, even when their family pulls them in different directions. Judy's married sister, Linda, butts heads with Bill, and the Millers' precocious teenage daughter, Lauren, thinks her parents are uncool. Meanwhile, their uptight, studious son, Brian, is discovering girls, and their youngest child, Tina, would prefer to run around naked. In addition to spending time with his family, Bill spends a good deal of time with his best friend, Danny Fitzsimmons, who is working to raise his own son, who happens to be gay. Since Bill has a far more immature approach to marriage and raising children than Judy does, they work at striking a balance and remembering why they love each other, quirks and all.
After Judy and Bill order Lauren to drop basic math and take a more difficult algebra class, her bad attitude about schoolwork multiplies and the conflict between Lauren and her parents increases exponentially. Judy and Bill then try to solve the problem using the art of negotiation.
Bill is extremely excited to teach nearly 16-year-old Brian how to drive. So excited, in fact, that after their first lesson, Bill takes the money he and Judy have saved for a new family car and buys a used 1981 "party van." In other happenings, Judy decides to pass along some of her old threads from the '70s to Lauren, who keeps bugging her parents for money so that she can buy vintage clothing. Lauren: Renee Olstead.

Bill and Judy's elation over Brian and Lauren entering the workforce for the first time quickly turns into frustration when both the teens go out of the way to bond with their new bosses. Bill and Judy can't stand the sudden interest the kids are taking in things they've tried (and failed) for years to convince their offspring to enjoy, like Led Zeppelin and baking brownies.
Bill assumes Lauren was chosen to perform a monologue in a theater production at school because the drama instructor, with whom Bill once had a summer fling, is still harboring unresolved romantic feelings. To Bill's surprise, Judy encourages her hubby to milk the teacher's crush for all it's worth.
Judy's motherly instincts tell her that Lauren's new trio of friends are a bad influence, a suspicion that seems to be confirmed when Lauren's caught shoplifting a bracelet at the mall. Although Bill is first inclined to believe his daughter's claims of innocence, he has a change of heart when a brand-new MP3 player shows up in his little girl's bedroom.
Bill's turning 40, which should be a time of celebration in the Miller home, but for the fact that Brian is upset at his dad for disclosing to Judy the embarrassing details of a private father-son discussion they had about the body changes of puberty.
Eager to relive their glory days, chaperones Bill and Judy are excited about a teen dance with an '80s theme.

The Millers want to spend Christmas Eve at home feasting on the holiday dinner Judy's always dreamed of preparing, but Bill's mother (Sally Struthers) isn't happy with those plans and gives them a guilt trip about visiting her tiny new apartment instead. Elsewhere, Linda decides to make life merrier for someone who's less fortunate when it comes to personal style.
Judy's parents arrive from Indiana to take the kids on a three-day trip, but cancel it when they think Judy is coming down with a cold and needs lots of TLC. While Judy enjoys being coddled back to health, Bill, Brian and Lauren must pick up the slack and perform all of the household chores.
Being the statistician for the school basketball team gives Brian an in with some of the more popular kids, until Bill finds out they're being nice because his son runs their errands. So he evens the score with them by getting them in trouble with their parents after a night of partying.
While visiting from Florida, Bill's macho father, Al (Paul Sorvino), decides he wants to spend some quality time with his son so he makes plans to re-create a past bow hunting trip he took Bill on as a child to toughen the boy up. Brian, meanwhile, sharpens his math skills as he prepares to compete in the Math Olympics.
Judy accompanies Bill to the restaurant he enjoys frequenting with his buddies and discovers the attraction isn't the food but the attractive, flirtatious waitresses. Although Judy says she isn't jealous, she would like Bill to admit his true motives for dining there.
Bill and Judy are afraid that Louise (Sally Struthers) may be bilked out of her life savings by her new gentleman friend, who works as an investment counselor to senior citizens.

Linda: Jennifer Irwin.
Bill tries to pry Brian away from his nerdy friends and get him to become closer companions with Fitz's athletic son, Scotty (Benjamin Knapple).

Meanwhile, Lauren wants to prevent Judy from making a fool of herself during a step-dance performance at the St. Patrick's Day parade.
Brian takes a part-time job where Bill works to earn money for a tutor, but he soon adopts his dad's bad ethics and drops the notion of needing study help at all.
