This TV show dives into a teen issues such as, smoking and relationships. In the pilot episode Matt gets sent to an old ladies house that claims she smoked and is missing a lung. Also in the pilot episode Eric and Annie decide its ok for Mary to date older guys.
In its first season on WB it drew in 3.2 million viewers good enough for #10 on the network. The following year it had 5.8 Million viewers it was #2 on the network. In 1998-1999 it had 7.6 million viewers making it #1 on the station. Although in never had that many viewers it remained #1 on the network for 7 years. In 2005-2006 was supposed to cancel the show. CW decided to air one more season that drew in 3.3 million viewers making it #9 on the network.
I believe the show was successful because it was more than just a teen drama, it revolved around a whole family. There was always something different going on with the family.
