About the show:
In Season Four of the Emmy Award-nominated family sitcom "Good Luck Charlie," the Duncan Family decide to build their dream house after the family home is devastated by termites. Now a family of seven, the Duncans are busy juggling careers, college, high school, preschool, friends, baby bottles and diapers.
The ever expanding brood of children has meant changes for the family: Teddy and Spencer try their best to remain good friends, PJ enrolls in cooking school, Gabe develops a crush on his new neighbor and the bug business isn't so great for Bob. Meanwhile, Teddy has fallen for Bob's new employee, Amy juggles life as a stay-at-home mother to five, Teddy works on her college application process and Charlie celebrates turning four years old.
Easy-going older brother PJ has moved out on his own and enrolled in cooking school. However he still manages to fill time with crazy antics as he grows up and takes on more adult responsibilities.
