Bill Engvall's character is a loving husband and father who is constantly trying to provide for his family while dealing with the everyday problems that arise. Nancy Travis plays his wife, Susan, and together their dynamic is portrayed as a loving, yet realistic depiction of what life is like for married couples with children. Engvall's character is often seen trying to catch up on work at home late at night, whereas Susan is a stay-at-home mom who also manages to run her own home-based business.

Graham Patrick Martin's character, Trent, is the middle child and a bit of a troublemaker, often getting into mischief with his best friend, Neal. Skyler Gisondo plays the youngest of the Pearson children, Bryan, who is portrayed as a bright and curious child with a vivid imagination.

The show's supporting cast includes Tim Meadows as Bill's friend and fellow counselor, Paul DuFrayne, who often provides comic relief.
