With offbeat humor and unflinching honesty, the series is one of the longest-running sitcoms in American television history. Local versions of this series have been successfully produced worldwide, including Casados con Hijos Argentina, which is still one of the most-watched comedy series in the country. Casados con Hijos on Telefe, ranked #1 among all FTV channels during the last five years in its timeslot in primetime*
