Read the description for "Welcome to the Family" below:
Dan Yoder (Mike O'Malley) and wife, Caroline (Mary McCormack), think they finally have it made. Their daughter, Molly (Ella Rae Peck) -- not the most diligent of students -- has managed to graduate from high school and has been accepted to college. Her proud parents are looking forward to an empty nest and are breathing a heavy sigh of relief.
Across town, Molly's secret boyfriend, Junior Hernandez (Joey Haro), is graduating from his high school with top honors and has plans to go to Stanford. Parents Miguel and Lisette are bursting with pride. Everything seems like it is falling into place for them, but unbeknownst to both families, Molly and Junior are about to become parents themselves.
Once the teens break the big news, these two very different families are thrown together, which goes anything but smoothly... and the news that Molly and Junior are engaged to be married doesn't exactly make things better.
"Welcome to the Family" premieres Oct. 3 at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
