The Kumars at No 42


This is a hybrid show; part sitcom, part chat show. Each episode begins as a traditional sitcom following the trials and tribulations of a dysfunctional suburban (or immigrant) family - mother, father, son/daughter and grandmother. They differ from most families in that over their back garden they have built a chat show studio in order to further the television career prospects of their son/daughter, the host. Each week two genuine celebrity guests arrive to be interviewed by the family.
