Supernanny (s/ABC): Friday, December 11 at 8:00pm ET/PT (7:00pm CT, 9:00pmMT)
Nicole and Nate Beck are classic tag-team parents. Nate works full-time and Nicole stays at home, works part-time AND is a full-time student. Add to the mix three boys -- Hunter, 9; Pierson, 5; and Bronson, 3 -- who offer huge challenges. The youngest has just been expelled from pre-k, spits at Mom and calls Supernanny a curse word; the oldest has attention-deficit disorder, and homework time hangs like a black cloud over each day as the yelling just escalates; and the middle son is extremely stubborn and contradictory. Mom and Dad think they have a time-out tactic called the Penalty Box, but it’s so ineffective that Jo pulls the plug on it immediately when Bronson runs out of the house, down the street and nearly into traffic. Jo notices that Bronson has a speech problem which is probably fueling his aggression. On top of all this, she is shocked to see how the parents’ master bedroom has the kids’ scribbles all over the walls and giant piles of clothing stacked on the floor. Find out if Jo can fix the Beck family.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, with celebrity volunteer six time Grammy award winner volunteer Mary J. Blige, traveled to Erie, PA to meet the indomitable Clara Ward, who has cast the adversity of her health and surroundings aside to run a nonprofit youth development and family center from her home. Having experienced a childhood of hardship, Clara vowed to make a difference for the next generation, and neither modest means nor the challenges of Myostenio Gradi, a degenerative muscular disease, have stopped her. For decades Clara has put her personal needs second to feeding, clothing and nurturing children in her home, organizing charitable drives, arranging field trips, tutoring, giving cooking lessons and much more. But the rampant disrepair of her crumbling two-story home increasingly threatens the life-long mission that means so much to her and the people in her neighborhood. Furthermore, the house lacks the wheelchair accessibility she needs, requiring her to stay with her daughter and head back and forth each day.
