The Fitzpatricks is a drama that aired on CBS.

The focus was on the Fitzpatricks, an Irish Catholic family of six who lived in Flint, Michigan. The father, blue collar, Mike Fitzpatrick worked overtime as a steelworker to provide a life for the family; while his pregnant wife, Maggie, also worked part time at a diner as a waitress to help support the family's income. They had four children, eldest son, Sean; introspective second son, Jack; only daughter Maureen (nicknamed Mo); and youngest son, Max. The family also owned a dog, aptly named Detroit. Also involved in the family was R.J., who was Max Fitzpatrick's African-American best friend. A young Helen Hunt played neighbor, Kerry Gerardi, supposedly a friend of Mo's, who was interested in the older Fitzpatrick brothers, Sean and Jack, which sparked a bit of a rivalry between the two. Much of the stories deal with moralistic lessons and also with growing up.
