‘Manzo’d with Children’ Episode Guide (Oct. 23): Lauren Celebrates Her Birthday

“California Dreamin'” (10/23/16) – The vacation continues on Lauren’s birthday and Vito has pulled out all the stops to plan a special day. Much to Caroline’s dismay, Vito booked a zip-lining excursion high above a beautiful vineyard. Caroline still fears the worst over an unresolved health issue.

Meanwhile, Chris struggles to tell the family about his plans to move. Later, Caroline pursues her dream and co-hosts a talk show in Los Angeles.

The Manzo matriarch and her fun-loving Italian family are back, but with the kids all grown up, Caroline and Al Sr. are left to deal with the daunting and unpredictable question of…what’s next? Under the same roof are newlyweds Lauren and Vito as they stress over the timing of parenthood, their budding careers, and the fact that they still live in Lauren’s childhood bedroom.

Now living in a sleek Hoboken bachelor pad, a newly confident Albie embarks on a journey to become his best self – conquering the gym and the boardroom – before his rapidly approaching thirtieth birthday. Across town, Chris will stop at nothing to prove that his first attempt as an author was no fluke. In search of new inspiration for his middle grade novel, thoughts of breaking away from his Jersey roots become increasingly tempting.

To escape the pressures of their individual lives, the boys head to Las Vegas for some good old-fashioned guy time, and later, the entire clan drops in on their beloved bestie, Greg Bennett, for a crowded California road trip. When Caroline is faced with a serious health scare, the Manzos continue to find courage in their love and laughter. As everyone knows, when life throws this Garden State gang a curveball, they always come out swinging for the fences.
