I think it's going to come off as a "copy cat" of that show and people are going to reject it, thinking it's a "remake" or trying to "copy cat" something that was already done. And there in lies the flop I think it will be. If we're going with that idea everybody should just stop making tv shows or movies or whatever cause there is nothing new under the sun. Depending on how you look at it it's all been done before. But though the premise is similar to Malcolm in the Middle ("genius kid with wacky family") that show is already over a decade old - it first aired 17 years ago and finished 11 years ago - so I think after all this time it's okay to give the idea a new spin. It all depends on the execution. Not that I have high hopes for this particular project, mind you, but personally I just don't care much for the "It's been done before!" argument.
