Episode Synopsis: Patricia Heaton stars as Frankie Heck, a dedicated wife and mother who juggles work, family and life in an everyday, average American town. Frankie and Mike (Neil Flynn) are both working parents desperately trying on a daily basis to discipline their teenage son, Axl (Charlie McDermott), support their untalented-yet-severely-optimistic daughter, Sue (Eden Sher), and attend parent-teacher meetings to discuss their oddball youngest son, Brick (Atticus Shaffer). Life may seem average in the middle of America but it's anything but for Frankie Heck and her family. "The Middle" premieres WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 (8:30-9:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
