Raising Miranda is an American sitcom that aired on CBS in 1988 as part of its fall lineup.


Raising Miranda is the story of Donald Marshack (James Naughton), a Racine, Wisconsin contractor who suddenly found himself a single parent when his wife Bonnie had abandoned him and their 15-year-old daughter, Miranda (Royana Black), in order to go and "find herself". Despite this rather grim premise, the show was billed as a situation comedy, the humor being derived from undomestic Donald now being forced to serve as both father and mother to a teenage girl. Bryan Cranston played Donald's brother-in-law, Russell.

Audiences apparently found the premise a little too grim and the program lasted only two months.
