Years ago, I watched a show called "Oliver Beene". It was something like 'Malcolm' meets 'The Wonder Years', and was pretty funny. Unfortunatelly the show was cancelled after 24 episodes.
There's still the question, how unique was and is Malcolm? For some possible forerunners/sources of inspiration which, for instance, had the leading teen characters comment on the action to the audience, see three threads in the Reese Apartment's forum. Please comment and watch clips.
The Wonder Years
Clarissa Explains It All and Bailey Kipper's P.O.V.
Parker Lewis Can't Win and The Adventures Of Pete & Pete

There's a new FOX show I'm rooting for called Raising Hope that premieres on Tuesday, September 21st. It has a real MITM vibe to it with the setting, quirky characters and offbeat humor. There's also a lot of heart in it too, something I loved about MITM. Cloris Leachman (Grandma Ida) stars in this new show as well. One more reason for MITM fans to check it out this fall.
Here's the trailer:
