'Chrisley Knows Best' Premiere: One Crazy Dad

On 'Chrisley Know Best,' we met the Chrisley family, and all of Todd Chrisley's rules for them. It turns out he's pretty controlling. From discussing his awkward rules on ... uh ... sizing to spying on his family.

Still, the show really got viewers' attention, landing in the top 10 Google Trends searches after it aired. As of Tuesday AM, the show was searched over 100,000 times. It was also trending on Twitter.

So, what else happened on the wild premiere?

Todd put tracking devices on his kids' cars, monitored all their computer traffic, read all of their text messages and even threw his son's laptop into the pool as punishment.

In fact, E! dubbed Todd 'TV's craziest dad.'

'Colorful is one way to describe him. Todd is a self-made millionaire who strives for perfection in all areas of his life, especially with his children. But while some people may see what he says as harsh, there's usually a certain honesty there.'

The New Jersey Star-Ledger, on the other hand, isn't sold on the show just yet.

'At premiere's end, 'Chrisley Knows Best' comes off as a quaint glimpse into the life of a rich family that has growing pains of its own. But there's really not much conflict yet to make this show all that compelling.'
