Meet TV’s New Moms

For the past few years, it seems like all the major networks have been playing with the wacky-family formula to try to find the right mix for the next Modern Family. A dash of parental dysfunction here; a splash of kid snark there. This season, the main ingredient seems to be single moms. There’s at least one new series with a single-mom character in the lead on most channels this fall. Check out a few of the shows:


Ben and Kate


Malibu Country


How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)


The New Normal


Not to worry, Dads! There’s also a show for you….

Guys With Kids


What do you think? Are any of these shows must-see TV?

    I don’t think most of them stand a chance, but guys with kids looks well worth watching. Single moms are becoming a far overused and for many people painful thing to be reminded of, but watching dads struggle through day to day parental responsibilities is not only hysterical, but usually shows a very blunt, realistic reaction to some of the strange things we find ourselves doing with our kids.

    Oh! I just saw a preview for another dad-oriented show called “Baby Daddy” on ABC Family.
