      Season 1 – In the Motherhood

      2009 Comedy List
      16% 19 Reviews Tomatometer Often married but currently single, Rosemary is a free spirit whose nontraditional parenting style somehow has produced a son who is stable and responsible. Her recently divorced best friend, Jane, relies heavily on her kooky "manny," Horatio, to help raise her adolescent daughter, Annie, and baby, Sophie, now that Jane has returned to work. Emily, on the other hand, is an overachieving full-time mom whose home is a work of art and whose husband, Jason, is a selfless, sensitive New Age guy who wants his family to have, and be, the best.

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Even with a cast of fully-capable comediennes, In the Motherhood is a poorly written version of the web series it was based on.

      Previous Ed Bark Uncle Barky Utterly without style or any relatability, In the Motherhood is about as funny as bleeding gums. D- Sep 24, 2019 Full Review Alan Sepinwall Newark Star-Ledger Not so-bad-it's-good. Just bad. Plain bad. Why am I watching this?-level bad. Jan 31, 2014 Full Review Glenn Garvin Miami Herald The tedium and unoriginality of this new ABC sitcom, the latest entry in the vastly overworked motherhood-as-martyrdom genre, has to be seen to be believed, though my strong and sincere suggestion is that you just take my word for it Jan 31, 2014 Full Review Megan Basham WORLD If ABC wants In the Motherhood to resonate with moms, its writers should spend more time telling stories that reflect moms' actual lives and less time pitting one motherly stereotype against another. Oct 10, 2018 Full Review Dustin Rowles Pajiba It feels like a show that should have a laugh track, and without it, it's hard to know where to fake laugh. The humor is forced, the pilot's storyline is trite and predictable, and the cast is completely wasted on bad material. Jun 14, 2018 Full Review Emily Ashby Common Sense Media This series reaps the benefits of good writing and a strong cast. 3/5 Jan 31, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews Next
