TV show description:      
This sitcom revolves around a pair of single moms who are best friends and former high school nerds. The moms have given the girls everything they’ve asked for and everything they never had: clothes, money and self-esteem. The unintended consequence is that they have created two mean girls just like the ones who tortured them years ago.

Annie Watson (Jaime Pressly) was raised in an ultra-strict, uber-religious household where she had little-to-no freedom. As a result, she pretty much allows her daughter Sophie (Kristi Lauren) to do as she pleases.

Annie’s ex-husband Matt (Eric Sheffer Stevens) wants to be a good parent, but doesn’t know what that even means. Matt’s brother is Jack (Kevin Rahm), a father figure to Sophie whose meddling would annoy Annie more if she didn’t have such a crush on him.

Nikki Miller (Katie Finneran) is Annie’s best friend and a woman who was once an unpopular, overweight social pariah. She’s now a pretty Southern belle who also allows her daughter MaKenzie (Aisha Dee) to do whatever she wants.

Gary (Chad L. Coleman) is Nikki’s ex-husband who tries to help raise his challenging daughter, but the couple’s complicated relationship often makes his involvement more difficult.

As their daughters begin to experience their first high school dances and other life-changing teen events, Annie and Nikki are often reminded of their own tortured adolescent years. But when Sophie and Mackenzie’s mean-girl antics cross the line, the moms quickly realize that they must, for the first time, dole out some real punishment and fix what is broken.

    I thought this show was terrible, it was poorly written. I thought the way that the teenagers behaved and spoke to their parents was horrible. I would never let my kids watch this show.
