TV show description:      
This sitcom revolves around the humorous daily events in the lives of three “typical” moms; Rosemary, Jane, and Emily.

Rosemary (Megan Mullally) has been married too many times to mention, but is single for the moment. Her teen-aged son, Syd (Ryan Pinkston), is more responsible than his freewheeling mother and tries to keep her on track.

Jane (Cheryl Hines) is the recently-divorced best friend of Rosemary, and a mother of two girls — pre-teen Annie (Charlotte Foley) and eight month old Sophie. Jane tries to be a woman who has it all with both a family and a career. She’s hired a “manny” named Horatio (Horatio Sanz) to help out around the house. He communicates with little Sophie via sign language and feels she’s the only one who truly understands him.

Emily (Jessica St. Clair) is Jane’s younger sister. She’s a stay-at-home mom of two kids, Esther and Bill. Emily is a perfectionist and takes her parenting duties very seriously. She runs an immaculate home, and her kids are always well-mannered. She’s married to Jason (RonReaco Lee), who likes organic food and wants everything in his life to be perfect.

This show is loosely based on a web series that was combined with promotions for Suave haircare products and Sprint Nextel. The stars of the web series are Leah Remini, Jenny McCarthy, and Chelsea Handler.

Series Finale:     
Episode seven — In Sickness and In Health
Jane wants to prove to her boss that she’s still a great employee and that motherhood isn’t getting in the way of her work. That means doing everything she can to hide the fact that she has the flu when an important project deadline is given to her.

Meanwhile, a jealous Rosemary makes Horatio choose between being friends exclusively with her or a fellow nanny. Emily’s usually stoic husband, Jason, becomes like her third child when he comes down with the flu.
