TV show description:      
Reba MacKenzie (Reba McEntire) is married to country music star Bobby Gallagher (Jeffrey Nordling) in Nashville. Her life is turned upside down when he’s caught cheating. He arrogantly expects Reba to “stand by her man” at a press conference but instead she announces to the world that he’s a moron and they’re through.

Reba decides to leave her old life behind and moves her family to the beaches of Malibu in sunny California. It turned out that her ex-husband had a secret home there and it’s one of the few things that she got in the divorce.

The family’s California adventure starts with a bang when they meet next door neighbor Kim Sallinger (Sara Rue) — a rich, buxom, blonde and bubbly housewife.

Reba’s daughter June (Juliette Angelo) practices kissing with Kim’s step-son, Sage (Hudson Thames), who claims that he’s gay. Son Cash (Justin Prentice) deals with going from being a prince in Nashville to a pauper in Malibu. Reba’s mother, Lillie Mae (Lily Tomlin) discovers all the adventures she can have in California as a woman freed from expectations.

Years earlier, Reba gave up her own singing career to raise her two kids. Now, she’s bent on starting where she left off — in spite of the stonewalling from her music producer’s assistant, Geoffrey (Jai Rodriguez). He’s been working for Mister Bata for several years, but despite all his hard work, Mister Bata still doesn’t know his name.

Series Finale:     
Episode #18 — All You Single Ladies
Kim, Geoffrey and Lillie Mae are afraid that Reba’s social life is in a rut, so they sign her up for a dating website. He’s older than she expected, and he’s rude to boot. He offends Reba but Lillie Mae likes him and ends up taking him home.

Cash wants to try online dating, but ages up his photo so he can meet college girls. Unfortunately, he ends up connecting with a woman who aged down her photo. They quickly realize what happened, but she makes him stay, and ends up telling him her life story.

Lillie Mae and her new beau tell Reba she’s too uptight. Reba goes to a new trapeze place with them to prove she’s not boring. She bails at the last minute, but she ends up getting a date with the cute guy that works there.
First aired: March 22, 2013.

    Reba McEntire is fabulous – love watching her laugh! Hope this show comes back. Absolutely love the former “Reba” TV show and watch the reruns every day.

    Where are the comedy shows? Every time, we have a good one, they cancel it. This show was very good and real funny. Reba et Lily are so good together. In this fast, crazy world, we need to stop, laugh and relax. No explosions, guns, scandals, profanity, etc.

  3. Ted Phillips says

    Keep Malibu Country by all means. It is one of the shows that shows moral values, just like the Reba series did. Reba is a good example for all families to follow.

  4. Ted Phillips says

    I love to watch Reba in anything she does. There just aren’t any good shows that air without nudity and profanity. Her show Reba and Malibu Country are just two examples of what American Families need more of.

    Thanks: Reba

  6. RON STORY says

    I HONESTLY THINK ITS WORTH KEEPING ON THE AIR.. ITS A FRESH AIR TO ALL OF THE CRIME AND VIOLENCE WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH.. WE NEED MORE COMEDY SHOWS LIKE MALIBU COUNTRY, AND I WAS A BIG FAN OF THE OLD REBA SHOW JUST WISH THEY HAD SOME SURPRISE APPEARANCES FROM THE OLD CAST IT WOULD BE FUNNY TOO KEEP IT ON THE AIR ITS DOING GREAT

    please keep Malibu Country on the air. This is a show I can watch with my teenagers. We
    don’t see much family entertainment TV anymore. Most of it isn’t suitable to watch with your children. I’ve really enjoyed.

    I would like to see the show go in a different direction for a better viewing. The family situations was done in her previous great show of Reba for 6 years.
    It would be great to spend more time with situations ‘behind the music scene – making music attempting to launch her career’ at the office with guest stars in and out.
    Lily Tomlin and Jai Rodriguez is a good addition to her shows characters but the episodes need a better story line to improve the ratings!

  9. Sharon in Jasper says

    I love Malibu Country! The cast couldn’t be better. Reba is awesome, and Lilly Tomlin is histerical as her mother!!!! The guest appearances have been great, from Stacey Keach to Blake Shelton. “THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!!!”

    Malibu country and last man standing are worth saving, too many good shows are canceled because of bad ratings.
    If this keeps happening people are going to go out to the movies or watch more digital video disc.
    PLEASE DON’T CANCEL THESE TWO SHOWS.
    Thank you for taking the time to read this comment.

    What is wrong with this country when good shows fade away and the bad shows remain.
    PLEASE keep Last man standing and Malibu country on the air.
    Pan am was a show that should have stayed on the air.
