Series Description:
This sitcom follows Reba Hart (Reba McEntire), a sharp-witted, smart and single mom living in a Houston suburb. Her dentist ex-husband Brock (Christopher Rich) left her to marry a flaky dental hygienist named Barbra Jean Booker (Melissa Peterman) who bizarrely believes Reba is her best friend.

Reba must also deal with teen daughters Cheyenne (Joanna Garcia) and Kyra (Scarlett Pomers), son Jake (Mitch Holleman), and Cheyenne’s dim-witted boyfriend Van Montgomery (Steve Howey).

Behind the Scenes

space
Though the series was the highest-rated sitcom on CW, the network felt that it didn’t fit their desired demographic. The final episode was produced prior to the cancellation notice and was designed to give some closure just in case it became the series’ last.

In the May 30, 2007 issue of Variety, 20th Century Fox TV president Gary Newman lamented that the series wasn’t allowed to reach its potential. He said, “The WB didn’t really know how to communicate with advertisers or expand their audience to make it work. I’m convinced that it could have been a big hit on CBS or ABC.”

Reba’s show helped a lot of families relate to things that were going on in their own crazy world. Her character showed how to be gracious, strict, loving and how to survive. It is a show the whole family could sit down and watch, laugh and maybe help to get a little insight into their own crazy world. It showed kids that families change but that doesn’t mean the parents don’t love them just as much as they always have. I wish they would bring Reba back. It helped so many people more than the rating could ever show.
