Is NickMom Just What Your Therapist Ordered?Meredith Carroll
I don’t know about you, but ever since becoming a mom I’ve been fascinated by other moms. Particularly the ones portrayed on TV.
The June Cleavers, the Elyse Keatons, the Peggy Bundys. How they handle kids, how they handle their marriages, how they handle their homes, how they handle (heaven forbid!) sex — I watch them like they’re animals in the zoo. We don’t speak the same language, but we often still manage to have the same experiences.
Very few people seem to understand that. Until now.
Nickelodeon seems to get it. Which is why they’ve launched a new programming block called NickMom, so women like me can live vicariously through, laugh at or spew venom at other moms from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. nightly. It doesn’t look like your mother’s block of TV programming. Which is why most of us might actually like it.
And you can check out NickMom on TV. Just what the doctor ordered. That, and a glass of wine. And the kids in bed — asleep.
