The Mommies

Show Summary

The show is based around the act of stand-up comedians Kentz and Kristensen, a duo from California who discuss the joys and headaches of motherhood. In this show, they play neighbors and long-time friends. In the second season of the show, the title changed from "The Mommies" to just "Mommies" to reflect the shift in focus from the two main characters to four neighborhood mommies. Ashley Peldon received a nomination for Best Young Actress at the 1991 Daytime Emmy Awards for her role on The Mommies.

  • Being in a household cleaner ad doesn't make someone a celebrity or a TV star . . .

    but, apparently the slack-jawwed hireups who allowed these women to stay on NBC for 2 years obviously thought so.

    This show not only made a fool of it's viewers for watching, but a mockery of the role of being a stay at home Mom. I vaguely remember this show, but what I do remember is seeing fat, slovenly Mothers sitting around the house griping about everything they hated about Motherhood. When Roseanne did it- at least it was original. These two reminded me of 2 hens in the henhouse. A complete and total waste of time this show was. Good riddance to bad TV.moreless
  • Went downhill in season 2

    I really enjoyed this show when it first premiered. Caryl and Marilyn brought their stand-up act to tv and I thought it worked really well the first season. They had realistic marriages and kids and it was a good show. Then in season 2 one of the husbands was re-cast, another disappeared althogether and the kids took a back seat to new additions Julia Duffy (who was good) and Jere Burns (who was not). I don't understand why these decisions are made but it's usually the kiss of death for shows and it was in this instance.moreless
