American Housewife (2016-?)
A family comedy narrated by Katie, a strong-willed mother, raising her flawed family in a wealthy town filled with perfect wives and their perfect offspring.
I know how crazy this sounds, but this was my most anticipated new show. A plus size woman, firmly middle class, living in a very affluent neighborhood surrounded by Stepford wives. That’s not quiet my life, but it feels like it sometimes. I have to force myself to take my daughter to story time because I swear the children there are little pod children. They’re the same age she is but the can all sit there, quietly, unmoving for almost half an hour. I comfort myself with the fact that my child has personality and is clearly amazing, but the looks the other women give me can be annoying. Pregnancy hormones don’t help either.
American Housewife ended up focusing more on the plus size thing than I was hoping for, but from what I’ve read the next episode isn’t like that so I’ve got hope. Katy Mixon and Diedrich Bader had good chemistry and I liked their report, I’m looking forward to the rest of the season.
