Critic Reviews for In the Motherhood: Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (15)

Not so-bad-it's-good. Just bad. Plain bad. Why am I watching this?-level bad.

January 31, 2014 | Full Review…

The tedium and unoriginality of this new ABC sitcom, the latest entry in the vastly overworked motherhood-as-martyrdom genre, has to be seen to be believed, though my strong and sincere suggestion is that you just take my word for it

January 31, 2014 | Full Review…

It's stunning that ABC's new sitcom In the Motherhood, built on stories of life as Mom, manages to come off as stiff, disjointed and curiously unlikable.

January 31, 2014 | Full Review…

To stand out from the pablum of domestic sitcoms, the series needs to lose the working-mom cliches and be more willing to be mean.

January 31, 2014 | Full Review…

The show rises to mediocrity on the strength of the occasional snappiness of the dialogue.

Top Critic

If ABC wants In the Motherhood to resonate with moms, its writers should spend more time telling stories that reflect moms' actual lives and less time pitting one motherly stereotype against another.
