Critic Consensus: Even with a cast of fully-capable comediennes, In the Motherhood is a poorly written version of the web series it was based on.

Not so-bad-it's-good. Just bad. Plain bad. Why am I watching this?-level bad.
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
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.
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.
The show rises to mediocrity on the strength of the occasional snappiness of the dialogue.
