Tv Season Info

This comedy series is based on the novel "Momzillas" by Jill Kargman, who also stars on the show as the main character. Jill Weber, a fictional version of Kargman herself, is a stay-at-home mother of three, married to Andy Weber (Andy Buckley), a wealthy member of an important Upper East Side family. Jill has to navigate life as a socialite and as a member of a snobbish mommy clique that she doesn't really feel a part of. Watching her every move are Lex (Sean Kleier) and Brooke Von-Weber (Abby Elliott), her in-laws. The only one keeping her sane and with feet on the ground is her friend Vanessa (K. K. Glick). Season 1 follows Jill as she deals with the search for the right kindergarten, royal ancestors and a birth.

Critic Reviews for Odd Mom Out Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (11)

Besides being pretty funny, Odd Mom Out might represent the weirdest programming decision on television this summer.

There's substance in Jill with hubby Andy and with her doctor best friend... all proving levelheaded and likable. That helps leaven the snooty stereotypes of our initial path into Jill's world.

Odd Mom Out is full of moments that are oddly off. A show that's all about acceptance and rejection should have tried harder to make a better first impression.

Whereas Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce understood that Housewives viewers cared about drama more complex than two women spitting insults at each other, Odd Mom Out seems to think there's nothing worth exploring more than that.

The series, a half-hour comedy, is helped by the presence of Jill Kargman, who co-created the show (based on her book "Momzillas") and also stars.

Jun 12, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Odd Mom Out is uneven but ultimately likable, and Kargman and Buckley have a nice chemistry as husband and wife.

Jun 9, 2015 | Full Review…

Odd Mom Out sparks a few genuine laughs. It just doesn't offer much else.

Jun 17, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Fun scripted satire of NYC wealthy skewers stereotypes.

Jun 16, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This heightened, snarkily fictionalized version of Odd Mom Out star-creator Jill Kargman is a hoot in Bravo's sitcom send-up of the Real Housewives lifestyle of the rich and insufferable.

Jun 15, 2015 | Full Review…

The amusing Odd Mom Out is a sweet, frothy surprise.

    Who ever said you can only have one comedy soul mate? I love Odd Mom Out and Broad City and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Veep.

    I lived in NY for 7 years and really loved Gossip Girl for it's high class elitism and the amount of times a shot of a famous hotel or high end apartment building or neighborhood was shot. So, I tried Odd Mom Out- basically a grown- up version of Gossip Girl where everyone has kids. Right? Erm... not exactly... NY is merely a prop in the background of a low- intensity show that vaguely captures a woman on the outskirts of her social circle. She isn't trying to get "in." But she is trying to get "in" because her life is more convenient if she plays up that rich factor. Jill Weber (Jill Kargman) is a stay at home mom who seems pulled in many directions of where she wants her life to take her. Her husband comes from a wealthy family while he is a ho- hum law firm partner and can't afford the buy- in. In an ironic twist, if Jill actually accepted her fate that she is part of a family of stuffy, over- pretentious wealthy people and actually did try to fit in with them, her life would give her all the things that she wanted. She makes things a million times difficult by being judgmental of the people around her but then wanting what they have. I guess when I read the description of the show, I was hoping for an older Jenny Humphrey (Gossip Girl). Someone strong enough to not want to be anything like the rich bitties around her but was willing to put in the effort to actually get what she wants without compromising her character. So beyond the hypocrisies of the show and the fact that New York, arguably the greatest city in the world, is put on the back burner, the show is just ok. It's good for cheap laughs and there are some relatable points for stay at home mothers that have a hard time making friends.

    Absolutely love it. I'm neither a mother nor a New Yorker but this show is smart, silly, and totally cracks me up. Jill is hilarious!

    I like this show! The first episode turned me off to it a little bit, not sure why. It took me a couple of episodes to warm up to the characters and fully grasp the show's concept and character roles, but now, I love it. I'm all caught up and I'm ready for this week's episode.
