Tv Season Info

Suburban life as a mother of two is hardly what Rita ( Nicole Sullivan ) imagined for herself in her younger years as a musician, so she reignites her passion and starts a garage band with her neighbor, adding yet another activity to her already hectic schedule, and giving her two daughters something new to make fun of.

Critic Reviews for Rita Rocks: Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Sullivan tries awfully hard to make a go of Rita Rocks in times when the once dominant sitcom genre is gasping for air time on both broadcast and cable networks. Gasp, no wonder.

[Nicole Sullivan] is underserved by the material, and she works too hard to make it seem funny.

We can forgive [Sullivan] this seeming incongruity because she's so darn funny in whatever she does.

It looks and sounds a lot like a lot of really bad broadcast network sitcoms.

Rita Rocks' subject matter certainly isn't groundbreaking, but it's still a highly enjoyable comedy about the implications of being a responsible adult.

I can't help but root for a mom trying to carve out a little time in a busy suburban life to feed her own muse.
