A mother’s job is never done, and this Mother’s Day, TVLine is putting 20 of today’s most dynamic TV moms under the microscope to see just how good a job they’re doing.
It’s an admittedly wide spectrum of women, from controlling mom-sters like Revenge‘s Victoria Grayson to walking love robots like Parenthood‘s Kristina Braverman — who we’d totally beg to adopt us if she was real, and if we weren’t over 18.
We’d also like to note the diversity in this year’s list, which — in addition to 14 mortal humans — boasts three witches, two cartoons and a werewolf. These ain’t your mama’s mamas.
Browse some of today’s best and worst TV moms below, then drop a comment: Which ones do you love — and which ones do you love to hate? (And they don’t have to be from our list. We know there are many, many more!)
