TV moms are what make us sit through some of these ridiculous TV shows. We do have to admit that the moms are what hold the show together sometimes. How could these big crazy families survive without their stable matriarchs?

We even wonder how these TV moms keep up with so much drama! Someone's kids or husbands are always misbehaving, and it's the moms that have to put up with it.
