I love Melissa Peterman!

You know the funniest part of the show Reba?  Barbara Jean, right?  Who could resist that funny, funny woman.  Well, her name is really Melissa Peterman and I happen to think she's one of the funniest women around.  She's been hosting CMT's The Singing Bee but now she's got her own half hour comedy! 

Country Music Television (CMT) is premiering their very first scripted sitcom "Working Class"starring TV veteran Melissa Peterman ("Reba") and Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor Ed Asner on January 28 at 8pm EST/PST, followed by a second, all-new episode at 8:30pm.
"Working Class" follows Carli Mitchell (Melissa Peterman), a single mom from a rough and tumble background, trying to give her three kids a better life by moving them to an upscale suburb.  She quickly finds that making the transition to “the good life” is harder than she thought.
She's unwittingly befriended by her cranky neighbor, Hank (Ed Asner), her only “career” prospect is a glorified deli job at the local grocery store, and the man she falls for not only already has a girlfriend – but he’s also her boss, Rob (Patrick Fabian). With her ladies-man brother, Nick (Steve Kazee), to help her out (when he’s not acting like one of the kids himself), Carli faces the challenges of parenting, dating, and making friends in her new community by doing more with less, staying true to herself and approaching each day with a touch of working class.

I watched the first episode, compliments of CMT and because I'm a part of One2One Network and I get great opportunities like this!  I really liked the show.  It set itself up to have some terrific ways it could flow.  I can't wait to see the relationship she develops with Ed Asner, not to mention it's just great to see him anyway!

I like the guy who plays her boss, who she hits on in this first episode!  I can't wait to see what happens next!  That he has the cute little perfect girlfriend leaves so many great ways to play that angle.  Carli's brother will keep her life pretty exciting as well.  I can't wait to see where Carli goes in her new job and her new life.  I hope you will turn in and see how Carli's life takes off in a whole new way!

I mean, I am looking for any reason to have a little "me time" and withdraw from my own life.  I feel like Carli is in the same boat I am.  Just trying to get by and make a life for herself.  We have that in common.
