Mother Superior

Slide 1 of 9

An all-out face-off for TV-mom supremacy By Larry Carroll Special to MSN TV There was a time when people would grow up with one mother, maybe two. But during the past several decades, our families have grown to include the maternal influence of June Cleaver, Marge Simpson, Peggy Bundy and a dozen others. Don't believe me? Just try to play ball in the house without being haunted by the ominous warnings of Mrs. Brady. Now, with Mother's Day once again upon us, the time has come to put our new-school TV moms in their proper places. From "Gossip Girl" to "Galactica," real housewives to fictional ones, what follows are eight battles to decide Mother Superior, followed by a bonus showdown between two monumental matriarchs.
