• Nickelodeon to launch comedy programming dedicated to mothers

    Anchored by the re-launched NickMom.com and a 26-episode stand-up comedy series that spans four cities, Nickelodeon will debut a 4-hour block of comedy programming on Oct. 1, set to air on their Nick Jr channel. NickMom Night Out will feature stand-up showcases hosted by the likes of Tisha Campbell-Martin in Los Angeles, Judy Gold in New York City, Caroline Rhea (pictured above) in Orlando and Bonnie McFarlane in Chicago.

    Other shows included in Nick’s new programming include Parental Discretion with Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, a variety show that will incorporate sketch comedy, field pieces and more; MFF: Mom Friends Forever, a documentary series featuring longtime friends Judi Diamond and Kate Frisina-White and perhaps the most intriguing, What Was Carol Brady Thinking?, which boasts graphics on top of the original Brady Bunch series, wherein we’ll be able to peek inside the mind of one of the most famous television moms. Basically, it’s Pop-Up Video: The Brady Bunch edition.

    Comedian Andrea Rosen has also inked a deal with NickMom, wherein she’ll co-executive produce and host a show called My 63 Moms. The documentary-type series will center around Rosen learning from families and sharing her own experiences as a new mother. My 63 Moms will run for 13 episodes sometime next year.
