"Some of the most memorable TV moms somehow always managed to get everything done with ease. How, exactly, did Carol Brady keep up with that whole bunch? To be fair, she had a lot of help from Alice, but still...it's not easy. And yes, not all of the favorite TV mothers on this list are as capable as Shirley Partridge ('The Partridge Family'), or as kind and nurturing as Caroline Ingalls ('Little House on the Prairie'). No, there are hot messes here too, including Peggy Bundy ('Married...With Children'). She might not be perfect, but she definitely loves her (totally messed up) kiddos. Claire Dunphy ('Modern Family'), for all her crazy, is actually a pretty awesome, fun mom to have."
