CMT's Working Class - New TV Show Premiere Review

CMT's very first scripted sitcom "Working Class" stars TV veteran Melissa Peterman ("Reba") and Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor Ed Asner.

Working Class focuses on Carli Mitchell (Melissa Peterman), a single mom from a rough and tumble background, trying to give her 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.

Premiere Episode: “The Buddy System”

Carli’s old flame from high school shows up hoping to re-ignite his “spark” with Carli — even if it means humiliating her in front of her new boss.

I've been a fan of Melissa Peterman for quite sometime now.  She is hilarious and always makes me laugh.  I love her attitude, witty come-backs and just everything about her.  She is the main reason I was so interested in watching Working Class.

The show is funny, down to earth and totally relatable.  It portrays what so many women are going through and dealing with on a daily basis. 

The Working Class premiere airs on January 28 at 8pm EST/PST, followed by a second, all-new episode at 8:30 pm.
