CMT Premiers a new series called "Working Class"



On Friday, January 28th, CMT will premier a new series called Working Class with Melissa Peterman from "Reba".


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.

WORKING CLASS premieres January 28 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT on CMT.

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.


MY TAKE:
I thought this episode was very good! It looks like it will be a very good series too! I giggled and caught myself looking forward to the next episode. Sadly, I don't have CMT, so I can't watch the next episode...but if I DID have CMT...I would make a point to see it! That is THE ONLY downfall of this series is that it is only on CMT. Otherwise, I can't say that I disliked any of it. Carli is a fun loving character to watch, and her brother is even more fun to watch! He is a bit irresponsible, but still "the brother". You can't fire family! :-) I also found the episode to be family friendly. I would have no trouble allowing my entire family to watch it.
Honestly, I was never a huge fan of Melissa Peterman...but she is...different in this. I really enjoyed watching her. And even more enjoyable are the list of guests who will be visiting, Reba among them!
I was starting to wonder where all the good comedy went. I get tired of watching what seems like the same thing over and over again. This is a different series, and family friendly. I truly enjoyed it and I think that most of my readers would too! Be sure to catch it on CMT at 7pm central time! I really don't think you will be sorry!
