A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this comedy series is lighthearted and funny, but contains some superficial discussions of mature topics like dating, multiple marriages, and divorce. It also contains some mild sexual discussions. Drinking (wine, beer, hard liquor) is often mentioned and sometimes visible. That said, the show is pretty mild when compared to other television comedies.

What's the story?
WORKING CLASS, CMT’s first scripted comedy series, stars Melissa Peterman as Carli Mitchell, a divorced single mother with a wild past who moves her kids to an upscale suburb to give them a better life. When she’s not at home with teenagers Scott (Lachlan Buchanan) and Pam (Courtney Merritt), and young son Will (Cameron Castaneda), she works at a local grocery store with co-worker Hank Greziak (Ed Asner) and her handsome boss Rob Parker (Patrick Fabian). Carli’s adult brother, the party-loving Nick Garrett (Steve Kazee), also makes her life interesting. Making ends meet isn’t easy, but she manages with lots of hard work and her unique working class flair.
Is it any good?
The series offers a lighthearted look at single motherhood, family, and friendship. It also revolves around the cultural differences people from lower economic and/or social levels experience when they move into more upscale neighborhoods.
It’s pretty mild, but the brief references to bad marriages, divorce, dating, drinking, and other adult-related topics, though handled very superficially, may be too mature for younger viewers. That being said, the show contains lots of funny moments that make the series an entertaining viewing choice.
