Rita Rocks

Multi-cam dom-com featuring Nicole Sullivan of MADtv and Kim Possible fame. Sullivan plays the titular Rita, a harried but Happily Married mother who finds a creative outlet in a garage band with her neighbor, her best friend, and her daughter's boyfriend (yeah, that's kind of weird).

While far from groundbreaking, the show is cheerful and watchable and hearkens back to the golden age of 80's multi-cam sitcoms. The show's working mom/garage rocker concept is presumably what sold it, but few episodes actually hinge off this premise.

Started off strong in the first season, but ratings dropped in the second. They began running two episodes at a time, and finally canceled it in Jan, 2010. Future generations take note, this show existed and it wasn't terrible.
