What do you remember about the show?

Murphy Brown was a single mom, and it was a big deal at the time, but that was the early 90s.

Thanks, that's a good guess! :) But the one I'm thinking of was younger, had darker hair, and was far more clueless/goofy. Also, I don't think the show was nearly as famous as Murphy Brown.

The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd?

That one does seem to match a lot of what I know about the show, though it's not the actress or style I remembered. Almost makes me wonder if I could be conflating parts of this show with an actress from another... Except, I'm pretty sure the show I had in mind was more modern: around the time of Spin City and Ally Mc Beal, i.e. late 90s. Also more comedy than drama, IIRC.

How about "Oh Baby" with Cynthia Stevenson?

Wow, yes, that's exactly the one!!!

Looks like my memory wasn't entirely off either, on most counts. I wonder what the sequences looked like where should would break the 4th wall, but can't find any clips from the show. Looks like in general there's hardly any information about it online.

Can't imagine how you even managed to find it. :) That's awesome - thank you so much!
