Mothers raise us, they dote on us and sometimes they even manage to not embarrass us in public.
When you’re done honoring the mothers in your own life today, here are some TV moms you can spend time with this Mother’s Day.
‘The Golden Girls’
They traveled down the road and back again as roommates, friends and mothers. Episodes include Blanche, Rose and Dorothy in motherhood roles and, of course, the snarkiest mother of them all: Sophia. (started at 1 and runs until 11 a.m. on Hallmark; 5 to 11:30 p.m. on TV Land; 8 to 10 p.m. on Logo)
‘Giuliana & Bill’
After fertility struggles, the reality TV couple’s baby arrives in this marathon. (6 a.m. to noon on Style)
‘How I Met Your Mother’
Narrator Ted’s titular lady love isn’t the only mother in this series. This group of episodes features the core characters’ mothers while leading up to the birth of Lily and Marshall’s baby. (7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on FX )
‘Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?’
After spending a little time with Joan Rivers, you might be hard-pressed to name a more outrageous mother on television. (10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on WeTV)
The so-called Domestic Goddess was known for some wild antics during the comedy series’ run, but she also seemed like a pretty cool mom. (12:24 to 5 p.m. on TV Land; noon to 6 p.m. on Logo)
To see perhaps one of the most iconic mother-daughter relationships in recent TV history, take a trip to Stars Hollow with Lorelai and Rory. (2 to 5 p.m. on SoapNet)
