Working Class: My Melissa Peterman Photo Shoot

working-class-tv
Tonight at 8pm EST/7pm CST you can watch the premiere of Working Class on CMT. As a Blissdom attendee, I got a special sneak peak of this new series.

Now they didn’t ask me to blog about it, but there were a couple things I wanted to share:
1. I’m glad people in TV land are still creating scripted comedy. Not that I don’t love me some reality tv, but I appreciate the fact that someone out there is still creating old fashioned half hour shows.

2. The show is centered around a single, working mother. While I may not agree with everything the show says or is about, again, it’s refreshing to see a modern day show that doesn’t try to make me feel like my life sucks and that I need to lose 20 pounds. Enough said.

3. After seeing just one show, I can’t yet say it’s as funny as her previous show, Reba, but it does have promise and also stars one of my favorite former characters, “Pastor YummyPants!”

4. Most importantly: Melissa Peterman has to be one of the funniest females out there today while at the same time being down to earth and relatable. From before even taking the stage, she took pics with us and cracked me up with her quick wit. Just take a look at our photo progression:

At her request, "Bad Driver's License picture"
Melissa-Peterman-Sami-Cone-thinker
At my request, "Deep in Thought"

To sum up, I have to give big street props to ANY performer who actually shows up to an event at 10pm at a women’s blogging conference (seriously, can you imagine what that call from her agent must have been like?”

So give it a shot and let me know what you think. And thanks, Melissa, for reminding us that we all have bad days, but it’s the sum of our life that truly counts!
