Series` info and plot

American Housewife is a new sitcom that was launched by ABC on October 11, 2016. Created and executive by Sarah Dunn with co-executive producing effort from Aaron Kaplan, Kenny Schwartz, Ruben Fleischer and Rick Wiener, the show hails from Kapital Entertainment, Eight Sisters, Weiner and Schwartz and ABC Studios.

Westport, Connecticut is a wealthy town full of privileged families with perfect kids. How do you survive being normal, which equals flawed, in a setting that requires so much of you? Well, it is exhausting for one, and Katie Otto (Katy Mixon) knows it better than anyone else. Her husband Greg (Diedrich Bader), three kids Taylor (Meg Donnelly), Oliver (Daniel DiMaggio), and Anna-Kat (Julia Butters), their school and other activities, as well as trying to stay socially adequate and on par with the neighbors drain her completely.

Mixed reception, ratings and renewal prospects

While Katy Mixon`s performance is universally praised, the rest of the show has received mixed reviews and is criticized for its heavy reliance on stereotypes. The premiere episode drew 6.6 million same day viewers, and earned a 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demo and a share of 7. By episode 4 the viewership went down to 5.1 million with a demo rating of 1.5 and a share of 5. The review aggregator websites are unanimous in their scores – all of them are average, 6.9/10 on IMDb, 60% on Metacritic and 54% on Rotten Tomatoes. The humor and absurdity of life in the suburbs offers a lot of opportunities for a potentially excellent show, so perhaps, if the American Housewife gets another chance from the network, it will take the criticism into account, and develop into something stronger. Stay tuned, and we will let you know when ABC makes a decision on the series` future.
