Happy Mother's Day, TV Fanatics!

While we're sure everyone out there loves his or her parents, let's be honest: it would be sort of awesome if one of these fictional women helped raise you, right? It's time to pay tribute to the small screen's best moms...

1. Tami Taylor

Tami Taylor
As the coach's wife, Tami Taylor always had the right advice for the students of East Dillon. And she always has a glass of wine in her hand as well.

2. Clair Huxtable

Clair Huxtable
THE BEST TV MOM EVER! Clair Huxtable takes the title! Seriously, anyone care to disagree?

3. Marge Simpson

Marge Simpson
Sure, she's a cartoon and her kids never get any older, but she's still one of the best moms on TV. Just think of all she has to put up with at home.

4. Emma Swan

Emma Swan
It took awhile for Emma to believe she was a mother. But she's been nothing but protective of Henry ever since.

5. Leslie Knope

Leslie Knope
Parks and Rec's Leslie Knope balances family AND work and we love her for it. Her kids will have the best science projects ever.

6. Temperance Brennan

Temperance Brennan
Make no Bones about it! Temperance Brennan deserves a spot on this list! (See what we did there?)

Cristina and Claire the best...


Cersei Lannister is the worst mother of all.


I think lots of the old TV moms would have rated well, too.


Where's Regina? Emma's been a mother for the past 2+years, but Regina's been Henry's mother practically since his birth. Plus this is one mother that would move heaven and earth for her kid.

@ Dacaria

my thoughts exactly. Its sad to see Regina being overshadowed by Emma everywhere :/ I mean she changed from being the Evil Queen to a true hero just for the sake of her son. Now that's a super mom!
