Nick at Nite Orders 3rd Season of Instant Mom; The Simpsons Take the Bowl on FXX Thursday with Marathon

Instant Mom

Nickelodeon has ordered a 20-episode third season of its hit family comedy Instant Mom for Nick at Nite and NickMom. As we mentioned, beginning Oct. 2, season two of Instant Mom will premiere in its new timeslot on Nick at Nite, Thursdays at 8pm (ET/PT). The series also airs during the adult-targeted NickMom nighttime comedy block on the Nick Jr. channel. The multi-camera, scripted half-hour series features Tia Mowry-Hardrict (The Game, Sister Sister) as Stephanie, a former party girl who becomes a full-time stepmom to three kids when she marries the more traditional Charlie (Michael Boatman, Spin City). Stephanie manages to keep it all together using her own unique style, never losing her sense of fun, and with the help of her mother Maggie (Sheryl Lee Ralph, Moesha), she learns what being a mom really means. Rounding out the cast are Charlie's three kids played by Sydney Park (AwesomenessTV), Tylen Jacob Williams and Damarr Calhoun. Instant Mom is executive-produced by Howard Michael Gould, Aaron Kaplan and Regina Hicks.


The Simpsons Take the Bowl

FXX will air a primetime marathon of The Simpsons on Thursday, September 11, from 8:00 pm ET/PT through 12:00 am ET/PT, featuring episodes with music that will be showcased at the world premiere of "The Simpsons Take the Bowl!" at the Hollywood Bowl running from September 12 - September 14.
