"Here's the story
Of two lovely ladies ..."
Doesn't take long before ABC Family's The Fosters dispels one of its two moms' worries that if they keep adding kids to their already crowded household, "It's going to be like The Brady Bunch around here." Well, maybe if Carol had married Alice and Alice was an African-American private-school vice principal and Carol was a cop and the kids were a blended multi-racial rainbow of diversity. Earnest but rarely saccharine, this promising new family drama (Monday, 9/8c) — to be paired in future weeks with the channel's best series, Switched at Birth — establishes its edgier tone by introducing its main character, the abused but prideful Callie (Maia Mitchell), as she gets roughed up on her way out of juvy and into the welcoming custody of Lena (Sherri Saum), who hasn't yet told her partner-the-cop Stef (Teri Polo) about the new addition.
Push Girls is back for a second season and the ladies are sassier than ever.
The series, which returns to Sundance on Monday, June 3 at 10/9c, documents the lives and friendship of wheelchair-bound women Angela, Auti, Mia and Tiphany, as they explore new romances, mentor newly injured patients, and try out modern technologies. In the season premiere, Angela ponders life after separating from her famous husband, actor Dustin Nguyen, Auti tries to overcome struggles in her marriage, and Mia helps Tiphany move into her first home.
