Gilmore Girls and Weeds have two very different types of quirky single moms - Lorelai Gilmore manages the town's bed and breakfast while raising her daughter while Nancy Botwin turns to more nefarious money-making options - but both love the heck out of their kids and are doing their best to give them the best lives possible, even if they make questionable choices sometimes. Whether they're facing a midlife crisis while raising kids, or have found a sitcom-stable balance with help from friends and family, the moms in these shows aren't just single, they're singular.
