Storyline

After two years in jail for shooting her cheating husband Sonny in his behind, Connie Drego returns home, to the motel she owns and which her oldest daughter Madeline kept open in her absence. Connie desperately wants to pick up the pieces of her life and try to do it right this time, but that's not going to be easy with her daughter Kerri well into puberty, Sonny still living in one of her rooms, and her bright Madeline married to Duane Cooper, the naive state trooper who arrested her.

Missed opportunity
24 November 2002 | by budikavlanSee all my reviews

This show never got much of a chance to succeed. Stephanie Hodge starred after "Nurses" and before "Unhappily Ever After." This sat on the shelf for a while, though, and by the time it was dropped into the schedule during the summer, most everyone involved had moved on. Hodge was soon to do "Unhappily," and Jennifer Aniston started "Friends" that fall. It's really a shame, because "Muddling" wasn't half bad as unheralded, small-net sitcoms go. Hodge played a white-trash ex-con released after a shortish prison sentence received for shooting her husband in the butt. Unfortunately, after she got out, he was back in her life. Her daughter (Aniston) and son-in-law were also around to complicate her life. The show was, as I said, non-terrible, and if I remember correctly, the ratings were decent. They weren't decent enough, however, to give the show a future.
