“The Mom Switch” (01/24/18; 9:30-10:00PM) – After feeling unappreciated by Greg and the kids, Katie ditches her family for a day at her favorite hideaway spot and leaves Viv in charge of the household. Viv takes this as an opportunity to see if she really is mom material, on an all-new episode of “American Housewife,” airing WEDNESDAY, JAN. 24 (9:31-10:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

“Midlife Crisis” was written by Sarah Dunn and directed by Rebecca Asher.

“The Mom Switch” was written by Anthony Lombardo and directed by Melissa Kosar.

Katie Otto, a confident, unapologetic wife and mother of three, raises her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut, filled with “perfect” mommies and their “perfect” offspring.

Joining Katie in her perfectly imperfect world is her husband, Greg Otto, who supports her in every way possible, but with a dash of reality thrown in as they work to ensure their children – including their oldest teenage daughter, Taylor, who is already set on the “perfect” path; their middle son Oliver who has one goal in life: to be rich; and their youngest, Anna Kat, who needs a little extra help navigating life – do not end up like everyone else. Katie also has her closest friends in town, Angela and Doris, who help her keep it all in perspective.

Despite her flaws and unconventional ways, Katie ultimately only wants the best for her kids and will fight tooth and nail to instill some good old-fashioned values in them, if it’s the last thing she does.

The series stars Katy Mixon as Katie Otto, Diedrich Bader as Jeff Otto, Johnny Sequoyah as Taylor, Daniel DiMaggio as Harrison, Julia Butters as Anna-Kat, Carly Hughes as Angela and Ali Wong as Doris.
