As if being a homicide detective wasn’t a difficult enough job, throwing single mom on top of all that might be enough to stop even the strongest person. Not for Debra Messing’s (“Smash”) character on “The Mysteries of Laura,” though.
Messing stars as Laura Diamond, cop-by-day, mom-by-night in a mix of crime procedural and family comedy. Now if she can just get her ex-husband in line.
“The Mysteries of Laura” is scheduled for Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

Chris E. Hayner is equal parts nerd, crazy person and coffee. He watches too much TV, knows more about pro wrestling than you do and remembers every single show from the TGIF lineup. You may have seen him as a pro-shark protester in "Sharknado 3." His eventual memoir will be called "You're Wrong, Here's Why..." TV words to live by: "I'm a firm believer that sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing."
