FILE - This undated publicity photo released by The WP shows Lauren Graham, who stars as Lorelai Gilmore in the network's popular series, "Gilmore Girls." Why settle for one great mom when, as any TV viewer knows, you can adopt a series of them? AP Television Writer Lynn Elber chooses five of the best sit com moms, from the demure 1950s version to the freewheeling 21st-century incarnation.
