We love our TV moms

The matriarch on Fox's hit series "Empire" is an ex-con taking on her ex-husband Lucious, reclaiming her part in the family record company and reuniting with sons Andre, Jamal, and Hakeem.

Played to the hilt by actress Taraji P. Henson, "Cookie" is tough and just one of the modern TV moms we adore.

Here are some others:

Bonnie Plunkett on "Mom"

It isn't easy to make drug and alcohol abuse recovery funny, but Allison Janney as Bonnie and Anna Faris as her daughter, Christy, do a great job on the hit CBS comedy "Mom."

Lindsay Lohan's new TV show

The actress tweeted a trailer for what she says is her new show.

"The Anti-Social Network" has the 30-year-old secretly taking over people's social media accounts as they complete challenges for prizes.

"I'm back b****es," Lohan says in the video.

"Everybody knows you should never leave your phone lying around, especially near me," she continues. "I decided I'm going to hijack your social media -- your Instagram, your Snapchat, your Facebook, your Twitter, all of it -- for 24 hours."
