Can there ever be too much Judith Light on television? In a word: no. Which is why it’s good that the Who’s the Boss? legend is returning to her guesting gig on TV Land’s sitcom The Exes, where she plays the over-bearing mother to Kristen Johnston’s divorce lawyer character Holly Brooks. EW has an exclusive clip of Light’s reappearance on The Exes in tomorrow night’s new episode, titled “Sister Act,” which also stars Amanda Detmer as Light’s other, more beloved, perfect daughter Jill.
Just like last time, the appearance of Light’s motherly character ruffles Holly’s feathers, largely because she’s so often pushed to the side in favor of her perfect — and married — sister. The full episode apparently finds Holly inventing an alternative lifestyle for herself that spirals out of control (to impress Mommy Dearest maybe?), but until it airs Wednesday evening at 10:30 p.m., whet your appetite with a preview clip of Light’s return — and the fireworks it causes — here:
