Mrs. Huxtable best TV mom: Poll


NEW YORK — Rudy and Theo would be proud.

Claire Huxtable, matriarch of The Cosby Show clan, was named best TV mom in a new poll released just in time for Mother's Day.

Played by Phylicia Rashad, Claire Huxtable was the witty, tough mother of five who also worked as a lawyer. Rashad played alongside Bill Cosby's Cliff Huxtable for eight years, until the NBC sitcom ended in 1992.

The 55-year-old actress, who's currently starring in the Broadway production of A Raisin in the Sun with Sean Combs, also was named "TV mom closest to your own mom in spirit."

Opinion Research Corporation conducted the poll from April 8-11. Results were based on 720 adults who have a living mother or mother-in-law. The margin of error was plus or minus four points.

Mrs. Cunningham of Happy Days, played by Marion Ross, was second, followed by Marge Simpson of The Simpsons, voiced by Julie Kavner.
