The show stars Christina Applegate as single mother Jesse Warner, raising her nine-year-old son in the big city. She works for her father in a German-themed bar in Buffalo, New York, serving beer while wearing a dirndl. Jesse's love interest, a Chilean named Diego (Bruno Campos), gains a rival when her ex-husband comes to town, intent on winning her back.
In the second season, Jesse becomes a nurse, and stories revolve around her friends instead of her family.

Reception and cancellation
While Jesse was in the top 20 in the Nielsen ratings regularly, the show lost much ground to Friends, its powerful lead-in. As a result, NBC decided to cancel the show after its second season. A total of 42 episodes were produced.
