Date My Mom is a television dating show airing on the music channel MTV and produced by Kalissa Productions. The series premiered on November 15, 2004.[1] An 18- to 24-year-old male, or gay male/lesbian female, goes on three separate dates with three moms, who try to convince them to pick their son or daughter to date. The dater only meets the mother and makes his or her decision solely on their impression of the mother and her descriptions of her child.

The dates are varied and are occasionally geared towards the dater's interests. The dates range from a simple lunch date to cheerleading lessons, washing cars, picking wild flowers, cooking, sports, and even getting tattoos. (It usually depends on the person's likes and dislikes). At the end of the date the mother reports back to the child. The mothers and contestants tend to be very assured of their chances.

After all dates are completed, an elaborate beachfront finale is conducted. The dater explains to each mother why he has or has not chosen her child, and one by one the sons or daughters are revealed according to the person's liking.

It has been alleged that the show is scripted.[2]
