Yeah, right.

The series will follow the 46-year-old single mom as she attempts to jump-start daughter Ali’s (age 14) burgeoning singing and acting career while also keeping track of son Cody’s (age 11) school and sports schedules, and the goings on of eldest son Michael (age 20).

The most famous member of the Lohan clan won’t be appearing on the show.

“I told Lindsay I don’t want her on the show right now,” Mrs. Lohan says in TV Guide. “Doing reality TV would almost be taking a step backward as far as her career goes.”

The usually chipper Lisa Simpson isn’t sounding so happy these days.

Yeardley Smith, who provides the voice for “The Simpsons” brainy character Lisa, filed for divorce on Wednesday from her husband Daniel Erickson, Zap2it.com says, citing a report by TMZ.com.

The petition, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, cites irreconcilable differences for the split. Miss Smith, 43, is requesting that she not be ordered to pay spousal support.

The couple tied the knot in 2002, and they have no children. Miss Smith, an Emmy winner for her role as Lisa, was previously wed to actor Christopher Grove, whom she divorced in 1992.

The 9th Annual Movie Preview Awards (8 p.m., MyNetworkTV, Channel 20) Trailers can be just as much fun to watch as the movies they represent — sometimes moreso. They get their due with comedian Sinbad hosting this two-hour event. Film trailers will compete for recognition in 16 categories, including Trailer of the Year, Best Summer Blockbuster Trailer and Most Original Trailer. There’s even a Golden Fleece Award for the best trailer for a bad movie. (No, Paris Hilton’s “The Hottie & the Nottie” isn’t nominated for that honor — it’s in the Trashiest Trailer category.)
