That's My Mama is an ABC network sitcom created by Dan T. Bradley & Allan L. Rice, and developed by Stanley Ralph Ross.

The show aired from September 4, 1974 to December 24, 1975, lasting for two seasons & 39 episodes.

The pilot episode (which starred Teresa Merritt and Godfrey Cambridge) aired under the title "The Furst Family of Washington" a year before the series' debut.

"That's My Mama" was never a ratings success and was not one of the top 30 most-watched U.S. programs in the Nielsen ratings for either the 1974–1975 or 1975–1976 television seasons.

As a result, the series ended on Christmas Eve of 1975.
