Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Meet Mary Occhino, renowned psychic intuitive, popular host of her own daily satellite radio show, successful author, but first and foremost . . . Mom. As matriarch of her colorful Long Island, Italian-American family, Mary can’t help but take her work home with her because communicating with the spirit world is a 24-hour a day job. Yet, with strangers eagerly lining up seeking her remarkable counsel, her own adult children — Chris (the eccentric paranormal investigator), Carl (the skeptical journalist), and Jacqueline (her twenty-four year old daughter who may or may not have inherited her mother’s "gift") — refuse to heed her motherly advice, even if she’s usually right. Equal parts humor and drama, Mary Knows Best shows what happens when a not-so-normal family meets the paranormal.
|1||Closed CaptioningVideoEpisode 101||In the premiere episode, Mary, already incredibly busy with her radio show and writing career, decides to open her new store, "Celestial Angels." She enlists her son, Carl, to help her - but when she impulsively finds a space with "good energy," it leaves the family frantically scrambling to get it ready in time for the grand opening. Along the way, we follow Chris' passionate, and a little unfocused, plans to create a self-improvement seminar, as well as Mary's well intentioned but unwelcome attempts to find Jackie's "Mr. Right."||41:38||$1.99||View In iTunes|
|2||Closed CaptioningVideoEpisode 102: 'Roots & Rhythm'||In this episode Jackie reveals to her family that she has been dating her ex boyfriend for eight months. The news doesn't settle well with Mary because she is reminded of the crap Jackie went through with her ex. Despite Mary and the family's uneasiness with the situation, Jackie is still asked to create a theme song with uncle Charlie for Mary's show and after giving MUCH attitude, she completes it. We also see Mary do a few readings where she reveals some information about JP Morgan Chase and a woman's dead friend. Chris on the other hand is out "Justifying his eccentricities" (which he also got tatted on his arm). He started his own radio show and even though he got tons of negative feedback, his optimism and drive hasn't wavered. Later, Mary and Carl research their family lineage and uncover love letters written by her grandparents to one another. She also catches up with her last living relative on her father's side and visits a park dedicated to her grandfather's memory.||41:54||$1.99||View In iTunes|

She takes a few classes, sets up a meeting with a Ford plus size model to get some pointers and preps for two outstanding photo shoots. Once she's gotten her own priorities in check, Jackie then focuses her energy on getting her mom a date. She enlists the help of uncle Charlie and her dad Dennis (ironically) to help find Mr. Right for Mary. But to their disappointment, Mary's not ready to make nice. She browses through the web profiles of the bachelors but decides that she isn't interested in dating or starting a relationship with anyone at the moment. Later, Mary holds a seminar with a large group of people at her store Celestial Whispers. Not wanting to disappoint anyone, Mary reads everyone in the room even though it leaves her emotionally and mentally drained. Despite her fatigue Mary schedules more meetings with women who are questioning the well being of their family members and love lives. That's Mary O. for ya, dedicated beyond measure to her craft. The family ends an exciting season with Mary still single, Jackie embarking on a budding modeling career and Chris finally getting that back of his waxed -- you've got to see it to believe it. What's next for this colorful clan? Only Mary knows...||40:07||$1.99||View In iTunes|

don't waste your time
Just what we need, another know it all Long Island woman. These reality shows are redundant and boring. If you expect something interesting to happen (she can see dead people), you'll probably die first.
