‘Family Guy’ matriarch Lois Griffin beats Michelle Obama and others to top “Favorite Moms” survey


With Mother’s Day on Sunday, a new survey has revealed Americans’ favorite famous mom is none other than Lois Griffin from Family Guy.

Since moms’ special day coincides with National Brioche Day — don’t you dare forget — brioche brand St Pierre commissioned a survey of 2,000 Americans as to which matriarchs, both real and fictional, were their faves.

The acerbic Lois topped the list, besting Michelle Obama (#2), Serena Williams (#3), Beyoncé (#4) and Jennifer Lopez (#5).

Others who made the Top 20 were Rihanna (#6); Florence Henderson‘s Carol Brady from The Brady Bunch (#10); Katy Perry (#12); Katey Sagal‘s Peggy Bundy from Married With Children; and Linda Hamilton‘s Sarah Connor from the Terminator movies (#19).
