Jon Snow — Because he’s pretty, and even Moms understand that, in 2016, they have to let go of those comparable Taylor Kitsch crushes.
Oscar Isaac — Because he’s a soulful poet, and because he’s a good boy whose tail moms would crush like a beer can in a trash compactor.
Nate Berkus: I have no clue who this guy is, but in a Rasmussen poll of 1,210 women over the age of 55, Nate Berkus topped the list of men mothers wanted to decorate their interiors.
Gabriel Macht — You don’t think that Suits on the USA Network is still running after six seasons because of its complex legal storylines and its character development, did you?
Tom Selleck: Most people under 55 probably had no idea that Blue Bloods was still on, much less that it receives over 13 million viewers a week, on a Friday night. It’s also the most muted TV show of the week. “Shhhh. Stop talking, Tom. Just sit there and look pretty.”
Robert Taylor — This guy was the lead in a television series that was cancelled despite having better ratings than almost every drama on cable. Why? Because viewers of Longmire had a median age of 60. Netflix wisely picked it up, which is when your mothers discovered what binge-watching meant.
Mark Harmon: There’s a reason your mother is watching the same repeat of NCIS for the fourth time. With the door closed. It’s the same reason there are never any C” batteries in her house. What? Older women have needs, too.
