TV show description:
This comedy series follows a single mother named Christy (Anna Faris) who is newly sober and decides to restart her life in the Napa Valley in California. Her sobriety is tested by her mother, Bonnie (Allison Janney), who introduced alcohol and drugs to Christy at an early age and is also in recovery.

Bonnie’s working on repairing their mother-daughter relationship and is all too happy to offer insights into Christy’s mistakes.

Christy’s children are Violet (Sadie Calvano) a sarcastic 16-year-old, and Roscoe (Blake Garrett Rosenthal), an innocent and honest pre-teen. Violet has a sexually-active relationship with a long-haired clueless dude named Luke (Spencer Daniels) and Christy is worried that her daughter will repeat her mistake of dropping out and becoming a teen mother.

To make matters worse, Roscoe’s father, Baxter (Matt Jones), is back in the picture — at least for as long as the red van he lives in isn’t towed away.

Christy gets a job as a waitress at a posh restaurant that’s managed by Gabriel (Nick Corddry). He’s very supportive of her and they share a sexual attraction — unfortunately, he has a snotty wife named Claudia. Rudy (French Stewart) is the establishment’s thoughtless and temperamental head chef.

Christy tries to remain as positive as she can while pursuing her new path in life. Unfortunately, it’s an uphill battle thanks to a very dysfunctional support system.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this show? Why was Alvin killed off?!


Sunshine January 24, 2015 at 4:56 am

I think he was originally just a guest star..that could not go far..hey, that rhymes!
Chuck Lorre IS a writer genius after all so I am sure this is just a ‘bend in the road, not the end in the road’ in this sitcom. It will be exciting to see what Chuck (God of sitcoms) decides to do in the future as this family deals with the aftermath of Alvin’s passing and learns how to deal with its grief.
We can be assured that it will be FUNNAY!! I can hardly wait!!

I love this show you can laugh, cry, think, feel, then laugh again.
But why oh why did we kill Elvin


Love Mom January 23, 2015 at 6:08 am

Love Mom still but SCREAM! I am SO NOT HAPPY about Alvin dropping dead however very funny HOW he dropped dead. And the first scenes in the funeral, HILARIOUS! But from my own personal life experiences, this made a rock come up deep inside and I felt a little sick when he died. Pretty sure this happened to alot of us!
Anyway, Chuck Lorre obviously thinks MOM will be better if Alvin dies. Chuck, you are representing God to millions of people. Watch yourself! (LOL)

No seriously, THANK YOU Chuck Lorre for writing such a great show!

I enjoyed Alvin’s sweet, loving spirit – why did you have to kill him off? Both he and Roscoe are so refreshing. Love the show.

I love this show mom I watch every Thursday. And the Big Bang theory

Amazing funny, show. Lead actors are brilliant. Please don’t cancel.

Except the son is Roscoe – the boyfriend is Luke.

KEEP this show. One of the funniest on TV.


Alauda November 21, 2014 at 2:52 pm

I can’t believe anyone thought to cancel this show. There are way too many bad comedies on TV today. Mom is hysterical. I can’t wait to watch this show. I almost like it more than Big Bang, and I love Big Bang. The way the characters play off of each other is priceless. Allison Janney is wonderful. I’ve only seen her in serious roles. Anna Faris is a gem as well. Gosh, even my parents are tuning in now to watch it, and I’m a baby boomer.

Please cancel. Filthy Two and a Half men type humor. If not cancelled, should not be on prior to 10PM at night to minimize its exposure to children.


Sunshine November 19, 2014 at 6:55 am

@monk: Although children should not be watching some shows and maybe even this one, I would say to you that there’s a difference between filthy and real language. As a old hippie chick with lots of mistakes and learning experiences behind me, I identify with this REAL WORLD show a whole lot and only wish it would be a hour long instead of the piddly thirty minutes.


Alauda November 21, 2014 at 2:57 pm

So true, Sunshine. Take off the horribly violence on TV. That is much more harmful than this playful show. It does depict real world situations. The humor is very benign. If Monk doesn’t want her children to watch it, she should turn off the TV.

I really like the show Mom.
The casting is on spot, the story line hysterical
Do not cancel


Paul October 19, 2014 at 7:18 am

This is a really good show. The acting is superb. I can not imagine this show would be cancelled when so many show are rewed that are just not good.

Please do not cancel this show. We look forward to every episode.

When does the new season of Mom begin?
