What’s This TV Show About?
A sitcom airing on the CBS television network, Mom stars Anna Faris, Allison Janney, Jaime Pressly, Matt Jones, Sadie Calvano, Blake Garrett Rosenthal, Mimi Kennedy, Beth Hall, and William Fichtner. The series centers on Christy (Faris), a single mom in recovery who has moved back in with her own single mother, Bonnie (Janney), who’s also in recovery. Bonnie’s attempts to make up for her failings can try Christy’s patience. After all, she’s working on her relationships with her own kids and their father and working toward a new career. Meanwhile, Bonnie is learning how to forge healthy relationships and still wonders what she’ll be when she grows up. Together, and with the help of AA, Christy and Bonnie spot one another along the road to recovery.
Season Five Ratings
The fifth season of Mom is averaging a 1.46 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 8.76 million viewers. Compared to season four, that’s up by 2% in the demo and up by 16% in viewership. Find out how Mom stacks up against the other CBS TV shows.
Although this comedy’s ratings have slipped over the years, historically, Mom has done pretty well in the demo, which — Big Bang Theory aside — isn’t the Tiffany Network’s strong suit. Flying a bit blind, I expect it will score a renewal. Still, comedies often start to show their age around now, and this program has a good sized syndication package, so another season is not guaranteed. I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free updates on any Mom cancellation or renewal news.
