There’s a new TV show this Thursday at 8pm (CST) I plan on trying to catch. Frankly this introductory clip is not that funny in my opinion, but I will give it a chance because of the subject matter. From the creator of The Big Bang Theory and starring Anna Farris I have high hopes that it will get better as the season develops and somewhat rooted in the reality of it’s premise. From CBS:
MOM is a comedy from executive producer Chuck Lorre starring Anna Faris as a newly sober single mom raising two children in a world full of temptations and pitfalls, and multiple Emmy Award winner Allison Janney as her critical, estranged mother. Christy (Faris) is a waitress at a posh Napa Valley establishment who is four months clean and doing her best to be a good mom and overcome a history of questionable choices. Her sobriety is tested when Bonnie (Janney), her recovering alcoholic mom, reappears chock-full of passive-aggressive insights into Christy’s many mistakes.
