News & Interviews for Mom: Season 1
Mom feels like more than an opiate. We're early in the 12 steps. But heart and commitment mean everything.
Beneath the armor plating of punch lines beats a wounded and affecting heart.
Mom is one of the very few sitcoms on television... to feature characters who are not thoughtlessly affluent.
It's a punch-line shooting gallery, setting 'em up and knocking 'em down, with a rhythm reminiscent of the classic Bob Newhart sitcoms.
Given the number of self-absorbed and annoying fathers on sitcoms, another self-absorbed and annoying mother is fine. She helps keep the party balanced. But she also needs to make the party funnier, and CBS' new Mom does not.
This is the kind of show that you want to root for. It's relatable, but if there is any shortfall right now, it may be in the comedy department, because while the show is funny at times, most moments are merely smirk-worthy.
Really, though I think it's because Anna Faris is just so damn likeable.
It's trying too hard to be a "sitcom" that looks and feels straight out of 1992. The bones are there, but the execution is lacking.
Audience Reviews for Mom: Season 1
2d agoThis TV show has nothing but bland jokes constantly talking about sex like it's a joke.

Dec 12, 2017This is my favorite show right now.
Nov 11, 2017Fantastic show! Great comedy, inspiring - witty -
Oct 22, 2017I love how even thought this is a comedy there is still a emotional depth to the story. This is one of my top 5 favorite comedy TV shows of all time and one of my favorite TV shows. The writing is hilarious and the jokes are spot on every time. The chemistry between Anna Faris and Alison Janney is fantastic. The cast all give stupendous and hilarious performances especially Alison Janney, Anna Faris, Matt Jones, French Stewart, Kevin Pollack, and Mimi Kennedy. A+.
Jun 28, 2015It works because Anna Faris and Allison Janney sell the writing really well.
Jun 17, 2015It was okay. An easy watch. A couple laughs an episode. So good I finished the first season but not good enough to watch a second one.
Aug 13, 2014It's a bit dramatic actually. Remove the laugh track and it is kind of sad. Also, it glorifies teen pregnancy and encourages the bs side of such a relevant theme. It also overly fantasizes about the real economic possibility of this family.
Jul 28, 2014There are other shows out there that attempt to deal with addiction and recovery, but they're all garbage compared to this. Truly funny and dare I say original? Going to watch this show for as long as they're going to make it.
Jul 15, 2014The stupidest thing that Chuck Lorre has done. Cheap jokes, cheap script with some interesting performances but nothing that I can not see in other place.
