Tv Season Info

In Season 3 of "Mom," Christy (Anna Faris) and Bonnie (Allison Janney) decide to pass on what they've learned as they battle with their addictions by taking young addicts under their wing. At home, Christy is determined to change her future and takes the pre-law exam, but the cost of college may bring her dreams to an end. Meanwhile, Bonnie decides to get back into dating after catching the eye of Christy's boss, Steve (Don McManus). And much to the disgust of Candace (Sara Rue), Christy draws the attention of her father, Fred (Harry Hamlin), while at a lunch with Baxter (Matt Jones). Elsewhere, Violet (Sadie Calvano) hits a bump in the road with Gregory (David Krumholtz) and Christy is horrified to realize there is more than meets the eye to Violet's heartbreak. Guest starring Judy Greer, Rosie O'Donnell, Rhea Perlman and Joe Manganiello.

Critic Reviews for Mom: Season 3

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

It would be very easy for the remaining producers of multi-cam to leave that stuff to their more fashionable counterparts and just stick to telling jokes. Mom, thankfully, is a strong reminder of just how elastic this 64-year-old format is.

Of course, as fans of CBS' increasingly nuanced comedy have come to expect, there's a gut punch before the punchline.

November 10, 2015 | Full Review…

It remains a throwback to '70s and '80s comedies like "All in the Family," "Taxi," and even "Cheers," which took their characters seriously enough to be comfortable with purely dramatic scenes, which in turn only makes the laughter feel more potent.

November 5, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

With a few ballsy plot lines under its belt and an assured step in the right direction in the season three premiere, Mom may come off as occasionally familiar in its formatting, but content wise it feels downright groundbreaking.

November 2, 2015 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Moments like this prove why the show is so touted for its humor and truthfulness, and why Allison Janney in particular can do no wrong.

Still, even with the admirable mix of laughs and lumps in the throat that this latest installment elicited, it's not difficult to understand why the show hasn't become as addictive as CBS would surely like it to be.

The plot is rolling along nicely while the dynamic between Janney and Faris remained strong.
