Mom - CBS


A newly sober mum must deal with her own critical mother as she works hard to overcome past mistakes.

Matt Roush Says...

Seriously, Mother’s Day was just a few days ago, and CBS is asking us to say goodbye to its best comedy, Mom? Hardly seems fair, but that’s show business, and at least the series goes out strong, with Bonnie (Allison Janney, two-time Emmy winner in the role) reeling from another personal crisis by turning to her fabulous support group. Let’s give each their due: Mimi Kennedy as wise cat lady Marjorie, Jaime Pressly as the entitled Jill, Beth Hall as sad sack Wendy and the uproarious Kristen Johnston as Tammy, who recites one of the group’s mantras: “Don’t leave before the miracle.” As if we’d leave before the touching final scene, including Bonnie’s last testimonial. Melanie Lynskey (Two and a Half Men) guests as a skeptical newbie at their meetings, and Will Sasso is back as Jill’s beau Andy, who’s ready to take the next step with his newly pregnant soulmate. While we’re not ready to let this show go, its final act is satisfying.
