About the show
Mom is American situational comedy television series that premiered on CBS on September 23, 2013 and is currently into its third season. The show was created by Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky and Gemma Baker, and is a genuine hit for the network.
The sitcom`s central themes are recovery from addiction, motherhood, family relationships, although other important and often difficult life issues are raised regularly. Christy Plankett (Anna Farris) is a single mother who has just sobered up and is recovering from a drug, alcohol and gambling addictions. Christy`s mother Bonnie Plankett (Alison Janney) is another recovering addict character in the show. Christy`s two children are also in the picture - older daughter Violet (Sadie Calvano) is a teen mother, just like her own mom once was, (only Violet decides to give the baby up for adoption for the sake of her better future), and younger son Roscoe (Blake Garrett Rosenthal), a bratty kid who idolizes his dad.
Mom has received universal acclaim from the critics, as well as a number of accolades, with Alison Janney being awarded an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, among other awards. The cast, especially the two leads, was praised unanimously for its wholesome performance, sincerity, social relevance and great laughs even in the most painful situations. The ratings have been climbing steadily over the two seasons, and the CBS network is unlikely to put an end to this true-to-life and positively charged series.
Season 3 recap
On May 18, 2016 CBS`s popular sitcom Mom has wrapped up its 22-episode third season with an audience of 8,14 million viewers for the final episode. The season delivered an average of 7.9 million viewers, which is a 20% (and a 2 million) drop compared to the previous season, which is definitely a significant one. The 18-49 demographic rating has lost 26% and constitutes 1.69 for the third chapter. Despite these losses, in March 2016 CBS renewed the series for a fourth season, slated to air in the fall of 2016. The series finale laid the groundwork for the next season, with Bonnie finally being able to express her love for her daughter Christy, who is desperate to raise the money for her tuition, and Christy coming to terms with her priorities and winning a scholarship, which would significantly help to carry her through the remaining years of college. Worries about Violet`s future are multiplied after her mom and grandmother discover her smoking bong at their house. How will all these single moms fare in the next season? Stay tuned and find out.
