About the show
Mom is American situational comedy television series that premiered on CBS on September 23, 2013 and is currently in its fourth season that kicked off on October 27, 2016. The show was created by Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky and Gemma Baker, is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions and Warner Bros. Television 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.
Critical reception and renewal prospects
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 first two seasons, and even though the critically-acclaimed comedy series exhibited a significant 20% drop in its viewership in its most recently completed third installment, CBS decided to renew it once again. The current fourth season premiered to 7.02 million viewers and has climbed as high as 7.64 million for episode four. The network is unlikely to put an end to this true-to-life and positively charged series, so stay with us, and we will inform you when a decision is made on the fate of Mom.
