Sadie Calvano Talks 'Mom' Season 2, Family And Charity

Sadie Calvano Talks 'Mom' Season 2, Family And Charity
CBS's Mom - a 2014 People's Choice Award Favorite New TV Comedy nominee - is back for its second season tonight, continuing the dysfunctional but well-meaning escapades of the Plunkett family. We recently caught up with Sadie Calvano, who plays Christy's (Anna Faris) daughter Violet, to ask her what laughs and lessons are coming in season two.

The new episodes don't pick up immediately after last season's surprisingly touching finale. "We ended last season with Violet giving away her baby," she explained. "In season two, you see Violet dealing with the ramifications of that decision. She's...

Fall TV 2014: A Night By Night Comparison Of What May And May Not Work

Fall TV 2014: A Night By Night Comparison Of What May And May No
Now that all the big networks have revealed what they’ll be showing us this fall, let’s take a look at what may or may not work.

SUNDAY:

ABC is essentially playing it safe, and keeping Sunday Night intact. American Crime will swap for Resurrection at midseason. Resurrection was a buzzy drama that started seeing a ratings decline. Not waiting till midseason is probably a smart move. You don’t want to lose any more audience. It’s not a winning strategy, but ABC just doesn’t want to be in last place.

NBC has football, another super safe move. CBS is shaking things up, banishing Amazing Race...

CBS Renews A Ton Of Shows

March 13th, 2014 3:16pm EDT
The Good Wife
CBS issued renewals to NCIS, NCIS: LA, CSI, Criminal Minds, Person Of Interest, Elementary, Hawaii Five-O, Blue Bloods, The Good Wife, 2 Broke Girls, The Millers, Mom, Mike and Molly, Two and a Half Men, The Amazing Race, Survivor, Undercover Boss, 60 Minutes, and 48 Hours. Add to that the renewal of The Big Bang Theory, and CBS just renewed a whopping 20 shows.

Not being picked up, but still not cancelled, are The Mentalist, Intelligence, Hostages, and The Crazy Ones. I would definitely rule out Intelligence and Hostages. Both failed to grab huge audiences. I think The Mentalist will prob...

The Funny Side Of Allison Janney

December 9th, 2013 2:08pm EST
Allison Janney
We're all fans of Allison Janney's dramatic work as press secretary C.J. Cregg on The West Wing. But well before she was serving the country, Allison was making us laugh with her comedic talents, which are now on full display as she stars in the CBS sitcom Mom. BFTV had the pleasure of talking with Allison about her new leading role last week, and gaining some insight into this whole other side of her awesomeness.

What made her want to sign on to another TV series in the first place? "I've been looking ever since West Wing," explained the actress, who also took a stab at comedy with the sh...

TV Report Card: Grading 5 New Shows

November 18th, 2013 3:05pm EST
Mom
So far, the 2013-13 television season has delivered far more home-runs than strike-outs.  Now that shows are doling out their juiciest storylines for November sweeps, it's time to hand out grades for the freshman television shows. 

"Mom" CBS, Mondays at 9:30pm EST
Anna Faris and Allison Janney are a mother-daughter duo battling their demons in this delightfully dysfunctional comedy from the sitcom king, Chuck Lorre.  The two are also a heartbreakingly hilarious combo that turn their struggle to sobriety into a blazingly entertaining and realistic journey.  In the most timely and relatabl...

2013 Fall TV Season: What Will Be The Second Cancellation?

October 8th, 2013 6:00pm EDT
Ironside
NBC- The Voice is still doing good numbers on Monday/Tuesday. The Blacklist is winning its timeslot, and was the first show (technically) to be rewarded with a back-nine pickup. Chicago Fire is also doing solid numbers on Tuesday. Revolution needs to regain some audience members if it wants a second season. With the success of The Blacklist, and Chicago Fire doing OK, Revolution is looking to be one of NBC’s weaker points right now. I can’t see it not running the full second season, but it might not get a third. Also, Ironside is definitely going to get cancelled. The premiere was so low, a...

Fall 2013 TV Report (So Far)

October 5th, 2013 2:06pm EDT
Sleepy  Hollow
Here’s how the Fall TV season has been shaping up.

Sunday:

ABC doesn’t have a lot to celebrate about. Once Upon A Time and Revenge are both down season-to-season, yet up from last season’s finales. So, really, you could say they are even for the night. Their new drama, Betrayal, however is a disappointment. Low ratings. Does ABC have anything ready to replace Betrayal though? They’re already definitely going to cancel the much lower rated Lucky 7 (an almost certainty), can they afford to axe two shows?

CBS has a nice strong lineup of returning shows, all performing well. FOX’s shows are ...

Top 10 Predicted Hits And Misses Of The New 2013 Fall TV Season

August 17th, 2013 4:00pm EDT
Mom
With the dog days of August winding down, the TV season is just around the corner with lots of new series premieres being served up. We've taken a closer look at the big networks fall offerings – here's what we think will be the top hits and misses of the new TV season.

Top 10 Hits:

Mom: Chuck Lorre is pretty close to owning CBS at this point. Even if the show is dreadful, it will still benefit from being a part of CBS’s strong Monday night lineup, and leading out from 2 Broke Girls which has evolved into a hit over the last two seasons. Plus, the addition of Anna Faris and Allison Janney...
