The new sitcom from Chuck Lorre stars Faris as Christy, a newly sober single mom. This is Faris' first regular TV gig and "The House Bunny" actress said a combination of things drew her to the project.
"The script was so strong and so funny, the character was so complicated and dimensional and then obviously Chuck Lorre and CBS. You couldn't be in better hands." Faris told The Huffington Post on the red carpet of CBS's upfront presentation. "Then Allison came on ... it sounds like one of these actor soundbites that I'm about to tell you, but ... I would wake up and be really excited to go to work. Even though we have our dream jobs, basically it doesn't always happen."
Janney plays Bonnie, Christy's passive-aggressive mother who is also struggling with her own addictions. To say the relationship is complicated is an understatement. »

At 48, Molly Shannon is still the kind of woman who turns heads, with her mischievous grin and twinkling blue eyes. And, when she opens her mouth, she’s also the kind of woman who causes you to bust a gut. In short, she’s wildly funny. Shannon is perhaps best known for her six-year run on “Saturday Night Live,” where she brought to life such remarkable characters as 50-year-old Sally O’Malley between 1995 and 2001. But she’s also enjoyed a memorable presence on many other TV shows as well, appearing on everything from “Seinfeld” to “The Middle” to HBO’s “Enlightened.”
Born in 1964 in Shaker Heights, Ohio, Shannon endured a horrific tragedy early on that would shape the rest of her life. »

CBS has released promotional videos for six of its eight new series premiering next season. The network opted to post behind-the-scenes videos rather than traditional trailers. Included is The Millers with Will Arnett, Mom with Anna Faris, The Crazy Ones with Robin Williams and Hostages with Toni Collette. Cam Gigandet’s legal drama Reckless and the ensemble comedy Friends with Better Live are not included. Watch the clips below. Enjoy!
This heavily serialized thriller is set for a limited run of 15 episodes. Starring Toni Collette, Dylan McDermott and Tate Donovan, Hostages has been compared in spirit to an extended arc from Person of Interest. Like Showtime’s Homeland, the new series is based on an Israeli series by Alon Aranya, Omri Givon and Rotem Shamir. The show’s plot centers on a family wrapped up in a mass political conspiracy that is poised to change their lives forever.
Hostages airs mondays at 10 p. »

Add some footage of Kelly Clarkson cracking up on set while filming the pilot and "The Crazy Ones" may be the network's top offering.Check out the promos below, with the aforementioned David E. Kelley dramedy and "Hostages" standing out as the most promising shows.Click here to see NBC's trailers for shows with Michael J.

Who says CBS doesn’t make bold programming moves? Oh, that’s right: Everyone. But everyone would be slightly wrong! At yesterday’s upfront presentation, the nation’s most-watched — if least-interesting — broadcast television network surprised reporters by revealing that it was not green-lighting two high-profile potential series: A small screen revival of Beverly Hills Cop from executive producer Shawn Ryan (The Shield) starring Brandon T. Jackson as the son of Axel Foley and a recurring Eddie Murphy; and NCIS: Red, starring John Corbett and Kim Raver. Beverly Hills Cop might find a home elsewhere, while NCIS: Red was deemed unworthy »

For a newly sober single mom, it's probably not a great idea for your estranged, recovering alcoholic mother to find her way back into your life. Nor is it a solid plan to live in wine country, working at a Napa Valley restaurant. But that's exactly what Anna Faris' character Christy is facing in the new CBS comedy "Mom."
The new series, Faris' first regular TV gig, brings prolific producer Chuck Lorre's tally to four on the network's docket for 2013-14. ("The Big Bang Theory" and "Two and a Half Men" also return this fall, with "Mike & Molly" held for midseason.) Centered around Faris' Christy, the show follows the exploits of the single mom who's been sober for four months. Working as a waitress, her newfound sobriety is tested when Bonnie (played by the estimable Allison Janney), her estranged mom reenters her life to over-complicate Christy's already crowded life. »
In our first extended trailer at upcoming CBS shows, watch the following preview for Hostages, which stars Collette as a surgeon who is kidnapped the night before a very important procedure. It will debut in September and air Mondays at 10:

Will CBS make you laugh this year? Well, they'll certainly try. Beware: instead of regular previews, they've decided to just post these behind-the-scenes promos. So, take what you get. First up, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams are paired up as father-daughter advertising executives in The Crazy Ones, a David E. Kelley joint.We Are Men, a comedy featuring Kal Penn, Tony Shalhoub, and Jerry O'Connell airs Mondays at 8:30 p.m. and is about a bunch of bros living together in a short-term apartment complex. Adrian Monk would not approve. Executive Producer Chuck Lorre's Mom stars Anna Faris and Allison Janney as a mother-daughter duo who are both recovering alcoholics. So like Gilmore Girls, but with super dysfunction. Nate Corddry and French Stewart(!) are also there, hanging out. »

It's a feel good comedy from Chuck Lorre! And after all the "Two and A Half Men" drama, he probably needs a feel good comedy. While Lorre may not be a selling point for everyone, the stars of this show might be: Anna Faris and Allison Janney. Faris (right) is Christy, a newly sober single mom raising two children in a world full of temptations and pitfalls, and Janney is her passive-aggressive, recovering alcoholic mother. "Mom" is set to air Mondays at 9:30 p.m. this fall. Will you be watching? k »

CBS has announced their schedule for the fall portion of the 2013-14 season. The new shows include The Crazy Ones, Friends with Better Lives, Hostages, Intelligence, The Millers, Mom, Reckless, and We Are Men.
For the most part, not much has changed for the returning shows except that Person of Interest is moving to Tuesdays at 10pm (leading out of NCIS: Los Angeles), Two and a Half Men has moved to 9:30pm on Thursdays, and Hawaii Five-0 has been sent to Fridays.
Here's the complete press release:
CBS Announces 2013-2014 Prime Time Schedule
Network Introduces Five New Series for Fall and Three for Mid-Season
America's Most-Watched Network Makes Big Moves in Comedy for Fall
The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the fourth announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on CBS.
The king of the networks easily remains in charge despite "Elementary" being their only fresh hit of last season's new shows. The network's line-up remains fairly stable with only a few key moves such as Thursday being expanded to include two hours of comedy programming, and "Hawaii Five-0" moving to Fridays.
Several other pilots didn't make the cut this week including the series sequel to the "Beverly Hills Cop" movies, a TV version of the comedy "Bad Teacher", the "NCIS" mobile spin-off "NCIS: Red," a procedural based on Leif G.W. Persson's literary homicide detective Everett Backstrom, the Frank Marshall-produced political thriller "The Ordained" about a priest turned lawyer trying to save his sister from assassination, »

The latest stars to be subjected to “yes, but can they sing?” scrutiny: Heartthrobs Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine, potentially. EW has confirmed that Gyllenhaal is in talks to join Disney’s film adaptation of Into the Woods, the 1987 Stephen Sondheim musical about interwoven fairy tales. Deadline writes that Pine, too, is in talks for the film, though his rep would not confirm the news.
The actors are up for the roles of Cinderella’s Prince and Rapunzel’s Prince. There’s no word yet on which would be playing which. (Cinderella’s Prince is the bigger part, though.)

Chicago – When you’re the #1 network on TV, it must be tempting to stay the course. However, CBS always shakes things up a bit and this year is no different. The 2013-14 schedule, announced this morning, features four new comedies (including a new comedy block in one of their most successful time slots) and one drama, along with new time slots for big hits “Person of Interest,” “Two and a Half Men,” and “Hawaii Five-0.” The five new shows feature a stunning degree of star power with lead roles taken by Robin Williams, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Margo Martindale, Tony Shalhoub, Toni Collette, Will Arnett, Tate Donovan, Allison Janney, and more. It must be nice to be #1.
Full schedule below with new show descriptions under that. Come back for more news, reviews, and previews of the 2013-14 Fall schedule.
