Trivia

In November 2017, after Louis C.K. confirmed the sexual misconduct allegations against him were true, FX canceled their overall deal with C.K. and his production company, Pig Newton. C.K. will have no involvement in future seasons of the series. That month, Adlon fired 3 Arts manager Dave Becky as her manager. Therefore, Pig Newton and 3 Arts will no longer co-produce the series going forward after they were both removed from the conclusion of the Season 2 finale. See more »

Single Mothers Everywhere - Ever
9 October 2017 | by linda-23017See all my reviews

I would like to thank whomever wrote the character Sam. She validates every honest and awful and beautiful part of being a single mother. My adult sons for years have described me to their friends as the Mom on Malcolm in the Middle but I cannot wait to introduce them to Sam. My older son was always in trouble and my younger son was so perfect I think I left skid marks in the driveway when I drove him to college. They are both beautiful and happy and I hope they never come back home to live with me (unless they want to finish college, then I will suck it up and take one for the team). I would just like to thank Sam for making me feel like it's o.k. to say that.
