American Housewife (2016– )
We haven’t seen the last of Christy and Bonnie Plunkett. The mother-daughter duo are set to return for a sixth season on “Mom,” The Hollywood reporter confirms. Anna Farris and recent Oscar winner Allison Janney topline the CBS sitcom, which recently wrapped filming on its fifth season.
Farris plays Christy, a single mom who moves to Napa, California to start over with her two children. Still working on addressing her past of drug and alcohol abuse, she lands a job as a waitress and attends Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Bonnie, who is portrayed by Janney, is also a recovering addict. Janney’s taken home two Emmy Awards for her role on the series, which just celebrated its 100th episode.
“‘Mom’ has been a linchpin comedy for us over the last several years,” CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl said Sunday in a statement. “It’s a fearless series that tackles
With an average 1.7 rating among adults 18-49, Empire narrowly passed CBS' Survivor to lead the evening's original broadcast telecasts. Lead-out Star was also off from its week-ago return, though not by as much, averaging a 1.3 rating in the key demo.
On ABC, the second episode of Alex, Inc. (0.9 adults) saw viewers exit the network between steady episodes of The Goldbergs (1.3 adults) and Modern Family (1.5 adults). American Housewife (1.2 adults) and Designated Survivor...
Airing at 8:30 p.m., “Alex Inc.” delivered a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.8 million viewers. That is approximately an 18% decrease in the demo and approximately 17% in total viewers compared to the premiere. Earlier on ABC, “The Goldbergs” (1.3, 5.4 million) was steady. “Modern Family”(1.5, 5.5 million), “American Housewife” (1.2, 4.6 million), and “Designated Survivor” (0.7, 3.9 million) were all mostly even.
On Fox, “Empire” (1.7, 5.5 million) was down from its midseason debut last week, but was still the top-rated show of the night. “Star
Leading out of that, Star (4.3 mil/1.3) was down two tenths from its own midseason premiere.
CBS | Survivor (8.2 mil/1.6) and Criminal Minds (5.9 mil/1.0 out of an NCIS rerun) each dipped a tenth.
The CW | With its final Wednesday outing, the Friday-bound Life Sentence (440K/0.2) ticked up.
ABC | Alex, Inc. (3.8 mil/0.9) slipped two tenths from its premiere, The Goldbergs (5.4 mil/1.3) and American Housewife (4.6 mil/1.2) each dipped a tenth,
It isn't even really close. With a lineup that includes, at various times, The Goldbergs, Black-ish, Speechless, Fresh Off the Boat, the departing The Middle, the returning Roseanne and the desiccated corpse of what used to be Emmy-winning Modern Family, there's a formula for interesting and inclusive family sitcoms that the network has cracked, at least temporarily.
ABC's family sitcoms have generally helped each other, each amplifying what's good and different from the rest. There's a downside, though. American Housewife premiered with a misguided overemphasis on its...
Khan is the executive producer and creator of ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat,” which has been renewed for a fourth season. Park stars in the sitcom and Wong is currently writing on the show. Khan previously directed multiple episodes of “Fresh Off the Boat” and “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23.”
Wong and Park have teamed on the script with Michael Golamco in a story of childhood sweethearts who have a falling-out and don’t speak for 15 years. They reconnect as adults when Sasha, now a celebrity chef opening a restaurant in San Francisco, runs into Marcus, a happily struggling musician still living at home working for his dad — and discover the old sparks are still there.
Airing at 8 p.m. on CBS, “Survivor” averaged a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 8.2 million viewers, even with its performance last week. It was the top-rated and most-watched show of the night, pending updates.
Later on CBS, after a repeat of “NCIS,” “Criminal Minds” (0.9, 5.7 million) was up slightly in total viewers.
On ABC, a special episode of “Speechless” at 8 drew a 0.9 and 4.1 million viewers. A second episode at 8:30 drew a 0.9 and 3.7 million. A new episode of “American Housewife” (1.0, 3.6 million) was down in total viewers, while “Designated Survivor
Leading out of that, 9-1-1 (6.5 mil/1.6) was steady.
The CW | Riverdale (1.2 mil/0.4) dipped to season lows, while Life Sentence (620K/0.2) was steady in Week 2.
NBC | Blacklist (5.5 mil/0.9) dipped, Svu (6 mil/1.3) ticked up and Chicago Pd (6.6 mil/1.2) was steady.
CBS | Survivor (8.2 mil/1.7) was steady and led the night in both measures. Leading out of an NCIS rerun (4.7 mil/0.6), Criminal Minds (5.7 mil/0.9) improved on last week’s all-time audience low while flat in the demo.
It's pretty cool to see him back in that costume after all these years and it makes me wish even more that Firefly would return one day. I know it will never happen, so this is probably the closest thing that fans will get to seeing Fillion reprise his role after all these years. We'll just have to sit through a couple of episodes of this silly looking show that I've never heard of before!
I'm not sure how exactly this whole thing plays into the story, so
Indeed, Firefly has managed to live on in various forms over the years, from its feature film sequel <a href="https://screenrant.
Nathan Fillion is set to guest-star in a pair of episodes of ABC’s American Housewife later this season, and from the looks of the first-look photo posted on Wednesday, he’ll be paying tribute to his role on the cancelled-too-soon sci-fi cult hit:

This is their second overall deal with the studio. The duo met as met as staff writers on the hit NBC show “Mad About You.” From there, they went on to create ABC’s “Two Guys, A Girl and a Pizza Place.” After its run, they created and executive produced “Do Over” for the WB Network.
They followed that up by joining “American Dad” from its inception and served as executive producers for seven seasons. Additionally, Wiener and Schwartz were showrunners
The Popular and Gcb alum will join Hannigan to play recently divorced sisters who move in together to raise their children under one roof, with the eldest son serving as the de facto “man of the house.” Bibb’s character Charli is described as “a beautiful, narcissistic, possibly sociopathic man-eater who wakes up every morning looking for a fight because it’s the only thing that makes her feel alive.
Dez also was down a tenth from what Match Game averaged in the time slot during the interim.
On the sitcom front, The Goldbergs (5.4 mil/1.3), Speechless (4.1 mil/1.0) and American Housewife (4.1 mil/1.0) all tied their season (maybe series? I’ll check later…) lows, while Modern Family (4.9 mil/1.3) fell 21 and 28 percent from its last fresh outing to mark series lows.
