“Mom” Renewed for Season 6. Will The Show Bring on More Female Directors?

“Mom”

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

TV Ratings: 'Empire' Drops, Still on Top; 'Alex, Inc.' Dims

Fox nabbed another Wednesday win thanks to a returned Empire, though the drama shed three-tenths of a ratings point from the previous week.

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...

ABC TV Shows: 2017-18 Viewer Votes

Every year, the ABC television network introduces new TV series, which are either cancelled or renewed by the season's end. Likewise, among existing shows which were initially renewed and returned for another installment, there are always some under-performers that end up as the television vulture's TV dinner du jour. Although everyone understands the Nielsen ratings usually play a big role in TV cancellations and renewals, most fans do not get to participate in that system. Since so many viewers' opinions do not factor into the Alphabet Network's programming decisions, we are offering you the chance to submit your own ABC TV show ratings to us, instead. You can vote on the following ABC TV series that have premiered (so far) during the 2017-17 television season: America's Funniest Home Videos, American Housewife, American Idol, Alex, Inc, The Bachelor, The Bachelor Winter Games, Black-ish, Child Support, The Crossing, Dancing

'Splitting Up Together': TV Review

At this moment, nobody on TV does family sitcoms as well as ABC.

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...

Nathan Fillion Suits Up Again as Firefly's Captain Malcolm Reynolds in American Housewife

Nathan Fillion is suiting back up as Captain Malcolm Reynolds in the series American Housewife, which is a show I have never seen. Fillion is said to be appearing as himself in the episode, but as you can see in the photo above, his appearance will be a callback to his days on the classic Firefly series, which met an untimely demise.

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
