Allison Janney went grey?
September 14th, 2020 under Chuck Lorre. [ Comments: none ]


Jane Fonda went grey. Sharon Osbune did it too. As did Dancing with the Stars’ Bruno Tonioli. Now it looks like Allison Janney is the latest member of the club.

The actress shared a video of herself on the set of Mom today, and her hair was not its normal red. Instead, it is grey. Will it stay that way, or will the studio heads wig out? We will find out whenever the show comes back.

If she keeps it, then that will be one of the many changes for the sitcom. The biggest being that Anna Faris, who plys her daughter, has quit the show after seven seasons to “pursue new opportunities.

Another change is one we won’t see. That is all the new restrictions because of the coronavirus pandemic. Things like masks and getting tested all the time.

That is a lot of changes, but one thing that won’t change is how funny it is.

Anna Faris quits Mom to ‘pursue new opportunities’
September 4th, 2020 under Chuck Lorre. [ Comments: 2 ]


Mom is going back into production on September 14th. However, one of the leads of the CBS sitcom won’t be on the set. Anna Faris, who plays the daughter, has left the show.

“The past seven years on Mom have been some of the most fulfilling and rewarding of my career,” said Faris. “I’m so thankful to Chuck, the writers, and my amazing castmates for creating a truly wonderful work experience. While my journey as Christy has come to an end, allowing me to pursue new opportunities, I’ll be watching next season and rooting for my TV family.”

According to The Hollywood Reporterw, her character will be written off of the show.

They did not say why she opted to leave but did say it has nothing to do with COVID-19 concerns.

Faris has a successful podcast, Unqualified, so maybe she wants to focus on that fulltime? I am sure we will find out soon enough if it is something more.

UPDATE: Mom co-star Kristen Johnson hinted how they will write Christy off of the show. Johnson wrote, “I can’t say much, but I can promise her character is moving on to an awesome (sober) life. That’s what I was told, anyway.”

The third season will be the charm for The Kominsky Method
July 2nd, 2020 under Chuck Lorre, Michael Douglas, Netflix. [ Comments: none ]


Netflix announced today that they picked up the critically acclaimed The Kominsky Method for a third season. That is the good news, but the sad news is that it will be its’ last season.

The dramedy stars Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin as two friends who are adjusting to life as they get older. Towards the end of the second season, Douglas was diagnosed with cancer. I bet you the series will end with him dying from it. It is a good way to go out.

Chuck Lorre, who created the show, has this to say about his Golden Globe winning show ending, “’The Kominsky Method’ has been a true passion project for me and it’s been an incredible experience to see the warm response from both audiences and critics. I’m excited to wrap up the story with this final chapter.”

Are you sad that we are only getting one more season?

CBS was not Evil to all of their new shows
October 22nd, 2019 under CBS, Chuck Lorre. [ Comments: none ]


While Fox and NBC have announced the fate for 2/3 of their new shows, CBS is batting 100. Today, all of their shows got the news that was just what the doctor ordered, Bob ♥ Abishola, All Rise, The Unicorn and Carol’s Second Act were all picked up for a full season. Wait, what about Evil? Their first season will end with its lucky 13th episode. Does that mean it is cancelled? Not at all, it will be back for a second season.

I think CBS made the right choices. Evil is one of the few broadcast supernatural shows that actually got stronger after the pilot. Last week’s episode went to a place that not many shows will go. It was a brave risk that wound up working. Yesterday, after I watched Bob ♥ Abishola, I hoped CBS believed it enough to keep it around. Today, they did just that. One thing I hope they do on Thursday nights is move Carol’s Second Act, which is a really funny s
sitcom that has shown us a new side of Patricia Heaton, up an hour so it follows Young Sheldon. It is a much better fit with The Big Theory spinoff than The Unicorn. That and I thought the latter was this season’s worst new show.

Young Sheldon needs a hobby, Evil deals with the purest of evils
October 17th, 2019 under CBS, Chuck Lorre. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at 8p on CBS, Young Sheldon is still dealing with finding out that his mentor Dr. Sturgis has been institutionalized at a mental hospital. To distract himself from it all, he is focusing all of his energy on solving a scientific problem. So much so, he does not care about anything else.

His mom (Zoe Perry) is worried about her son (Iain Armitage), so she and his MeeMaw (Annie Potts) tell him to find a new hobby. They try everything from exercise to the Church, and it does not work for him. He finally finds his newest addiction on his own and it is Lord of the Rings. He is so obsessed with it, he will drive everyone else crazy. What will they do?

Meanwhile, Sheldon’s sister (Raegan Revord) has a crush on a boy and she asks her father (Lance Barber) to help get him to like her. The two will finally bond which is really sweet to watch. However, is it sweet enough for her to land that boy?

Tonight’s episode proves that Revord is going to grow up to be a great little actress. Same with her older TV brother Montana Jordan. Actually, the whole cast really does a great job and that is why we keep tuning every week.


Then at 10p, tonight’s episode of Evil is really f*cked up. Yet, having said that, it is the series’ best episode yet.

Psychologist Dr. Kristen Bouchard (Katja Herbers), Chruch employee David Acosta (Mike Colter) and technical expert (Aasif Mandvi) are called in to investigate a boy that his parents believe might be possessed.

Two years ago, their oldest child went from a sweet child to a psychopath. The 9-year-old tried to poison his parents and he is obsessed with killing his baby sister. He has attacked her a few times, so her parents are afraid for her life. They have tried everything to make their son better and nothing has worked.

That is why they have finally called the Church in to see if maybe an exorcism might work. Before they can perform one, they have to make sure he is possessed. They will examine him, his surroundings and his parents to see what is causing him to be pure evil.

Can they figure out what is wrong with him before it is too late? All I will say is you are going to want to find out. This episode is very dark, but it is also very well done.

Evil is the best new drama of the season. It is creepy but it is also really interesting. Check it out, it will possess you…
