With James Corden’s LATE LATE SHOW putting on a primetime special on Monday night, the series went big with one of their recurring segments—CROSSWALK THE MUSICAL: THE SOUND OF MUSIC.

But since they were going big leagues, Corden got a bit more help than normal. “The network has insisted we add some CBS stars to the cast, because apparently CBS doesn’t think I’m capable of handling primetime on my own,” he joked in the video below. To assist him? MOM stars Anna Faris and Allison Janney, as well as THE BIG BANG THEORY‘s Kunal Nayyar, and YOUNG SHELDON’s Iain Armitage.

And, well, it was hilarious. Watch their performance of the classic musical! Read more

MOM’s Adam (William Fichtner) and Bonnie (Allison Janney) have been through a lot during their courtship, but the Thursday, April 5 episode of the CBS comedy could be their biggest couple test yet.

When Adam loses a close friend, Bonnie is tasked with taking care of her fiancé as he copes with his loss. And, well, that goes about as well as you’d expect.

“Bonnie is not used to having to be the one who is the rock,” Janney said before the show’s PaleyFest panel in the video below. “She says she’s the river; she likes Adam to be the rock…she has a little bit of trouble putting on those shoes. It’s kind of funny to see her deal with that.”

Comments Off on MOM: The Cast Previews How Their Characters are Handling Jill Falling Off the Wagon

Throughout MOM’s five seasons, the cast and writers of the CBS series have seamlessly injected natural drama into the comedy series, and the current storyline is no different. As Jill (Jaime Pressly) struggles to get back on the wagon, she leans heavily on Christy (Anna Faris), Bonnie (Allison Janney), Marjorie (Mimi Kennedy), and Wendy (Beth Hall).

Before the comedy’s recent PaleyFest panel, Pressly previewed how her character was handling the bump in the road, plus Janney, Kennedy, and Hall teased their characters’ reaction to Jill’s setback.

MOM: Allison Janney on the Challenges of Playing Bonnie, Plus Which Actors She Wants as Love Interests

Allison Janney is no stranger to television (she has nearly 200 episodes of primetime TV under her belt!), but when I caught up with her at a recent WBTV TCA comedy event, she couldn’t stop gushing about playing Bonnie on her new CBS series, MOM.

“I’m loving it,” she raved. “I’m loving the half-hour [multicam sitcom format]. It’s like a carnival, the whole fast-paced atmosphere, it’s very different from an hour-long drama show. I have to tell you, it’s so much fun. I love this job, I love these people.”

“I’m excited to learn who Bonnie is every episode I get,” Janney continued. “I love it, and sometimes it’s a little awkward for me, because I’m so different from her, so it’s like, ‘Really? I’m going to say that? That’s so mean! I don’t want to say that.’ But then I say it, and I hear the laughter, and then I go, ‘Okay, I guess that’s just Bonnie!’ Sometimes it’s a little uncomfortable playing her, and it’s been a little challenging getting used to playing a character this inappropriate and obnoxious. And I’ve been grateful for the moments where you see her vulnerability and you see where she comes from, so you understand why she is the way she is, a little bit. ”

As Janney feels her way around this new character, she told me some of her more long-term fans are also having some transitional issues getting used to Bonnie, too.
