Fresh off MOM’s third season renewal, the CBS comedy has promoted Jaime Pressly to a series regular. (The promotion will start next season.)

Marisa’s Top 14 Shows of 2014

Comments Off on Marisa’s Top 14 Shows of 2014

It was another great year for television, and to celebrate that, I made my list of the top shows in 2014.

As per usual, my annual disclaimer: I literally can’t watch every show, and so some shows that probably should be here (like TRANSPARENT) didn’t make the cut because I couldn’t catch up in time. (But on the bright side, I caught up on every show I name-checked last year as not being caught up on.)

So, these are my top shows of the year…

MOM Season 1 Finale: Sadie Calvano Previews ‘Smokey Taylor and a Deathbed Confession’

Comments Off on MOM Season 1 Finale: Sadie Calvano Previews ‘Smokey Taylor and a Deathbed Confession’

mom-featured

MOM has never been shy about being a different, more serious, kind of sitcom when it wants to be — after all, few multi-cam series tackle teen pregnancy, addiction, and cancer in their first year — and when the season concludes this Monday, the stakes are high for all of the characters.

“I think it is undoubtedly the most emotionally-charged episode of the season,” Sadie Calvano (Violet) previewed. “And I think that there’s lots of things that come to surfrace this episode that I think every character has wanted all season. So I’m really excited for the audience to take that journey with us, because we had such a fun journey shooting it.”

As the promos have teased, one of the things fans can expect from the finale is for Violet to give birth. And since Calvano has yet to experience childbirth in real-life, she set out to research how to play those scenes.

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

January 27, 2014 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Mom

mom-featured

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.
