The TV Addict Quick-Hit: MOM

In a nutshell: Newly single sober mom Christy (Anna Faris), reconnects with her estranged mom (Allison Janney) in an attempt to make a better life for herself and her kids.

When and Where: Mondays at 9:30PM on CBS (City in Canada)

The Good: The hilarious and highly watchable mother-daughter-duo of Anna Faris (“Scary Movie”) and Allison Janney (THE WEST WING) manage to elevate what otherwise could have been another laugh-free Chuck Lorre sitcom.

The Bad: Despite its lovely leading ladies, MOM is still a Chuck Lorre sitcom. Which means viewers should brace themselves for his trademark over-reliance on juvenile sexual innuendo and penchant for cheap laughs.

The Verdict: Anna Faris and Allison Janney FTW!

Fall TV Preview: THE BLACKLIST EP John Eisendrath Gives Inside Scoop on Fall’s Most Notorious New Show

Red Reddington. Just like the name James Spader, some names invoke an aura of mystery. In this case, the hero of THE BLACKLIST is the world’s most wanted criminal and he has just turned himself in — but he has something different in mind than just sitting in a cell and rotting away for the next 50 years.

The TV Addict Quick-Hit: BROOKLYN NINE-NINE

In a Nutshell: Hilarity ensues at a Brooklyn police precinct when a dedicated, albeit goofy group of cops (lead by an adorkable Andy Samberg), gets a new captain (Andre Braugher) with a lot to prove.

When and Where: Tuesdays at 8:30PM on FOX (City in Canada).

The Good: Thanks to a ridiculously likeable ensemble littered with a cadre of unconventional characters, not to mention a mixture of sharp and funny story lines all but guaranteed to put a smile on your face, this small police precinct in Brooklyn will do for cops what PARKS AND RECREATION did for small town politics.

The Bad: Did you see what we had to see about this show’s lead in?

The Verdict:. Hands down our favorite new comedy of the fall.

The TV Addict Quick-Hit: DADS

In a Nutshell: Childhood friends played by (Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi) see their lives turned upside down when their Dads (Peter Riegert, and Martin Mull) move in.

When and Where: Tuesdays at 8PM on FOX (City in Canada).

The Good: Fans of Seth MacFarlane’s trademark brand of humour (Think: FAMILY GUY, “Ted” and/or his rendition of “Boobs” during this past year’s Oscar Ceremony!) will be right at home with his first foray into the live action sitcom world. [Read more...]
