About this Article
The new CBS comedy “Mom” will bring back some family memories — if your family life included mom cooking meth or searching for cocaine in the shag carpet. It debuts at 8:30 p.m. Monday, another project from busy producer Chuck Lorre. Given his track record (“Two and a Half Men,” “The Big Bang Theory,” “Mike & Molly”), CBS can hardly be blamed for betting on Lorre again. The pilot quickly tries to establish a dysfunctional cast of characters. Anna Faris is the lead as Christy, a waitress and single mom who’s sleeping with her married boss. It goes on from there.
