Anna Faris, Sadie Calvano
There's babies on the brain on Monday's episode of Mom — for everyone, that is, except Violet (Sadie Calvano), who would like nothing more than to completely forget about the fact that her due date is fast approaching.
"Violet's undoubtedly made mistakes, as every teenager does," Calvano tells TVGuide.com. "But at the end of the day, Violet's a really smart girl. And I do think as the pregnancy comes closer and closer to its end, she struggles with deciding what the smartest choice is regarding this baby, so that she can break the cycle and give the baby the life that she wishes she could have had."
Max Thieriot, Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore
A&E certainly has an eye for talent, with the brooding Chloë Sevigny joining the electrifying Vera Farmiga in back-to-back Monday psycho- (or Psycho) dramas. Unfortunately, the former Big Love scene-stealer is not nearly as well served by the unpleasant formula dreariness of Those Who Kill (10/9c), an adaptation of a Danish series that takes a by-the-numbers approach to some truly ghastly serial-killer action.
Question: When dealing with shows like House of Cards (in which an entire season is available at one time), what's your opinion on how spoilers should be discussed? Is every episode fair to be talked about as soon as the season comes out? Should no spoilers be talked about for, say, a week and then every episode is fair game? Or would you treat it more like a traditional series and discuss only one episode at a time? On the receiving end, do you just avoid all spoilers until you've finished watching the entire season? I'm mainly asking this because I'm only up to episode 6 of the new season of House of Cards and am avoiding any article with a spoiler alert, because I don't know just which episodes they may be spoiling. (Thankfully, so far the biggest spoiler I could have had ruined was a very shocking moment in the first episode. I don't gasp very often at a TV show, but I did then.) — Scott
James Spader, Megan Boone
After the Games, the deluge. Now that Sochi's Closing Ceremony is but a glittery, shimmering memory, time for TV to get back to normal — which means everything new is finally new again. And for NBC, it signifies another big week, as it tries to keep the momentum going, using a new season of The Voice (8/7c) and its irresistible Blind Auditions to fuel ratings on Mondays and Tuesdays, with a visceral assist from The Blacklist (10/9c). Red's latest target: a woman from his shadowy past played by Jennifer Ehle, who'll always be my favorite Elizabeth Bennet (from the 1995 Pride and Prejudice).
Anna Faris and Allison Janney
Christy (Anna Faris) has fallen head over heels for David (Nick Zano) on CBS' Mom — but her home life is also starting to get turned upside down as a result of the new romance.
Anna Faris, Kevin Pollak
Christy (Anna Faris) may have finally connected with her long-lost father Alvin (guest-starKevin Pollak) on CBS' Mom, but their relationship isn't exactly a warm and fuzzy one. And it probably doesn't help matters that Christy's mother Bonnie (Allison Janney) wants nothing to do with her former fling.
Torture! Clones! Betrayal! Sexting! And just sex!

French Stewart, Allison Janney
On Monday's episode of Mom, Christy's (Anna Faris) worlds collide and her worst nightmare comes true when her recovering alcoholic mother Bonnie (Allison Janney) goes on a date with her sarcastic, hard-partying restaurant colleague, Chef Rudy (French Stewart).
Mom fans, get ready to meet Dad!
Stand-up comic Kevin Pollak is set to guest-star as the long-lost father of Anna Faris' character on the CBS comedy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Pollak will play Alvin Biletnikoff, the boyfriend who...
Judging by its suggestive title — "Corned Beef and Handcuffs" — the Dec. 16 episode of CBS' Mom promises to be naughtier than usual.
