Anna Faris and Sadie Calvano
Just two seasons in, the CBS sitcom Mom has already tackled some not-immediately-funny issues, including alcoholism, gambling, homelessness, and cancer. Even star Anna Faris admits she was shocked when her character's teen daughter turned up pregnant in the second episode.
"I thought it was a joke," says the actress, who plays Christy, a young mother struggling with sobriety. "I couldn't believe that so early on we would go down that road. We put a lot of trust in our viewers."

Posted by BGR8FUL...Cheers to ER for updating us on past characters we still miss. Having Jeanie Boulet (Gloria Reuben) return was a somewhat transparent plot device, but hearing that Doug and Carol are happy in Seattle (with twins in third grade, no less!) was good news.

TNT has given a 10-episode order to Raising the Bar, a new legal drama from Steven Bochco and starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar as a public defender. Gloria Reuben (ER) plays Zack's boss, Jane Kaczmarek (the Malcolm parent currently not cooking up crystal meth) is an erratic judge (what I like to call "The Holland Taylor Role"), and all the while Mr. Belding wags his finger at that reckless young lawyer.
