Monday TV: Lorre's Ladies (Mom & Molly), Dancing Returns

Anna Faris and Allison Janney

On this day most readily associated with the Wearing of the Green, consider a TV industry green with envy at the success of Chuck Lorre's comedy empire on CBS, which renewed all of his current series last week, led by the terrific and tremendously popular The Big Bang Theory (a powerhouse providing a clout that helps explain why the beyond-past-its-prime Two and a Half Men also made the cut). Lorre's two Monday comedies, anchored by strong female performances, are also back next season — and that's especially good news for fans (including me) of the underperforming, underrated Mom, with its sensational mother-daughter tag team of Allison Janney and Anna Faris as Bonnie and Christy, two generations of recovering addicts raising a family against powerful odds.

Inside the Spooky New American Horror Story: Coven

Ask Matt: Blacklist, Coven, Nashville, Parenthood and NBC's Thursday Comedies

Question: I'm enjoying The Blacklist thus far and would watch it for James Spader's performance alone, but I'm also enjoying the stories as well. NBC is sticking to a formula that has worked before, albeit on a sister network. The intriguing loner, at odds with a government agency, solving the case of the week with the help of his associates, with a through story that's addressed for a few minutes at the start and end of each episode, just enough to keep the serial nature of the story going. Am I the only one who thinks that The Blacklist is Burn Notice with a network budget? If the show is successful, NBC will end up as an expensive version of USA Network. Not there's anything wrong with that. — Rick

Lauren Graham, Naveen Andrews, Sarah Shahi

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com or tweet them to @adam_bryant or @NatalieAbrams.

Sarah and Hank seemed to share a nice moment in the last episode of Parenthood. Could they be getting back together? — Samantha
ADAM:
 Not likely. Remember Sarah's obnoxious neighbor Carl? Despite that bad first impression, Sarah will be wooed by Carl when she attends an event honoring him for setting up medical clinics in Third World countries. (Too bad he didn't exactly invite Sarah as his date.) Making matters worse, Sarah meets a potential new photography client at the event, but she soon learns that her competition for the gig is... Hank.
