It's a killer thriller showdown when two of the fall season's slickest new shows, NBC's The Blacklist and CBS's limited-run suspense serial Hostages, square off Monday (at 10:01/9:01c) in a contest of marquee power and derivative but inviting high concepts. They take on ABC's durable Castle, opening its sixth season (10:01/9:01c) with its star-crossed leads facing a personal and professional crossroads.
Anna Faris and Allison Janney
Like mother, like daughter. That's the premise of CBS' new sitcom Mom, which stars Allison Janney and Anna Faris as dysfunctional mother-daughter pair Bonnie and Christy, who are both recovering addicts and less-than-exemplary parents. But they're working on it.
"Christy and her mom Bonnie are funny, intelligent women that have a bit of mess to them," Faris tells TVGuide.com. "I love that [Christy's] just hanging on by a thread.

CBS released extended previews for its new shows on Wednesday, including Anna Faris' Mom, Robin Williams' new comedy The Crazy Ones, Josh Holloway's Intelligence, Tony Shalhoub's We Are Men, and Toni Collette's Hostages.

Rob Corddry has a bone to pick with President Barack Obama.
After shooting the upcoming third season of Childrens Hospital back in December, the series star, creator and executive producer had to remove a joke delivered by guest star Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) about his having killed Osama bin Laden because, well, it actually happened.
"That ruins the joke completely. Obama killed our joke. Obama killed the No. 1 wanted man in the world, as well as one of our biggest jokes of the season. He couldn't wait until July," Corddry tells TVGuide.com. "I was annoyed. ... I find myself wishing bin Laden had lived for another...
Aml Ameen and Brittany Snow
