Sadie Calvano Talks 'Mom' Season 2, Family And Charity
CBS's Mom - a 2014 People's Choice Award Favorite New TV Comedy nominee - is back for its second season tonight, continuing the dysfunctional but well-meaning escapades of the Plunkett family. We recently caught up with Sadie Calvano, who plays Christy's (Anna Faris) daughter Violet, to ask her what laughs and lessons are coming in season two.

The new episodes don't pick up immediately after last season's surprisingly touching finale. "We ended last season with Violet giving away her baby," she explained. "In season two, you see Violet dealing with the ramifications of that decision. She's...

'2 Broke Girls' Season 4 Premiere Recap: The One With Kim Kardashian

October 28th, 2014 11:09am EDT
with KK
'Max' (Kat Dennings) and 'Caroline' (Beth Behrs) are back, and after four years, they’re still broke; working at the diner by day and working their cupcake window by night.

Just to remind us who we’re dealing with, the opening sequence has the business partners closing up when, who they think is their last customer comes up to rob them, threatening that he’s got a gun. Remember they live in Williamsburg, so it’s a hipster hold-up. Caroline stands behind a physically, mentally and existentially exhausted Max, who tells the would-be thief that he better not miss because, if she’s still stand...

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Old Spice' - Crossing Personal (And State) Lines

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Old Spice' - Crossing Persona
Now The Good Wife fans have seen Alicia kick off her campaign for Cook County State's Attorney, and see the roles reversed from the pilot six seasons ago. As if that wasn't one big image to put into our heads, Sunday's episode gave us another one: Alicia reclaiming Will Gardner's office. Oh, and Cary's in trouble again and Elsbeth is her typical awesomely out of left field self, but mostly, this one was about the chair.

Picking up the plot from last week's "Shiny Objects," Alicia's sexual discrimination case has now become a first-rate cluster since AUSA Josh Perotti (Kyle MacLachlan) is p...

Kelley Wentworth
Since Day One, Blood vs Water has been a tale of two tribes heading in opposite directions. Coyopa couldn’t win a challenge, and they weren’t getting along. Hunahpu was unbeaten and living like kings, but even they couldn’t live in peace. To get rid of the ‘snakes’ on his tribe, Drew threw an Immunity Challenge, and found himself voted out of the game.

After Tribal Council, the Hunahpu tribe were shocked but glad to have Drew out of the game. Jon, as Drew’s friend, worried that he’d be the next to go. Jeremy felt like the right move had been made, and that he was now in the tribe's best po...

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Shiny Objects' - Hackers, Pen
With it having been established that Alicia will run for Cook County State's Attorney, it's time for The Good Wife to get her back into the courtroom. The show does that with a flourish, bringing back some familiar faces to give her some stiff competition, while Diane tries to deal when a hacker gets into the Florrick/Agos/Lockhart computers and the political process drives another wedge into the Florrick marriage.

Elsbeth Tascioni (Carrie Preston) is back and still as quirky as ever, which is driving her co-counsel Rayna Hecht (Jill Hennessy) a little crazy. Especially when the company t...
