List of Mom episodes

The series follows Christy Plunkett (Anna Faris), a single mother who—after dealing with her battle with alcoholism and drug addiction—decides to restart her life in Napa, California's wine country working as a waitress at the restaurant Rustic Fig and attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. She lives with her mother Bonnie Plunkett (Allison Janney), who is also a recovering drug and alcohol addict, as well as her teenage daughter Violet (Sadie Calvano), who was born when Christy was 16. Christy also has a younger son Roscoe (Blake Garrett Rosenthal) by her deadbeat ex-husband Baxter (Matt Jones). Other prominent character in the series include the co-Alcoholics Anonymous member, Marjorie (Mimi Kennedy). Jaime Pressly and Beth Hall, who play co-Alcoholics Anonymous members Jill and Wendy, respectively, were upgraded to series regular status for this season. The episodes are usually titled with two odd topics that are mentioned in that episode.

Season three of Mom aired Thursdays in the United States at 9:00 p.m. after Life in Pieces in the fall and The Odd Couple in spring.

The season received positive reviews from critics and Allison Janney was nominated a Primetime Emmy Award for her performance.
