Three CBS comedies are coming back for the 2015-2016 broadcast season.
“Mom,” the critically acclaimed comedy starring Anna Faris and multiple Emmy Award winner Allison Janney, currently in its second season, is the fastest growing returning series on television.
“Mike & Molly,” currently in its fifth season, starring Billy Gardell and Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Melissa McCarthy, ranks first in its Monday (8:30-9:00 PM) time period in viewers.
“2 Broke Girls,” currently in its fourth season starring Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs, kicks off CBS’s resurgent Monday lineup at 8:00 PM, averaging 9.58 million viewers, up three precent in the time period over “How I Met Your Mother” and its own year ago performance.
The three comedies will be joined by “The Big Bang Theory,” television’s number one comedy, which was previously renewed through the 2016-2017 season as part of a multi-year broadcast agreement.
CBS also announced this week that Emmy Award-winning actress Jamie Pressly has been added as a series regular beginning next season, to the cast of “Mom.” Pressly, who began guest-starring on the series this season, plays Jill, a rich, self-obsessed divorcee who has been through rehab a few times and is working hard on her sobriety with the help of her friend and sponsor, Christy (Anna Faris).
