Plot Synopsis

In this multi-camera comedy, Christy, a newly sober single mom, tries to pull her life together in Napa Valley, where she raises two children, teenager Violet and eight-year-old Roscoe, while working at a local upscale restaurant. As she's evaluating her life, she realizes her mother, Bonnie, may be the source of many prior issues, because she wasn't the best mom in the world. Now, Christy must juggle relationships with her mom, her ex-husband Baxter, and her children, who have become more challenging. At the restaurant, Christy works with Gabriel, the good-looking but married manager, and Rudy, the hot-tempered chef. The Season 2 premiere of MOM -- originally scheduled for Monday, September 29, 2014 at 8:30pm ET/PT and changed just days beforehand -- debuted on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at 8:30pm ET/PT on CBS.
