NEW YORK (AP) — The CBS comedy “Mom” signed off after eight seasons last week before 6.2 million viewers, the biggest audience of its final season.
The Chuck Lorre-produced comedy starring Allison Janney ended with her title character in an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. Anna Farris, who was the series co-star for seven seasons playing Janney’s daughter but left for other projects after last year, did not make an appearance in the finale.
In the quick “vanity card” that appears with the final credits, Lorre wrote, “For 170 episodes, we wrapped jokes around hope … Thank you for your support.”
With another television season winding down, CBS was the most-watched network in prime time last week, averaging 5 million viewers. NBC had 3.7 million, ABC had 2.9 million, Fox had 2.3 million, Univision had 1.29 million, Telemundo had 1.27 million and Ion Television had 930,000.
