Fans of CBS's 'Mom' petition to save show from cancellation

Loyal fans of the show “Mom” are trying to keep it on the air — especially in COVID times. There are more than 27,000 signatures on a petition to “Save the Brilliant Sitcom ‘Mom’!” after CBS announced on Feb. 17 that it will be ending after eight seasons — and one without Anna Faris. The show, starring Allison Janney, centers around substance abuse recovery, so it’s being called a “critical support” during the pandemic, as addicts struggle to stay sober.
