In a Determined Effort to Break Our Hearts, Alison Janney Joins Chuck Lorre Sitcom

Yes. That Allison Janney ("West Wing"). And yes, that Chuck Lorre ("Two and a Half Men"). On the one hand, I'm happy that Janney has landed a job that will probably be around for years, and years, and years, and years, but on the other hand, I fear that after years, and years, and years of being on a Chuck Lorre sitcom, I will no longer love Allison Janney.

The story is, she's joined "Mom." The project also stars Anna Faris (oh, honey), a single-mother forced to move back in with her Mom (Janney). That's pretty much it, although I'm positive Lorre can extract 200 episodes out of the same damn joke. Over, and over, and over.

Damnit, Janney. I hate to use your own words against you, but ...

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
