One might not think that alcoholism and struggling with addiction would make for a great sitcom, but CBS comedy "Mom" manages to deftly find the balance between serious and funny. Star Allison Janney tells Zap2it the writers impress her to no end with "how they've managed to deal with such a serious issue." "It's so great to have this show that has all these women, from all different areas of life, and they're all together because of alcoholism," says Janney. "Alcoholism is the great leveler. Everyone is dealing with the same issue, whether they're black, white, women, men, rich, poor. It provides a great opportunity to have so many different women who ordinarily would never be friends if it weren't for this shared disease they're trying to battle."
