Anna Faris (right) and Al­li­son Jan­ney give Chuck Lorre’s (Two and a Half Men) slap­stick com­edy a real beat­ing heart. It’s a two-women show, with Faris re­lat­able and very lik­able and Jan­ney scene-steal­ingly funny. Other than the of­ten risque di­a­logue and themes of ad­dic­tion, there’s no rea­son it couldn’t be prime-time view­ing.

In “A Bouncy Cas­tle And An Aneurysm”, Bon­nie (Jan­ney) starts se­cretly hang­ing out with a sober stranger she met while at­tend­ing a wine and cheese fes­ti­val alone. In “Roast Chicken and a Funny Story”, Christy (Faris) begs

Adam (Wil­liam Ficht­ner) to take Bon­nie back de­spite her ques­tion­able be­hav­iour.
