Better Things

FX | 10:00 pm

Pamela Adlon’s funny and wise comedy about a single mom and her daughters has earned heaps of critical love, plus a Peabody Award, one of the industry’s most prestigious honors. The show underwent a major upheaval during its recent hiatus, however, as Adlon’s co-creator, writing partner and longtime BFF Louis C.K. saw his career crash and burn in a lurid sexual impropriety scandal. He’s off the show now, and Adlon is working with a brand-new writing staff as Season 3 opens tonight with"Chicago," which finds Sam (Adlon) and eldest daughter Max (Mikey Madison) on a road trip.
