CBS has picked up Chuck Lorre's new comedy "Mom" for a full season, the network announced today.

Deadline first reported the news that CBS would order the multicamera sitcom to series ahead of the network's upfronts presentation to advertisers on May 15.

CBS's "Mom," starring Anna Faris as a newly sober single mom who blames her problems on her own mother (Allison Janney), has maintained its buzz throughout the pilot season race, and was considered by many to be an early lock for a pickup thanks to the caliber of Lorre and its cast.

"Mom" is reportedly being considered for the 8:30 p.m. Monday slot with "How I Met Your Mother" as a lead-in, but this likely won't be confirmed until CBS unveils the rest of its lineup next week.

CBS has also picked up three dramas -- "Lost" alum Josh Holloway's "Intelligence"; Jerry Bruckheimer's "Hostages," starring Toni Collette; and "Reckless" from "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke -- and four more comedies -- the Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar vehicle "Crazy Ones"; the Will Arnett-fronted comedy "The Millers"; "We Are Men," starring Kal Penn, Jerry O'Connell and Tony Shalhoub; and "Friends with Better Lives," starring James Van Der Beek, Brooklyn Decker and Kevin Connolly.

Which of CBS's new shows will you be watching -- "Mom," "Crazy Ones," "The Miller," "We Are Men," "Friends With Better Lives," "Intelligence," "Hostages" or "Reckless"? Sound off in the comments!
