There's truly nothing Allison Janney can't do right now.

The Mom and Masters of Sex double-Emmy winner teamed with co-star Anna Faris to take on a retooled American Ninja Warrior course during Friday's Ellen show, and the results, as you'd expect, are amazing.

While Faris took a different approach to the obstacle course — which included a version of the show's trademark Warped Wall and dancing stones — Janney went all out for it and with little help really owned the course.

The recently concluded sixth season of the NBC competition series was the Year of the Woman, where 5-foot-tall former gymnast Kacy Catanzaro became the first woman to ever successfully climb the 14-foot Warped Wall. Catanzaro, who made it to the finals, was eliminated in Stage I when she didn't have the leg span to defeat the spider crawl.

For CBS' Mom, meanwhile, the series is in the midst of a four-week trial run on TBS, which is airing the entire first season with the hope to expand the show's regular viewership ahead of its second season. Season two returns to CBS on Monday, Sept. 29 on CBS.

Watch Janney take on the Ninja Warrior course — with play-by-play from Ellen DeGeneres and ANW co-hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbaja-Biamila — in the clip below.
