This season, CBS decided to delay Mike & Molly until mid-season or until one of their new shows was cancelled (the latter didn't take long). How will the sitcom do this season? Could it be cancelled or is it almost guaranteed to be renewed because of syndication profits? Time will tell!
On this season of Mike & Molly, Molly (Melissa McCarthy) has quit her teaching job to pursue a career as a writer while Mike (Billy Gardell) continues working as a cop. The rest of the cast includes Swoosie Kurtz, Katy Mixon, Louis Mustillo, Reno Wilson, Cleo King, Rondi Reed, Nyambi Nyambi, and David Anthony Higgins.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data »
Warner Bros has set Oscar winner Susan Sarandon (Dead Man Walking) to guest in an upcoming episode of Mike & Molly. She’ll play Jc Small, a literary icon and Molly’s idol, described as part Jd Salinger with a touch of William Faulkner and a sprinkle of Gore Vidal with a beautiful mind and tortured soul. The famed novelist gives Molly a lesson in writing that neither she nor her family are soon to forget. Mike & Molly, starring Melissa McCarthy, Billy Gardell, Katie Mixon, Swoosie Kurtz and Reno Wilson, returns midseason on CBS. Sarandon is repped by ICM Partners. »

Mike & Molly has an old school, blue collar sitcom vibe, but while the situation may be well worn, the cast is pretty stellar, with the amazing Melissa McCarthy, Swoosie Kurtz and Katie Mixon as Molly's dimwitted sister Victoria being particular standouts.
Actor David Anthony Higgins plays Harry, a guy Mike & Molly met through Overeater's Anonymous. He's sweet, socially awkward and throughout Season 3 he's had an apparent crush on Victoria. Their relationship took a major turn on last night's episode "St. Patrick's Day". We've got a clip courtesy of CBS in case you missed it...
Any Mike & Molly fans out there? What did you think of last night's episode? Did you see this development with Harry coming, and what are the odds he sticks around as a recurring character?Television Tags: TelevisionVideo Tags: watch videoTags: The BacklotMelissa McCarthyMike & MollyKatie MixonDavid Anthony HigginsIMDbTeaser Photo: »
