Did You Know?

Trivia:
The name of the school where Molly teaches is Walter Payton Elementary School in the Chicago Public School System, a fictional school (although the Chicago School District did name a high school, Walter Payton College Prep, in Payton's honor). Walter Payton, an NFL Running Back with the Chicago Bears for 13 seasons, was a Chicago legend who died in 1999 at age 45 from a rare autoimmune liver illness, leaving behind a charitable philanthropic trust which distributes toys to underprivileged children and maintains a cancer and liver research fund.See more »

And Chuck Lorre Gets the Hat Trick, 22 September 2010
Author: hfan77 from St. Louis Park, MN

As a long time PA announcer for hockey, soccer and girls lacrosse, when someone scores three goals, I usually say "And (name) gets the Hat Trick!" That's true with Chuck Lorre, who has another hit show in Mike & Molly, which follows his biggest hit Two and a Half Men. With another hit The Big Bang Theory, he joins Paul Henning and Susan Harris as the only producers to have three sitcoms in prime time.

Now to Mike & Molly, I saw the first episode and I think the show is going to be a hit, thanks to the chemistry between Billy Gardell as Mike and Melissa McCarthy as Molly. They meet at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting and after a number of obstacles overcome, he finally asks Molly out. Also contributing to the hilarity are Katy Mixon as Molly's sister and Swoosie Kurtz as her mom.

What makes the show stand out from other shows with overweight characters is that there doesn't seem to be a lot of fat jokes, it's more of a character driven show than weight driven.

One thing you might notice is that there are a couple of references to the Chicago Bears. Molly teaches at Walter Payton Elementary School (named for the Hall of Fame running back) and the cook at Mike's favorite restaurant wears a Brian Urlacher jersey. It looks like the producers are Bears fans.

Could it be they're falling in love? if you saw the first episode, watch it each week and you'll find out the answer.
