"Mike & Molly" on CBS is a comedy series from Chuck Lorre ("Two and a Half Men," and "The Big Bang Theory") about a working class Chicago couple who find love at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting.

Officer Mike Biggs (Billy Gardell) is a good-hearted cop who sincerely wants to lose weight. Mike's partner, Officer Carl McMillan (Reno Wilson), is a thin, fast-talking wise-guy, who despite his teasing encourages Mike on his road to slimness and romance. While speaking at an O.A. meeting, Mike meets Molly Flynn (Melissa McCarthy), an instantly likeable fourth-grade teacher with a healthy sense of humor about her curves. For Molly, focusing on smart choices isn't easy because she lives with her sexy older sister, Victoria (Katy Mixon), and their mother, Joyce (Swoosie Kurtz), both of whom flaunt their healthy appetites and slender figures. Mike also faces temptation at the diner he and Carl frequent, where they've become friends with the Senegalese waiter, Samuel (Nyambi Nyambi), who finds trying to eat less a foreign concept. For Mike and Molly, thanks to their mutual love of pie and the desire to resist it, finding each other may have been worth the "weight."

The cast also includes Katy Mixon as Victoria Flynn, Nyambi Nyambi as Samuel, Reno Wilson as Carl McMillan, and Swoosie Kurtz as Joyce Flynn.

"Mike & Molly" is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series is created by Mark Roberts, who also executive produces along with Chuck Lorre. James Burrows directed the pilot.

I really like the "Mike and Molly" show. However, it did not air at the regular time on Mon., Sept. 12. When is the viewing time next week?

Got spoilers? What did you think of the last show?
