Year-to-year, the sitcom was down by 35% in the demo (vs a 4.8 rating) and 32% in viewers (vs 13.86 million) but last season’s opener had the advantage of airing out of the second Ashton Kutcher episode of Two and a Half Men.


Reference point: The 2011-12 season averaged a 3.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 11.05 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    Mike & Molly is one of my favorite shows! I looked forward to it every week and I know of many others who do as well. How can CBS even think of cancelling it? I am extremely disappointed.
