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.

    I’m not sure what is going at CBS but dropping Mike and Molly and keeping 2 Broke Girls and 2-1/2 Men doesn’t set well with me. I loved Vegas and Mike and Molly was my favorite comedy. I’ve gotten away from CBS and am watching a lot more on TNT and USA and will continue to do so. Some of the comedies haven’t been as funny as in the beginning. Maybe new writers? I will continue to watch Criminal Minds, Both NCIS’s and the Good Wife. Little tired of Red John on the Mentalist. So catch him already and move on. CBS you might be the best but there are still a lot of us older people. I’m sure the new agers will win out but we watch TV too. When they cancelled Vegas that pretty much did me in.

    RENEW!!!!! RENEW!!!! It gets better and better. It’s a recorded series on our TV. I even watch reruns! Awesome show with character unique.

  3. Christine says

    Please, please, please bring back this show. I really find this show really funny, there is not an eposide that I do not laugh through. This show hits home as by husband is a retired Chicago Police Office and both of my boys are on the force. Please bring this back as watching this show is like my family.

  4. Christine says

    Please, please, please bring back this show. I always laugh during this show, it is one of the few shows that really make me laugh. This show hits home as my husband is a retired Chicago police officer and both of my boys are on the force, so as you can see it’s like being at home. Please bring it back.

  5. Julie Camien says

    Love this show! It is the only show that truly makes us laugh. All the characters are great! Please don’t cancel.

  6. Love says

    It was the show that got me to start looking at that local network channels aging for programs to watch. I think it fun. I laught a lot, to the point I can not watch it when my wife is a sleep.

  7. will says

    Best show on CBS, wish they had more of mike’s mom in the show this season. She and molly’s mom’s boyfriend are the funniest part of the show. Without mike and molly makes for a very boring Monday night on tv.

  8. Jim says

    Mike & Molly is one of the funniest shows on TV today. The acting is superb. The writing is exceptional. There have been very few shows ever where by mere facial expressions alone you burst out laughing at a particular situation. ‘All in the Family’ was one and M&M is another. Please renew the series and keep it going.

  9. Nettie says

    Love Mike and Molly, great cast.

    keep it going. love everyone in the cast. Writing is awesome.

    please keep it going…..

    I think M & M is one of the funniest shows on TV. I am a great fan of american comedy shows such as Everybody loves Raymond and I think M & M could give it a good run for its money. All the characters are great and the chemistry is amazing , cannot wait for another series. I think we get them much later in England
