Last season, the ratings for Mike & Molly dropped once again but the sitcom was renewed anyway — likely in part to give the series enough episodes for a syndication package. Will the numbers improve this time around? Cancelled or renewed for a sixth season on CBS?
On this season of Mike & Molly, Molly (Melissa McCarthy) pursues her 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.

Only discovered M & M about 4 months ago. So far most of the re-runs I’ve seen are season 1-3, some 4. I like this show alot but,,,,, I can’t stand the constant laud, annoying, rude, startling and non stop canned laughter. It’s horrible! I mean Horrible!! Everything is not funny. Even when the dialogue is in the medium of emotion, not quite sincere and not quite funny the canned laughter still burst in at its relentless pace. Some times I turn the volume way down and read the close caption just to keep myself from saying aloud how much… Read more »
Didn’t find the show until season 4. Absolutely love it, so much that I purchased seasons 1-4 on dvd & have preordered season 5.
I too love Mike and Molly, especially the first two or three seasons. I admit that too much emphasis on Molly, after she left teaching seem contrived to capitalize on her movie star status.

As far as syndication, I guess there are enough episodes but Ive watched them all over and over and I’m already tired of them, so not sure if syndication will work. Poor choices made by the writers, producers, and probably… Read more »
