Last season, Mike & Molly attracted better ratings than the TV series had in its first season. Will that trend continue or will the numbers start to decline? We’ll have to wait and see.
The third season of Mike & Molly typically airs Monday nights at 9:30pm on the CBS network. The cast includes Melissa McCarthy, Billy Gardell, Cleo King, Katy Mixon, Louis Mustillo, Nyambi Nyambi, Reno Wilson, Rondi Reed, and Swoosie Kurtz.

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.
What do you think? Do you like the Mike & Molly TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season?
Please do not cancel Mike and Molly show. It is the best show currently on tv with an excellent and talented cast. We watch each show several times. Carol
Yes leave the show on! I’ve laughed til tears ran down my face! Love it!
Please renew M&M, I look forward to watching it. I would love to see them get healthy together.
Love the show. It’s a break from all of the morgue scenes and dead bodies which are not very laughable
This is a really cute show and much better than “Two Broke Girls” ..please keep it on.
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.
Please renew. my wife and I thoroughly enjoy watching M&M on Monday nights.
Renew. Cancel. All the crappy reality shows!!!
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… Read more »
RENEW!!!!! RENEW!!!! It gets better and better. It’s a recorded series on our TV. I even watch reruns! Awesome show with character unique.
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.
