'Mike and Molly' gets shot at 'Men' berth

Here’s your chance to shine, Mike and Molly! CBS insiders have hinted they’ll play around with Monday’s lineup until they know whether Two and Half Men will return with original episodes, and that’s exactly what they’ll do on April 11. Chuck Lorre’s other CBS comedy, Mike and Molly, will get the prime 9 p.m. berth — but for one week only. A repeat of Men (because that’s all they’ve got, remember?) will air afterwards.

If CBS is looking at the possibility of moving Molly to 9 come fall, it will want to see if the freshman comedy can hack it in the anchor slot. More than likely, however, the change is due to the network wanting to break up the string of Men repeats.

Still, what if Molly rocks the slot?

Eh, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The episode focuses on Mike “breaking tradition” by inviting Molly (aka a girl, we suppose) to opening day for the Chicago Cubs.

    This couldn*t happen to a nicer show It is one of my must see comedies on television today. Hope it rocks the time slot.

  • LOL

    They take up two time slots.

    • I’m a jerk…

      because this made me chuckle.

  • Stacey

    It’s not exactly shining in it’s original timeslot. What makes them thinking being at 9 will do any good. If it’s not a show major people want to pay attention in it’s original slot, the Two in Half Men slot won’t work. People watched at 9 because it was Two in a Half Men not the timeslot!

    Mike and Molly blows. More crap from the Lorre sh!t factory.

    • Dave

      Agreed. Chuck Lorre needs to stop infesting the airwaves with his garbage. All of his shows suck big time.

      Well I think “Big Bang Theory” is an excellent show. The only comedy currently on TV thats better is “Modern Family”. But “Mike & Molly” is only mediocre. It doesn’t stand a chance as an anchor. Its crass jokes don’t fit in like “Two & Half Men”s jokes do and the line delivery by the actors is too much like “acting”. They need to work on “BEING” the material and let it come naturally.

  • Kevin

    That’s a good sign for CBS to put “Mike and Molly” on its new time slot and we’re still worried about the fate of “Two and a Half Men” without Charlie Sheen.

    I LOVE Mike & Molly!! What a great time slot for this super funny show. Finally a great show to watch at 9pm. So over 2 1/2 men, how many times can you make hooker, boozer and snarky brother jokes? Apparently 8 years too long. Men passed its prime a long time ago, give a truly funny show its shot

    • Jesse

      Agreed. Also, when Jake got older, the show lost a huge comedic edge. I have seasons 1-5 on DVD and still watch them religiously, but I can’t hang with the newer episodes anymore anyway. Now with “Mike and Molly”, we have fresh faces, fresh situations, and fresh jokes. It’s also inspirational to see that people of their build can find love and happiness instead of watching a lowlife get everything he wants with little to no effort. Don’t get me wrong, “Men” had quite a heyday, but it’s time to move on.

    Crap goes out, crap goes in…

    • Meg

      You can’t explain that!

  • steph

    I love Mike & Molly!

  • RayT

    Mike’s mother Peggy (Rondi Reed) is the funniest part of this show! Her one-liners are amazing. She’s the new Frank Barone! EW, please do a feature on her.

    • Jesse

      “If I get too femenine I start looking like a transexual”. Classic!

  • lori

    I love this show & even though i’ll miss 2&1/2men I hope this show does great in this time slot.

  • w

    Give it a chance, folks – great show!

  • tricia

    Mike And Molly is a great show give them the 9pm slot see what happens

  • SAF

    This is one of the funniest shows…the supporting cast is oftentimes funnier than Mike and Molly..I hope is scores ratings in this time slot so maybe this Charlie Sheen show can be forgotten…

  • Bruce

    M&M is Doomed …. Nothing and no one can replace CS on 2 1/2 men..

    Get your head out of your ass WB listen to CBS head honcho LM and get sheen back under contract asap … or you are all going to lose mega millions in the death of CBS ratings..

  • James Smith

    Mike and Molly is a great little show. It’s just getting it’s feet. The cast is fantastic and MIke is the new Jackie Gleason. His cop partner, Grandma is a hoot. Charlie Sheen a lost cause and will off himself before he’s Fifty. Let’s move on and let’s hope it’s a Sheen free new year 2012
