CBS Sets Mike & Molly Season 5 Premiere in The Millers Timeslot

Mike & Molly are moving into The Millers‘ former home.

The CBS comedy, which stars Melissa McCarthy and Billy Gardell, will return for Season 5 on Monday, Dec. 8 at 8:30/7:30c, replacing the recently axed Will Arnett-Margo Martindale vehicle.

A quartet of Mike & Molly Season 4 episodes will rerun the preceding Monday, Dec. 1, from 8 to 10 pm.

Sophomore sitcom The Millers was abruptly cancelled last Friday.

  1. millers sucked says:

    yay bye bye bad show, hello funny

  2. Sam says:

    Yes! Finally! Such a great show. I’m excited to have it back.

  3. thisismenow says:

    So what happens when Mike & Molly fails in the same timeslot?

    • Tran says:

      Two words: who knows?

    • ChicagoDan says:

      Unlikely that will happen. M&M already has been paired with 2BG and did fine. Plus the show does have its own following. It’s a safe bet. (Guaranteed it will do better than wretched TM and, while I’m not sure it will really help Scorpion, it can’t hurt it.)

    • Klo says:

      Now that it’s in syndication it can afford to have lower numbers, as long as they’re not too low, because syndication money can make up for lost ad revenue.

  4. Tran says:

    Very happy to see The Millers bidding adieu to CBS and welcome back Mike & Molly. Great one hour comedy block on CBS Mondays: 2 Broke Girls and Mike & Molly. Wondering if Mom is staying put on Thursdays for the time being.

  5. GuessWhat says:

    Melissa deserves better material than M&M.
    Watched one ep and it felt so 1980s quality to me.
    No one else feels that way?!

  6. abz says:

    While I’m excited for it to finally come back, it’ll be annoying for it to come back and then go on break again for a couple weeks during the holiday break.

  7. Chad Cronin says:

    Yay! I wanted this back for a while. Can’t wait!

  8. Irene Conner says:

    I love the millers

  9. bev says:

    Love the Miller’s

  10. Phillip says:

    What does that mean for Mom? Is it staying put behind TBBT for the entire season?

  11. Stephanie says:

    My family and I absolutely love Mike n Molly. Please keep their comedy coming. The Mike n Molly show, we enjoy because my family can relate to the characters. We watch reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond and laugh as if we are watching for the first time, same with Mike n Molly……can’t get enough of. We love that show! :)

  12. pam says:

  13. mert says:

    millers was good show until he new guy came on. they did not need him. silly!

  14. teegee says:

    Love Mike & Molly. The Millers not so much. My question is though, why M&M started season five so late into the year?

  15. So happy Mike and Molly are back! Cast and writing are so funny! Great show! Our family loves it!

  16. gretta says:

  18. Jeanne says:

    Sure did hate to see “The Millers” leave. One of our favorites. Ready for “Mike and Molly” to return.

  19. Kia Mackey says:

    I am so happy that the new season of Mike and Molly begins tonight. I am a big fan of the show. I watch the reruns Monday thru Sunday on KCAL 9.

  20. Pam says:

    Love the Millers, at least they have some comedy, why wouldn’t they cancel some of the other shows like Broke Girls, Mom, and some of these sick reality shows!!!We are smarter people.

  21. Geno Baduechi says:

    I am so happy that mike & Molly are still on the air for myself and my son love that show we watch it everytime it’s on. No Matter how many times a day we would watch Mike & Molly 24/7 if it was on.
    We love both of them keep them on the air forever .

  23. Tish says:

    So sad to see The Millers canceled. I loved the chemistry between all the actors. That was the only show aside from Mike & Molly I watched on CBS.

  24. Dorothy Belland says:
