Mike & Molly Cancelled

TVLine Items: Mike & Molly Officially Axed, POTUS' Super Bowl Chat & More

OK, now it’s really official: CBS confirmed on Tuesday that Mike & Molly‘s current sixth season will indeed be its last.

“These decisions are really challenging, and I have a tremendous amount of respect for [executive producers] Chuck Lorre and Alan Higgins, for [stars] Melissa [McCarthy] and Billy [Gardell], the whole cast and crew. They put blood, sweat and tears into this show,” CBS Entertainment President Glenn Geller said at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena. “But I can confirm that this will be the last season of Mike & Molly. I think the fans will be very satisfied with what Chuck and Al have planned.”

News of the CBS comedy’s cancellation was first reported in December, when co-star Rondi Reed wrote on Facebook that the show was ending.

Mike & Molly‘s 13-episode final run airs Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30c.

    Ah, yet another reason to not watch the Super Bowl pregame show.

  2. Rudy Goldblatt says:

    any news on so you think you can dance????

  3. Jennifer says:

    Can someone please explain the appeal of Amy Schumer? I just don’t get it. She’s not really that funny.

    • chadcronin says:

      @ Jennifer – Amy Schumer just has a more unfiltered and she says stuff people like me think but normally most people wouldn’t say, so when we hear it it makes us laugh for her being candid. You have to have a specific personality and she isn’t for those who like things proper and get offended by vulgarity.

      • suzi says:

        I have no problem with improper and even vulgar humor–it just has to be funny. Schumer does not always make that happen for me.

      • Piers says:

        Ditto. Shumer is in a [lack of] class with Chelsea Handler and Lena Dunham. No real talent, so they depend on vulgarity to get attention.

    Mike & Molly should have been given notice and a proper 22 episode Final season with it billed as such. They did this to Medium and I was upset for that. They decided last second not to renew Ghost Whisperer, that was wrong. Firing Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Pete from the Talk after the first season was wrong. They overly sanitized Big Brother to make the paid cameras boring. Just making me want to be more cautious on starting shows on the network.

    Mike & Molly deserves to end and this is how CBS is making bad sitcoms (expect Big Bang Theory) into huge hits. Also, I’m so excited about a can’t miss Carpool Karaoke with Elton John on The Late Late Show with James Corden after the Super Bowl and the post big game edition of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

  6. Mr. Smith says:

    And they ruin yet another pregame show.

  7. BrightLight says:

    Pretty sure the President gets interviewed during every Super Bowl pre-show.

  8. For anyone who likes Pitch Perfect, they should really check out Sing it On. The groups are so talented.

    I just knew CBS’s reduction of their comedy schedule this season (thanks to Thursday Night Football and “Supergirl”) was going to result in the possible cancellation of one of its veteran sitcoms. It didn’t help that they wouldn’t let Melissa McCarthy host the People’s Choice Awards after they let stars of other CBS sitcoms host the PCAs in previous years, and that is not fair. I still want to see Melissa McCarthy host the People’s Choice Awards in the coming years despite the “Mike & Molly” cancellation.

  10. Sarah Nading says:

    They cancel a great show like “Mike & Molly” and leave us with drool like 2 Broke Girls!? Boo!

  11. Denise says:

    I believe every character portrayed their part to the fullest extent. I will miss Mike and Molly. I love to laugh and this show is so amazing and shouldn’t have been canceled. Every character had funny lines. It wasn’t just one person that was trying to be funny. You shouldn’t have canceled a good thing because everyone in this country needs to laugh more.

    CBS is missing the boat with Mike & Molly. This is one the funniest of casts in a sit-com in years and easily the best one on TV today. Have Molly die of a heart attack or a car accident or something and in a few months Mike can meet a nice girl named Millie, or Mary, or Marley or whatever, just keep this cast together and keep mining the laughs while McCarthy goes off to make movies…..we get it.

  13. Jen says:

    Upset this one cancelled…..was very funny and had so much story plot left….like them finally getting preggers….would have been some funny scenes with them with a baby 😞

  14. wsc526 says:

    So many other stupid shows on TV and then a really great one like Mike and Molly gets cancelled. Why????

  15. Joanne says:

    Sooooo upset that Mike and Molly was cancelled and for such a lame reason! These characters are the best and will be scooped up by other networks. I think you made a BIG MISTAKE!!!!
