Mike and Molly

"Mike & Molly" season premiere review by Suzanne
Mondays 9:30/8:30 c on CBS

I know I keep repeating myself, but a comedy should be funny. Mike and Molly isn't. Worse, it tries way too hard for the laughs.

Mike and Molly are both overweight. He is a cop, and she is a teacher. They meet at an Overeater's Anonymous meeting. His partner is a wise-cracking black cop. She has an obnoxious mom and pothead sister. There are lots of jokes about being fat, being bad at dating, smoking pot, etc. They are just not very funny jokes.

I gather they are trying to sell this as a modern-day Roseanne (two working class fat people), but it needs a lot better jokes to be half as good as Roseanne. Even "Yes Dear" was funnier than this. The only time I laughed was when Mike leaned on a table, and it broke. That should tell you how bad it is.
