It’s Mike & Molly from Chuck Lorre, who already has the top-rated Two And A Half Men and The Big Bang Theory on CBS. The early pickup for Mike & Molly, written by Mark Roberts and directed by James Burrows, is extremely rare for CBS, which traditionally orders its new series on the Monday of upfront week. The series stars Billy Gardell and Melissa McCarthy as an overweight couple. Reno Wilson and Katy Mixon co-star.
