I watched one episode of this, the rest of it, I judge from watching so many trailers on Comedy Central.
It truly is total crap. A waste of Melissa McCarthy's talents to be among a group of such lousy comedy actors such as the guy playing Mike and his irritating cop friend, who chews so much of the scenery, there isn't much of a set left.
If it was aiming to be the next Roseanne, it failed. It was aiming to resemble a comedy, it also failed there
If there any fans out there who can rush to it's defense? Surely fans of this show do not exist...

I'll defend it. Great comedy. Up there with The Middle and Modern Family IMO.

I haven't really followed it but I did catch a couple of episodes one morning when in bed and didn't think it was too bad.

Tough for me to really judge it off of about two or three episodes, but it seems like a decent little show. Some decent laughs but nothing outstanding or ground breaking.

Maybe I've been too spoilt with Frasier and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

I like it. The stupid sister, the dog and the black cop's granny are my favourite characters.

Horrible horrible show. I understand it could be 'big' in America but why oh why to UK TV execs think we need to watch a show with such people in it? When I think about it I get a bit of sick in my mouth.

I've only ever seen trailers, they look dire enough to make me give it a miss! Shame on anyone that could compare it to Modern Family!

well i watch a lot of us sitcoms, infact id say 80% of all tv i watch is US sitcoms and i like mike and molly ive watched every episode so far. its just a fun show, popcorn tv really.

plus i think molly and her sister are both hot in different ways, that always helps to watch a show.

It's fat jokes... the whole time, every single episode. Nothing good about that at all.

Well it's all down to preferences. I happen to enjoy both shows, not everyone will though.

I don't watch it, but I've seen enough trailers to know it's not my thing.

However, what I do find odd is that Mike and his cop friend both played a pair of police officers in Dougray Scott's short lived TV show Heist.

I quite like the actors and the characters. The scripts aren't the most subtle. But it's quite good fun (for some people anyway!).

I remember judging it from the trailers and thinking it looked quite bad, but I gave it a shot and I really like it. Never missed an episode.

I was just about to agree with a comment when I noticed it was my own from a year ago!

I got into season 1 of this thought it was great but this season of it I haven't got into it as well, no idea why possibly novelty has wore off with me sadly

Bet Melissa McCarthy is regretting signing up for this just as her movie career is taking off - she's probably now tied into a contract for years assuming it keeps getting renewed. I've seen it a few times and just don't think it's all that funny. Although if it rates well in the US, then presumably the cast make the big money so doesn't matter whether it's funny or not to them lol

Never miss - but the constant baby storyline is turning me off, need to be more like S1 with Jim the dog having more to do.
