Producers: Chuck Lorre and Mark Roberts

Mike & Molly is back for season four, continuing the story of the romance between Chicago police officer Mike Biggs and school teacher Molly Flynn.  They are both plus-sized people who met each other at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting.  At the end of season two, Mike and Molly got married and now they live together with her sassy mom, Joyce, Joyce’s fiancé, Vince, and her ditzy sister, Victoria.  Mike spends the majority of his time with his wise-cracking partner Officer Carl McMillian.  This season, Molly gets fed up with teaching and quits her job with the dream of becoming a writer, and the couple plans to start a family and buy a house.

Mike & Molly is produced by Two and a Half Men producer Chuck Lorre, who is known for the sexual content and foul language in his sitcoms.  Mike & Molly includes fairly frequent use of profanity: “hell,” “damn,” “bastard,” “ass,” “bitch,” and “Jesus” used as an expletive.  Sexual one-liners and innuendo are frequent, including jokes about Joyce’s boyfriend Vince’s erections and the medications he takes to get them, Molly and Mike’s sex life, Carl’s masturbation, and lots of comments about “getting laid.”   In addition, Victoria is a pot smoker and there are a lot of jokes about her being high. Violence is not a problem for the show. 

Mike & Molly is not recommended for viewers under age 14.
