'Mike and Molly' Star Billy Gardell Pays Craig Ferguson for a Shout-Out (VIDEO)

Billy Gardell co-stars with Melissa McCarthy in 'Mike and Molly' -- a new fall sitcom that follows the title characters as they meet at Overweight Anonymous and begin dating. For the funnyman, a visit to 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS) was his first late-night TV appearance. Craig Ferguson probably doesn't know much about Gardell, but the actor and his family are definitely familiar with the host. "My Aunt Judy adores you. Will you say hi to Aunt Judy?" pleaded Gardell. Ferguson gestured for some cash. Gardell rummaged up a $20 bill. The host then got some particulars (like where she lives) and gave her a saucy shout-out. Source & Video

CBS' Mike & Molly Makes a Surprising Casting Choice

I hope CBS' Mike & Molly has some talented makeup people. The new sitcom has just cast 48-year-old character actress Cleo King (Deadwood, Sons of Anarchy) as the grandmother of series regular Reno Wilson, who plays Mike's cop partner, Officer Carl McMillan. Reno is 40 years old himself - thus my great confusion. And this isn't a one-off guest role. Cleo, who I'm told is hilarious in her wig, will play Grandma in seven out of the first 13 episodes. Viewers will learn that Carl lives with his spry nana (who has the Fountain of Youth stashed in her basement?). I'll let you know if one of the Cosby kids signs on to play Carl's mom.

Are Mike & Molly's Fat Jokes Funny?

The creators of CBS' new romantic sitcom Mike & Molly insist that the show isn't about weight issues. "I wanted to write a show about two people at the beginning of a relationship, and that was what intrigued me the most," says executive producer Mark Roberts (Two and a Half Men). Still, the show's nascent courtship begins when city cop Mike (comedian Billy Gardell) meets cute with schoolteacher Molly (Samantha Who?'s Melissa McCarthy) at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting. It's fair to say that much of the pilot episode's comedy stems from the poundage of the two leads. In one scene, a table collapses when Mike leans on it. "I broke a chair before I came over here," Gardell says. "I'm not kidding. It happens. I'm heavy." Executive producer Chuck Lorre (Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory) is confident that any weight-related punchlines are delivered with love. "Hopefully, the humor is self-deprecating and with affection. Some of the jokes at Mike's expense that Carl [Mike's partner on the force] takes, you can see that he really does care about his partner and friend." To Read More Click Here .

'Mike and Molly'

CBS gives a new spin on big love this fall with its new comedy series Mike and Molly. Don't expect Mormons or polygamy practices, though, because this new show is literally about two overweight people who find love in each other at first bite. Set in Chicago, Mike and Molly revolves around Police officer Mike Biggs (Billy Gardell) and a fourth-grade teacher Molly Flynn (Melissa McCarthy), who meet at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting and eventually develop an unlikely relationship. While Mike aims to shed some pounds, Molly just wants to find someone who will love her for who she is. Finding love is one thing for Mike and Molly, but enduring comments and jokes from other people is another. Offering their share of criticisms are Mike's fast-talking partner Carl McMillan, Molly's attractive sister Victoria and mother Joyce, and Samuel, a Senegalese waiter at the restaurant (that Mike and Carl drops by) who finds food a little foreign in his opinion. Mike and Molly also features Reno Wilson as Officer Carl McMillan, Katy Mixon as Victoria Flynn, Nyambi Nyambi as Samuel and Swoosie Kurtz as Joyce Flynn. Source Here

MIKE & MOLLY on CBS First Look

Take a first look at CBS' new series MIKE & MOLLY. After CBS' 2010-2011 primetime TV schedule announcement, it's time to take a closer look at all the new shows that will soon grace our screens. MIKE & MOLLY Synopsis: MIKE & MOLLY is a comedy from Chuck Lorre ("Two and a Half Men," and "The Big Bang Theory") about a working class Chicago couple who find love at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting. Officer Mike Biggs (Billy Gardell) is a good-hearted cop who sincerely wants to lose weight. Mike's partner, Officer Carl McMillan (Reno Wilson), is a thin, fast-talking wise-guy, who despite his teasing encourages Mike on his road to slimness and romance. While speaking at an O.A. meeting, Mike meets Molly Flynn (Melissa McCarthy), an instantly likeable fourth-grade teacher with a healthy sense of humor about her curves. For Molly, focusing on smart choices isn't easy because she lives with her sexy older sister, Victoria (Katy Mixon), and their mother, Joyce (Swoosie Kurtz), both of whom flaunt their healthy appetites and slender figures. Mike also faces temptation at the diner he and Carl frequent, where they've become friends with the Senegalese waiter, Samuel (Nyambi Nyambi), who finds trying to eat less a foreign concept. For Mike and Molly, thanks to their mutual love of pie and the desire to resist it, finding each other may have been worth the "weight." Chuck Lorre and Mark Roberts are executive producers for Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Source & Preview
