The ‘latest and greatest’ in “Fat TV” was rolled out on CBS last night. “Mike and Molly” is a 30-minute sitcom that’s about two hugely likable people who meet at an Overeaters Anonymous (OA) meeting. It’s your basic boy meets girl story, with a heavy twist, as both are ‘plus-sized.’
The main characters of the show, Police Officer Mike Biggs (Billy Gardell) and fourth-grade teacher Molly Flynn (Melissa McCarthy formerly Sookie from The Gilmore Girls), toss ‘weighty’ jokes back n’ forth, as does the supporting cast.
There’s been a lot of buzz on the Internet today about Mike and Molly’s fat jokes, some finding them offensive. Did you?
