Trivia / Mike & Molly

  • The Cast Showoff: Katy Mixon has a beautiful singing voice and puts it to good use often.
  • Fake Nationality: The character Samuel, a Senegalese immigrant, is played by Nyambi Nyambi, who is a Nigerian-American.
  • Name's the Same: Mike's partner has the first name of another Chicago-area cop.
    • Made all the more humorous when you see that the very same actor has made a string of guest appearances on the show and was the one who marries Mike and Molly.
  • Screwed by the Network: Despite being a moderate success in the ratings (not as big as Chuck Lorre'sThe Big Bang Theory or Two and a Half Men, but still steady), CBS pulled the plug with a shortened sixth season and never even told the cast. Melissa McCarthy found out about it through a statement co-star Rondi Reed made to the press.
  • Star-Making Role: Was this along with Bridesmaids for Melissa McCarthy.
  • Too Soon: The 3rd season finale was going to air on Monday 5/20/13 but was pulled rather quickly due to how it was going to be about how Chicago was hit by a Tornado. However due to the fact Oklahoma was substantially damaged by a Tornado recently CBS decided to pull the 3rd Season finale out and replaced it with a rerun. The finale eventually aired Thursday 5/29/13.
