Melissa McCarthy, Kathy Bates, Billy Gardell
Kathy Bates is bringing joy — not misery — to Mike & Molly.
20 SNL stars you've forgotten
The Oscar winner guest-stars on Monday's episode (9/8c, CBS) as Kay, the childhood BFF of Peggy (Rondi Reed
) and godmother to Mike (Billy Gardell
) — or "Meatball," as she calls him. Cheery, fun-loving and very
affectionate, Kay is the exact opposite of curmudgeon Peggy, which means she and Molly (Melissa McCarthy
) hit it off right away, much to Peggy's dismay.
Check out an exclusive sneak peek of Bates' first scene below. Mike & Molly
airs Mondays at 9/8c on CBS.
