24 Episodes 2010 - 2011
Melissa McCarthy and comedian Billy Gardell are charming and real as the stars of this engaging sitcom, which tells the tale of a teacher and police officer trying hard to lose weight---and then falling in love. In the opener, Chicago teacher Molly Flynn meets Windy City officer Mike Biggs at an Overeaters Anonymous gathering and invites him to speak to her fourth-grade class. Rounding out the stellar cast is Mike's infectiously upbeat patrol partner, Carl (Reno Wilson), Molly's voluptuous sister, Victoria (Katy Mixon), and their slightly ditzy mom, Joyce (Swoosie Kurtz). And as in most cases, the course of true love does not always run smoothly, with getting-to-know-you dates, dealing with offbeat relatives (including Mike's overbearing and intrusive mother, Peggy (Rondi Reed)), meeting each other's friends, buying the perfect Christmas present and arranging the perfect Valentine's Day assignation. And of course, at some point there's the question of sex. Melissa McCarthy's pitch-perfect season-long performance earned her an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
