Since no one else started a thread for this, I will. After 3 weeks I can honestly say this is one pretty funny show. Seems it has gone under the radar but last week's episode was the best of all the sitcoms I had watched with many LOL moments through out. If you have not seen it yet, watch this episode and you will be surprised how good it really is.

We like it too. Both of the main characters are very likable and some of the one liners crack me up.

Yeah, thats what I thought at first but after watching, I was pleasantly surprised. The jokes they make about themselves is worth giving it a view alone.

This show is really funny. My wife and I laugh at this way more than Modern Family or The Office. His sidekick cop buddy is hilarious and the mom with a glass of wine in her hands all the time cracks me up.

Agreed. I like his sidekick cop buddy too. He is funny. I also like the fact that the show has other sub-plots to keep it going. Like Molly and her mom and sister, and his sidekick cop and his grandmother.

Glad to hear that. This is turning into my favorite new comedy. When Mike went falling down the stairs after being hit in the head with the pan was hilarious. The interaction between his partner and his grandma was pretty good too. Molly's sister is such an airhead but darn nice to look at.

The grandmother of the other cop is the funniest character on the show. I bet we see more and more of her as the episodes pass.

This show continues to deliver the goods!! It is really hillarious and the charactors are very likeable. If your not watching this yet, come on already

Agree! People that didn't bother to give it a chance should really take a look in.

Exactly. It is good to have a genuinely funny show of this nature that doesn't rely heavily on physical sex appeal.

After seeing how crude "Two and a Half Men" has become, this show is a breath of fresh air.

Become? I seem to remember it always being that way. Maybe it's just worse than ever now (I wouldn't know, because I haven't watched it in a long, long time for that very reason).

In case you've been under a rock, you've all probably heard of the magazine blogger that trashed M&M and said it would make her sick to watch it.

http://www.marieclaire.com/sex-love/...-on-television

However, she stated that she had not even watched it.

Had she... she would see it is about a, admittedly, obese couple that know they need to loose weight and have joined Overeaters Anon. While there they meet and form a relationship; which shows that even in tough times, a person can find happiness.

They continue to attend OA meetings, talk about their diets and show that ALL people need loving and the comedy that ensues. It's not like "Jersey Shore" that just makes fun of the orange people for the fun (ratings) of it.

Really, she's never seen it but trashes it?! I see it as addressing obesity in a healthy way as they strive together for weight loss and now comedic love.

The world is not made up of only supermodels.

For the same reasons we have shows about: drag queens, cooking competitions, fashion designers, housewives of "some-big-city", find me a man/woman, survivors, chasers, cheaters, drinkers, diners, miners, "not-the-fathers", hoarders, boarders, homeless shelters, millionaire cribbers, rockers, truckers, swamp log rustlers, alligator catchers, wild animal wranglers, wedding makers, wedding crashers, high school reunions, bachelor pads, cheating islands, song idols, talent makers, pawn shop buyers, weird food eaters, cake creators, etc...

... why can't we have fat people?!

"Can't we all just get along?" - Rodney King

Well, Here's my Sig!!!

^^^^^Sad, she is so shallow This sitcom is really really funny and it reminds me very much of all the great sitcoms from the 70's and 80's. It is really refreshing to see. I myself am not overweight and I have no problem what so ever watching both of these charactors in this show. They are funny and interesting. Those people who cannot get past the weight thing are really missing out on some great laughs. Those people also need to get over themselves and their insecurities.

The conversation between Molly her mother and sister over personal hygiene/grooming was HYSTERICAL!!! There were soooo many veiled references to the female anatomy that because I was laughing so hard and so long I can't remember them all at this point--it was almost like painting a picture with mad libs....

Of all the sitcoms last week, this one ended up being my favorite. I'm liking it more and more and has gotten better with each episode. I agree the mother and sister lines are priceless!

Somehow.... SOMEHOW.... in true CBS fashion, this is the number one new show of the year. Don't know if that indicates how good Lorre is at what he does, or how good CBS is at what they do, or at how crappy the new shows have all been this year. Bit of all three, I'd say.

If you have watched it, you would know why people think it is good!

Watched the pilot, 2nd episode and bit of the fourth. Wasn't my cup of tea... but I'm a big fan of Lorre's other work. Huge ratings again this week; not only the highest rated new show but one of the tops on broadcast TV.
