Critic Consensus: Mike & Molly is a conventional sitcom that's able to mine some big laughs, thanks to the immensely appealing central performers.

This is a show that is likely to transform through several episodes as more is revealed about the underlying reasons for Mike and Molly's weight. But the well delivered comedy is reason enough for the curious viewer to tune in right now.
The weight humor is less directed at them and more shared with them, and they have nice, low-key chemistry. It's a very warm vision of both of them most of the time, and that's quite rare.
Laughing at 22 consecutive minutes of socially unredeemed fat jokes may leave you feeling as if you've just eaten a 36-inch anchovy-and-pineapple pizza: bloated and yucky.
There's a real sweetness to the tentative romance brewing between Mike and Molly. It helps that both actors, able supporting players in the past are immensely likable and share good chemistry and timing.
The new sitcom Mike & Molly won't change your life, but it will make 30 minutes of it happier and more fun.
