Last week was pretty funny. This week other than Susan Sarandon at the end it wasn't too funny. We will finish the season but wouldn't miss it if it got cancelled after this season.

Agree completely. We used to look forward to this show, now not so much. I really only perk up when the dumb sister and mother are on.

That's what I said. what?

I liked this week's episode with Susan Sarandon (does that woman age ever?)

But the one with them in the funeral home was unbearable. I have never thought dead body humor was funny. I remember a scene in a episode a while back where the sister has a conversation with a dead person while she is doing his makeup and it was done with such a loving spirit - - -
to suddenly have accidental knocking over of bodies for a laugh just felt wrong.

In that episode the sister seemed like the smarter one. They've made Molly into an idiot. I can't believe how they've destroyed a really good show.

It's like the show writers have forgotten all continuity. It's a Chuck Lorre show, but he doesn't seem to care about it.

CBS is showing it Saturday at 8 pm eastern. Is there a sporting event on your cbs channel Saturday night that is bumping it?

At 8:30PM they are showing the 2012 Karaoke Christmas, that probably is the explanation local sports is on 7:30 to 8:30PM.

I haven't seen tonight's episode, but I'm guessing they showed the episodes out of order.

If so, the episode lists I've seen are wrong...they list them in the order they played.

The source I used last week in post 56 was thefutoncritic. My guess is CBS wanted to get the Susan Sarandon ep into sweeps month, and continuity was not a strong concern.

It's like CBS isn't even trying anymore with this show and is just burning them off. Showing them out of order is usually a sign of disrespect towards the show. It was the death knell for Firefly. They've changed the whole tenor of the show. Now it's all about slapstick with Molly and not about their relationships any longer. They have Molly getting worse and worse with credit card debt AND quitting a stable job.

I'm starting to dislike this show. I liked little bits before, and I like Melissa McCarthy (been a fan since Gilmore Girls), but they're taking the show into a parody of itself. I don't know how much longer I can watch.

They've made Molly into a complete moron. She was more of the voice of reason in that family and now that's gone. Carl is less important to the show as well as Mike.

Did Melissa McCarthy threaten to quit unless she was the focus? I thought I read people commenting on issues revolving around her on the show.

Exactly. I too was surprised to find him to be the voice of reason at the poker party. And they also turned my sometimes favorite, the sister, into a shrew with her caw caw caw.

Really screwed up this show.

Sitcoms are often shown out if order. If it weren't for the bedroom change, who would know. I'd bet cbs wants Melissa McCarthy to stay on the air.

He lost some weight over the summer! He used to be all chins and belly, now he's damn near healthy looking.

Certainly when compared to the two leads and the newer guy at the poker table!

The "newer guy at the poker table" has been a recurring character. He dated Molly's sister, and meet Mike and Molly at OA

Yes, I remember the date episode but I forgot the guys name so just referred to him as newer guy.

My wife and I were catching up on this over the weekend. We had watched two of this season's shows earlier and watched another one. At the end, my wife said "You know, this show just isn't very good any more."

I guess we will continue recording them, but might be out on it pretty soon if it doesn't improve.

It really did take a very bad turn this season. I, also, continue to hang in there and hope they get back on track. This was such a great show. I miss the other great characters, even Mike's mother and the dog. I miss more of Carl, and I absolutely love Molly's mother and sister together.

The stepfather always rather creeped me out and, while I'm on the subject, have I had some sort of brain lapse? I don't even remember them getting married at all. I just remember that he moved in and the next thing I knew, they were married.

This weeks episode wasn't too bad for a change. Carl, the sister, Mother in law and Father in law were in it. There were some funny spots. I hope the rest of this season is more like this one.

Looks like they have toned down Molly quite a bit over the last few episodes.

Or, as some if us maintained, she was going through a change of career and her reactions were within character and others were overreacting to an episode or two.
