The start of the television season is always filled with such promise, such hope, such happiness.  And then, things don't work as initially intended and schedules get flipped around.  The upside of this is that sometimes, shows which were due to return "eventually," wind up returning far more quickly.  Case in point -- "Mike & Molly" is back on the air tonight which isn't what CBS intended when they put out their schedule, but which will make fans of the series awfully happy.

    The world is, as you might be aware, an interesting place.  Every couple of years (it used to be four years but they changed things and started alternating Winter & Summer Olympics every other year), the world gets together to test who is the best at various sporting feats.  That fete starts in just a few days and it means that many TV networks will not air new episodes of regularly scheduled programming during those weeks.  Tonight then is the first February episode of "Mike & Molly" and the last new one until the Olympics conclude.

    Last week "Mike & Molly" returned to our television schedules, and did so moderately more early than CBS had intended.  But, we ask you, does it truly matter why it returned early?  Does anyone even remember the name of the series "We are Men," which disappeared from the CBS schedule and thereby allowed the return of "Mike & Molly?"  We think not.  We are sure, however, that you were jubilant at the return of "Mike & Molly" last week and that you will be equally jubilant with its continued existence here and now.

    Gerald McRaney and Jim Beaver both return tonight for the season finale of this Billy Gardell-Melissa McCarthy starrer.  The episode was initially scheduled to air the same day that the tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma and CBS opted to reschedule as the storyline here deals with a storm in Chicago.  Of course, with the traditional television season being finished, you probably now have less on your plate and can fit the extra half-hour into your schedule. That isn't why CBS took the action, it was out of respect for the tragedy, but it is a result. Tune in tonight and get your laugh on with "Mike & Molly" one last time this season.

    Last season, Mike and Molly (on "Mike & Molly," naturally) focused heavily on their wedding.  It is, quite naturally, a big moment in anyone's life, but there is, of course, a whole lot of stuff that comes after the wedding.  We are going to find out what that post-wedding life looks like tonight.  Mike and Molly--again, of "Mike & Molly"--may now be married, but we have a feeling that their adventure is only beginning.  Get your first glimpse at that new life tonight as season three begins.

    Ah, the bachelor party, that age old tradition wherein people get rip-roaring drunk and lament their upcoming nuptials.  On television though that isn't what tends to happen, it tends to be slightly lower-key (except for bachelorette parties which get wild and crazy), which is kind of like how our bachelor party went back in the day.  Will "Mike & Molly" follow that mold?  Will Mike's dad showing up early throw the entire curve?  Will here actually be a wedding somewhere down the line?  How many questions can we possibly ask that may or may not be answered?

    Tell us, when exactly did you fall in love with Holly Robinson Peete?  Was it back in the day when she was on "21 Jump Street," or possibly in "Howard the Duck," or was it when she gave it her all on "The Celebrity Apprentice?"  Whether you rooted for or against Peete on the reality series, the truth is that you have to admire that way in which she pursued victory.  We hope her character pursues Carl in the same way, because she's going on a date with him tonight, and that could prove interesting.

    The nice thing about "Mike & Molly" is that it isn't one of those 'will they or won't they' shows -- you don't have to wait until season six to see the two crazy kids get together only to face new struggles and then watch the show go downhill quite rapidly once the tension is removed.  No, the show is entirely about them being a couple and the struggles that entails (trust us, those struggles continue on forever).  Oh trust us, there is still a whole lot of tension elsewhere, but it isn't in the 'will they or won't they' area.

    So there's this cop named Mike.  Mike wants to be thin so he joins Overeaters Anonymous.  At OA, Mike meets Molly and it's love at first bite... er, sight.  The two find romance, love, and quite probably a modicum of humor as the series progresses.  We're not going to get that progression tonight however, instead we're just going to get the series premiere (or the first meeting of the couple if you prefer) which still ought to be pretty humorous.  And, the series has Swoosie Kurtz.  You can never lose if you have Swoosie Kurtz.  You're automatically a winner if you have Swoosie Kurtz.  She's like a trump card.  She's like the trump card.
