Susan Sarandon

via press release:

Academy Award® winner Susan Sarandon (Dead Man Walking) will be guest starring in an upcoming episode of MIKE & MOLLY.


  • Sarandon will play JC Small, a literary icon and idol of Molly’s (series star Melissa McCarthy).


  • JC is part JD Salinger with a touch William Faulkner and a sprinkle of Gore Vidal, a beautiful mind and a tortured soul.


  • This famed novelist gives Molly a lesson in writing that neither she nor her family are soon to forget.


MIKE & MOLLY returns midseason on CBS.

  • TV Viewer

    CBS must be thinking it will not be long before Mike and Molly returns, which also means they must think one of their new series will bomb and be replaced-Fast. CBS did not put out a press release for Rules of Engagement until after Partners was axed, so they a giving a hint they are not confident about all four of their new comedy series. They believe one of them will be cancelled and soon after it’s debut.

    CBS was airing “Mike & Molly” at both 8:30 and 9:30 for much of the summer, perhaps prepping viewers for either time slot. If one of the Thursday comedies fail, and my money is on “The Millers”, I wonder if they’ll move a new Monday show in order to keep “Mike & Molly” on Monday Nights. I’m actually kind of excited to see “The Millers”. I expect to love it, but also be in the minority. It just gives me the same vibe that I got from “Partners”, “How to be a Gentleman”, and “Running Wilde”.

    When We Are Men gets cancelled after 3 episodes Mike & Molly will be ready to claim the spot.

    Thanks. I’ll check it out if only to see if Susan Sarandon wears a bra.

  • Networkman

    I’m really looking forward to Mike & Molly this season. I love that they were able to get such a high profile Oscar winning actress on the show. Let’s get this show back on the air asap after How I Met Your Mother.

  • Dan

    My guess is that Mom will get a 24 episode full season, Mike & Molly will replace We Are Men after a few episodes. The Crazy Ones will get 15 episodes and timeshare with Bad Teacher and The Millers will get a few more episodes up 16-20 and timeshare with Friends With Better Lives.

    This way most comedy slots will be repeat free all season.
