CBS announced today that comedy Mike & Molly has been renewed for a third season. The network also announced a slew of other renewals, but the show's lead-in, Two and a Half Men has not yet been confirmed to return. CBS has only stated that discussions are ongoing regarding future seasons of the show.
Mike & Molly has fared well following Two and a Half Men on Monday nights for the previous two seasons. The show manages to hold a good portion of its lead-in's audience on a regular basis, which has kept CBS competitive in the 9:00-10:00pm time slot.
