Tonight in Prime Time
'Mike & Molly'
It's season three for this comedy about a Chicago cop and schoolteacher who met at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting. It's pretty typical sitcom stuff, performed by a capable cast (Billy Gardell, Swoosie Kurtz and the very extremely funny Melissa McCarthy). 9:30 p.m. Monday on CBS (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
