Mike’s partner, Officer Carl McMillan (Reno Wilson), is a fast-talking wise-guy who, despite his teasing, encourages Mike on his road to slimness and romance. For Molly, focusing on smart choices isn’t easy while living with her sexy older sister, Victoria (Katy Mixon), and their mother, Joyce (Swoosie Kurtz.) Tune in, enjoy the laughs and see where their quest for companionship will take them!
