  • Patricia Heaton stars as Frankie Heck in this warm and witty single-camera comedy about raising a family and lowering your expectations. Middle-aged, middle class and living in the middle of the country, Frankie Heck is a harried wife and working mother of three who uses her wry wit and sense of humor to try to get her family through each day intact. Frankie's unflappable husband, Mike, is a manager at the local quarry and her sardonic partner in the daily grind that is raising their average - yes, most definitely average - family. 

    In between juggling shifts and picking up fast food dinners eaten in front of the TV, Frankie and Mike raise their kids with love and solid Midwestern practicality. Axl is the oldest, a teenage jock who eats the family out of house and home and walks around in his underwear. Then there's Sue, their extraordinarily ordinary teen daughter who fails at just about everything she tries with great gusto - although now that she's in high school, she has high hopes that things are turning around. Finally, there's Brick, their quirky fifth-grader, who reads constantly and whispers to himself. But through all the madness shines a loving family -and together, they're putting The Middle on the map.

  • Anna Faris and Emmy® winner Allison Janney star in this pulls-no-punches comedy from Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly). Faris plays Christy, a single mom valiantly trying to overcome a lifetime of questionable choices. Now a year clean and sober, she's tested daily by her newly sober mom, Bonnie (Janney). Complicating things further is Christy's 17 year-old daughter, Violet, and young son, Roscoe. Violet has followed in both her mother and grandmother's footsteps by getting pregnant at a very young age. At first determined to keep the baby, Violet eventually decides to give her baby up for adoption. Throughout, Christy tries to remain positive and build a better life for herself and her family.
  • MIKE & MOLLY is a comedy about a working-class Chicago couple who find love just when they think they're destined to be alone. Officer Mike Biggs is an easygoing cop who found his perfect match in Molly Flynn. A former fourth grade teacher now aspiring writer, Molly is an indomitable spirit who throws herself wholeheartedly into every new project -- especially marriage. Mike and Molly still have the happy glow of newlyweds, but the first few years of bliss have had unexpected obstacles: like living in Molly's childhood home with Joyce, Molly's sassy, sharp-tongued mother; Joyce's husband, the ever-annoying Vince Moranto; and Victoria, Molly's party-girl sister. When Mike isn't sharing close quarters with his new family, he's sharing a squad car with his best friend and partner, Officer Carl McMillan. Carl fancies himself the quintessential tough Chicago cop, but he's really just a pussycat who wears his heart on his sleeve. Mike and Carl wouldn't be complete without their friendship with Samuel, a Senegalese waiter whose dry wit and diner food keeps the cops both fed and in their place. Not to be forgotten, however, is Mike's mom, Peggy -- a cantankerous old coot who would rather her baby boy move back in with her and her scruffy dog, Jim. All six of these crazy, loving and hysterical people need Mike and Molly in the very own special way. It's a wonder our charming couple are able to find their own little piece of happiness. But they always do.
