mike molly season 3 finale melissa mccarthy billy gardell 'Mike & Molly' Season 3 finale recap: Disaster delayed a forgettable finishThe “Mike & Molly” Season 3 finale may have aired a little later than expected, but CBS gave it a “Big Bang Theory”-assisted scheduling boost to ensure maximum viewership.

The episode saw Mike (Billy Gardell) dealing with the aftermath of his mother, Peggy (Rondi Reed), breaking up with his boss, Captain Murphy (Gerald McRaney), as a tornado headed for Chicago. With disaster looming, Mike revealed to Molly (Melissa McCarthy) that he secretly went into business with stepfather-in-law Vince (Louis Mustillo) in case they needed extra money for in vitro fertilization treatments. Of course that didn’t turn out very well: the ostriches Mike and Vince bought wound up getting loose in the storm. And Murphy showed up at Peggy’s door to declare they’re not over yet.

Otherwise it was a rather quiet finale, with no major cliffhanger or standout event to keep fans buzzing during what will be an unusually extended hiatus. While Season 4 of “Mike & Molly” is officially a go, the show doesn’t yet have a spot on CBS’ 2013-14 schedule.
