NICKELODEON ADDS “MIKE & MOLLY” TO NICK AT NITE’S HIT COMEDY LINEUP BEGINNING OCT. 4

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Oct. 1, 2021 – Nickelodeon today announced the addition of the Emmy(R) Award-winning comedy series, Mike & Molly, from Warner Bros. Television, to its Nick at Nite programming lineup beginning Oct. 4. Joining Warner Bros. Television hit sitcoms, including the Emmy (R) Award-winning series Friends and TV’s number-one comedy series Young Sheldon, all six seasons (127 episodes) of Mike & Molly will bow on Nickelodeon’s nighttime programming block through 2025, and will air regularly weekdays from 2 a.m.- 4 a.m. ET/PT.

Year to date, Nick at Nite ranks as cable’s top network with Women 18-49 and is also currently delivering its highest share of Adults 18-49 since 2016. The highly successful Nick at Nite programming block of family comedies also includes popular Warner Bros. Television series Mom.

Billy Gardell and Melisa McCarthy star in this comedy about a working-class Chicago couple who had almost given up on love… but then found each other. Officer Mike Biggs (Gardell) is a good-hearted cop who works the beat with his fast-talking, wise guy partner, Officer Carl McMillan (Wilson). When he least expected it, Mike met Molly Flynn (McCarthy), an instantly likeable fourth grade teacher with whom he was immediately smitten. Their relationship blossomed, and after realizing they were meant for one another, they got married. Both Mike and Molly live with Molly’s sexy older sister, Victoria (Katy Mixon), and their flirtatious, wine-loving mother, Joyce (Swoosie Kurtz). Mike and Carl frequent a diner where they’ve become friends with Senegalese waiter, Samuel (Nyambi Nyambi). Mike’s other friend is Harry (David Anthony Higgins), who he met at a Cubs game. Often, Mike and Molly’s relationship is complicated by interference from his mom, Peggy (Rondi Reed), Carl’s grandma (Cleo King) and Joyce’s husband, Vince (Louis Mustillo), who offer unsolicited advice on love. Aside from living under the same roof as his in-laws, Mike has to deal with his mom, his partner, Molly’s family, and supporting his wife while riding the roller coaster of being married to a teacher-turned-aspiring author.

Created by Mark Roberts and executive produced by Chuck Lorre and Al Higgins, Mike & Molly is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc. and Warner Bros. Television.

Nickelodeon is commemorating 25 years of its groundbreaking animated series Blue’s Clues, which launched Sept. 8, 1996, with a one-of-a-kind nostalgic music video titled “You Can’t Spell Blue without YOU,” featuring Blue’s Clues & You! star Josh Dela Cruz and former Blue’s Clues hosts, Donovan Patton and Steve Burns, alongside real-life fans from various generations who grew up watching the series. Available to view on Nickelodeon and the Nick Jr. channel and across Nick Jr.’s social media platforms, the music video was directed by Steve Burns.

In “You Can’t Spell Blue without YOU,” Blue and the Blue’s Clues hosts acknowledge the generations of fans throughout the years through song. The video features a series of images and art from past and present viewers as well as fans all grown up holding up photos of themselves as little kids.

With critical praise from educators, parents, and preschoolers, Blue’s Clues has generated an enormous global fanbase over the years in over 160 countries and more than 20 languages. Blue’s Clues drew acclaim and high ratings for its unique interactivity that helped change the way kids watch television and has remained one of the most popular preschool shows of all time. The landmark series also raised the bar in preschool television by exploring advanced subject matter such as sign language, geography, physics, emotions, and anatomy. The show is the recipient of numerous awards including Peabody Awards, Parents Choice Awards, Television Critics Association Awards and Prix Jeunesse.

The legacy and lasting impact of the series continues with the remake of Blue’s Clues & You! in 2019, which has a new generation of preschoolers searching for clues with beloved puppy Blue and new live-action host Josh (Josh Dela Cruz). The series features new CG-animation for Blue and Magenta, brand-new elements and refreshed iconic items from the original series including an updated Handy Dandy Notebook equipped with smartphone technology and the return of fan-favorite characters. Blue’s Clues & You!, produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank, Calif., was recently picked up for a fourth season and nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards. Currently in its second season, the show airs weekdays at 11 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
