Chicago TV Shows Rated By Chicagoness

OUR TOWN: Four network shows—The Good Wife, Mike & Molly, Happy Endings, and Whitney—are set in the Windy City, but how authentic are they?

(page 1 of 4)

A scene from 'Mike & Molly'

Mike & Molly

Mondays at 8:30 p.m. on CBS; returns September 24
A cop and a teacher fall in love at Overeaters Anonymous.

TRUEST MOMENT: Molly’s address is 9425 South Cicero Avenue, which would make her an Oak Lawn resident. The nearby restaurant Rosie’s Drive-In, at 103rd Street and Cicero, made its TV debut when Mike cheated on his diet at the fast-food joint.
BEST CAMEO: Rondi Reed, a 30-year veteran of Steppenwolf, plays Mike’s grumpy mom, a lunch lady at Molly’s school (the fictional Wrigley Elementary).
BIGGEST MISTAKE: Mike celebrates a Bulls victory because the team’s score topped 100, which means fans get free . . . chalupas? Taco Bell may be the triple-digit food of the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Portland Trailblazers, but at the United Center we know that a 100-point win means a free Big Mac.
