'Mike & Molly': Peek behind the scenes of Season 3

mike-and-molly-mike-likes-cake-bts.jpgThe set of "Mike & Molly" looks like a pretty cheerful place to work.

That's the big takeaway from a set of behind-the-scenes pictures CBS and Warner Bros. TV have provided exclusively to Zap2it ( go here for the full gallery). In half the shots (like the one above, from the episode "Mike Likes Cake"), at least one member of the cast or crew is smiling or laughing.

The show returns from its holiday hiatus at 9:30 p.m. ET Monday (Jan. 14) with an episode called "Fish for Breakfast." Molly ( Melissa McCarthy) wants to improve her chances of getting pregnant, so she convinces Mike ( Billy Gardell) to join her in eating better and giving up caffeine.

Take a look at the gallery and let us know what you think: Would you like to hang out with the "Mike & Molly" crew?
