Are you ready for Melissa McCarthy to dominate CBS's comedy lineup as hard as she rocked the entirety of last year? The Mike & Molly star just sold her second half-hour show to the network, a sitcom THR says revolves around a 37-year-old man living with his parents. This follows McCarthy's September sale of a half-hour comedy project about a mid-40s woman in a midlife crisis. Both shows were co-written by McCarthy's husband and Bridesmaids co-star Ben "Air Marshall Jon" Falcone. We're thisclose to devoting a significant amount of every day toward merrily cheerleading for Melissa McCarthy.
