Katy Mixon, 'Mike & Molly'

Don't underestimate Katy Mixon just because she looks and sounds like an adult version of one of the "Toddlers and Tiaras" girls. The ditzy-acting perma-sidekick has a stroke of comedic genius in her, and after teasing audiences with it in roles on "Eastbound and Down" and "Two and a Half Men," she may have finally landed a gig with legs. As Victoria, sister to titular Molly, Mixon is responsible for more than her share of laughs on a show that suffers no shortage of hilarity. And seeing her play off of the ever irresistible Swoosie Kurtz is reason enough to preemptively commit to the first season of "Mike & Molly." -- Mikey O'Connell, Zap2it
