CBS’s half-hour Monday night comedy 2 Broke Girls has been picked up for a full first season. The network says the show is “the top new series in both viewers (15.50m) and adults 18-49 (5.8/14), winning its Monday (8:30-9:00 PM) time period in key demographics.” So, obviously, giving the show a full season pick up was pretty much a no-brainer.
Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs star as the two broke girls, with Matthew Moy, Jonathan Kite and Garrett Morris in supporting roles. 2 Broke Girls was created by Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings.
2 Broke Girls is a comedy about two young women waitressing at a greasy spoon diner who strike up an unlikely friendship in the hopes of launching a successful business – if only they can raise the cash. Sassy, streetwise Max Black works two jobs just to get by, one of which is waiting tables during the night shift at the retro-hip Williamsburg Diner. Sophisticated Caroline Channing is an uptown trust fund princess who’s having a run of bad luck that forces her to reluctantly give waitressing a shot. At first, Max sees Caroline as yet another in a long line of inept servers she must cover for, but she’s surprised to find that Caroline has as much substance as she does style.
When Caroline discovers Max’s knack for baking amazing cupcakes, she sees a lucrative future for them, but they first need to raise the start-up money. While they save their tips, they’ll stay at the restaurant, working with Oleg, an overly flirtatious Russian cook; Earl, a 75-year-old kool-kat cashier; and Han Lee, the new, eager-to-please owner of the diner. Working together, these two broke girls living in one expensive city might just find the perfect recipe for their big break.
