CBS' '2 Broke Girls' Gets Full-Season Order
The Beth Beers and Kat Dennings comedy joins "New Girl," "Up All Night" and "Whitney" as rookie series to earn pickups.
Whitney Cummings is two-for-two this TV season.
CBS has given a full-season order to freshman comedy 2 Broke Girls, which counts stand-up comic Cummings among its executive producers. The network sent out a tweet Wednesday afternoon announcing the pickup.
Beth Beers and Kat Dennings star as two 22-year-old women from different backgrounds who wind up waiting tables at the same diner and strike up a friendship with the hopes of launching a successful cupcake business in the series co-created by Cummings and Sex and the City’s Michael Patrick King.
The multicamera comedy launched to 19.4 million viewers and a 7.1 rating in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demo following the heavily hyped Ashton Kutcher-fronted reboot of Two and a Half Men.
The Warner Bros. Television comedy settled in to its time period the following week -- as a lead-in to Men -- dipping 37 percent but still attracting a healthy 11.6 million viewers and a 4.5 rating in the demo, remaining steady in it third week out.
Cummings exec produces and stars in NBC’s Whitney, which also received a full-season pickup.
Broke Girls joins other rookie series earning full-season orders including NBC’s Up All Night and Fox’s New Girl.
