2 Broke Girls Gets Post–Two and a Half Men Premiere Slot

By
2 BROKE GIRLS is a comedy about two young women who are down on their luck waitressing at a greasy spoon diner who strike up an unexpected friendship in the hopes of launching a successful cupcake business - if they can raise the cash. From left to right: Kat Dennings plays the sassy, street-smart Max, and Beth Behrs plays the former uptown trust fund princess, Caroline. 2 BROKE GIRLS will premiere this Fall, Mondays (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

CBS announced its premiere schedule today, and it includes the not-altogether-surprising move to launch 2 Broke Girls after the season premiere of the revamped Two and a Half Men, instead of giving that slot to the season premiere of Mike & Molly. (The following Monday, September 26, the schedule is back to normal: How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly, Hawaii Five-0.) Broke's mutli-camera format and salty content is actually a pretty good fit with Men, though surely other people are bothered by the fact that one show spells out "two" and the other uses a numeral. How can CBS stand it?
