2 Broke Girls Pilot Review

Pilot Scoop: 2 Broke Girls

The new TV season is chock full of familiar faces, and CBS's new comedy Two Broke Girls is no exception. Kat Dennings moves from the silver screen to the small screen, but brings along her signature sarcasm in this new series from executive producers Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City) and Whitney Cummings, which premieres tonight.

  • What it's about: Kat Dennings plays Max, a sassy Brooklynite working at a greasy-spoon diner in Williamsburg. When a prissy, down-on-her-luck rich girl joins her (Beth Behrs), the girls strike up an odd couple-style friendship. It's not long before Max and Caroline are living together and saving up for a business of their own.
  • Where it works: Dennings's acid tongue brings just the right amount of sarcasm to keep the sitcom edgy, and newcomer Behrs holds her own as spoiled but scrappy Caroline. The dynamic between them is fun to watch and the setting makes for hilarious hipster jokes aplenty.
  • Where it doesn't: Some of the supporting characters are a little too stereotypical (e.g., Max babysits for a rich Manhattan woman with twins named Brad and Angelina), and some of the jokes are trying too hard to push the envelope (there are jabs at both Stephen Hawking and Duke University).
  • You might like this show if: You're a fan of Dennings, or you're looking for the perfect show to keep the laughs going after How I Met Your Mother.
  • When it's on: Mondays at 8:30 p.m.

I have never heard the word "bitch" so many times in one show. And "douche"? Very classless show. This show is a sad commentary on what we have to watch between 8-9pm. I feel sorry for families with small children. Does anybody remember shows like "Little House on the Prairie", the "Waltons", or even the "Brady Bunch"? Is there really no market for family TV? Very disappointed in CBS--- Parents- this show is PG-13

This show is disgusting and hardly something you'd sit down and watch with your teenager. No class at all to have it on primetime TV...

Cute new comedy with loads of potential but please stop with the disrespectful and disparaging ridicule, i.e. Temple Grandin, Stephen Hawkings. Ridicule in the name of humor is still ridicule! The writers can do better and still have a funny show.

I ACTUALLY REALLY LIKED THIS SHOW...I LIKED THE 2 DIFFERENT 'TYPES' ..THE BLUE-COLLAR GIRL AND THE 'PRINCESS'...BOTH TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING TOGETHER - I THOUGHT THE JOKES WERE CLEVER AND FUNNY...AND I THOUGHT IT MOVED RIGHT ALONG...NO BORING OR LAGGING MOMENTS...I'D DEFINITELY WATCH IT AGAIN..HOPING THE WRITING STAYS AS GOOD! THE NEWCOMER (BETH BEHRS) I THOUGHT HAS ALOT OF POTENTIAL TO BE A PRETTY FUNNY ACTRESS!

The show is very weak and I found the Temple Grandin very offensive. I don't believe CBS has a winning couple this time as Two and 1/2 Men was also a great disappointment.

it looks cute. i love kat and i think that she'll do really well on a show like this. i like the idea of a comedy that's like this since a lot of the shows coming out are serious and trying too hard to be different yet are exactly the same. (i.e. all the lawyer and medical shows)

I also enjoyed this pilot. Kat Dennings is hilarious and I'm glad she'll be on my TV every week!
