Syma Checks Out New Shows On CBS This Fall
This week, CBS Network rolled out our Fall 2011 schedule. There are a few new shows: “The Gifted Man,” “2 Broke Girls,” “Unforgettable,” “Person of Interest” and “How to Be a Gentleman.”
I saw previews of all of them. Let me just tell you, they ALL look so good! I will be hooked on these shows, and I am not just saying that because CBS pays my bills! I am being truly honest.
If I had to pick a favorite among the new shows, it would be “2 Broke Girls.” It is a comedy about two girls struggling to make ends meet.
Here is the description from http://www.cbs.com:
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 (Kat Dennings) 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 (Beth Behrs) 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 (Jonathan Kite), an overly flirtatious Russian cook; Earl (Garrett Morris), a 75-year-old kool-kat cashier; and Han Lee (Matthew Moy), 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. Michael Patrick King (“Sex and the City”) and writer-comedian Whitney Cummings (“Chelsea Lately”) are executive producers for Warner Bros. Television.
I love that this is a show about friendship among girlfriends. But these two girls are so different, like night and day. It is also exciting, since the producers have experience with two amazing shows, including my favorite, “Sex and the City.”
It would be a shock if “2 Broke Girls” is not a break-out success. I have a feeling viewers will not only fall in love with the show, but fall in love with the two main characters!
The show debuts this Fall on Mondays at 8:30 pm, ONLY on CBS!
