CBS Cancels 2 Broke Girls

CBS has canceled the sitcom, 2 Broke Girls, after six seasons and 138 episodes.

The show starred Kat Demmings and Beth Behrs as two wise-cracking Brooklyn-ites who work together as waitresses at a local diner.

Over its long run, 2 Broke Girls was met with mixed reaction from the TV critics with a score of just 59 percent at RottenTomatoes.com. Some critics praised the leads’ chemistry while other panned it for what they perceived as female stereotyping.

The ratings have been strong, sometimes generating more than 10 million viewers for some live airings. But there was a noticeable dip in the now final season; the debut episode was watched by more than six million live while the season finale was seen by less than five million.

The ratings decline led to buzz that CBS would finally pull the plug before season seven. Beth Behrs stirred the straw this week when she told Andy Cohen on his Bravo talk show that the show’s future was in doubt.

The network also does not own the show, which was produced by Warner Bros, so CBS’ financial stake in a season seven was also diminished.
