Episode 01-02: Monday, 9/26/11
As expected, episode two dropped quite a bit. It scored a 4.6 in the demo and 11.75 million viewers, a decline of 35% in the 18-49 category. However, this sitcom is still doing very well and built on its How I Met Your Mother lead in.
Season average: 5.8 in the demo and 15.56 million viewers.

Episode 01-01: Monday, 9/19/11
The premiere aired at 9:30pm, following the much-anticipated premiere of Two and a Half Men with Aston Kutcher. In that plum position, 2 Broke Girls had a huge debut with a 7.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 19.37 million viewers. That represents an 82% demo improvement over the debut of Mike & Molly one year earlier.

Between the first and second 15 minutes of the program, 2 Broke Girls only lost 11% in the demo ratings. That seems reasonable considering the event nature of the lead-in. The numbers will naturally come down quite a bit for the second episode but the premiere received a very strong sampling. It was a really positive start.


Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the 2 Broke Girls TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
