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?

The “only” time we laughed during this show was the pilot episode. It has gotten UNfunny and kind of stupid since then!

I think this had potential but the actresses need acting lessons. Garrett’s performance is the only slightly funny part.

One of the worst shows I’ve seen. Not funny at all. Cancel this crap.

I think the show is cute but the sarcastic mono-toned lines the brunette has are too much. She doesn’t seem to have sarcasm down. The blonde is funny and steals the show. They need to work on the brunettes acting skills. She is very vanilla and not really entertaining.

I love 2 broke girls… I can’t wait every Monday when I get to see it. I am so addicted that I even record it when I’m watching it. I hope they keep it one for many many seasons to come or I am going to be so sad and disappointed. As to all the people who don’t think it’s good…two and a half men isn’t all that funny. Not even in the slightest. This is better than anything I have seen. Nothing can top this… I love this show!!!!!!!

LOVE IT! LOVE IT!! LOVE IT!!! And so does my 20-something son. It’s my new guilty pleasure. I like every single character, in fact I met those people when I visited my friend in New York. LOL! OK, so the horse is a bit over-the-top. This is the first TV series in years that I found both screamingly funny, and truly original. Yay! for “Two Broke Girls”. I could watch them forever. (Side note: My son and I both noticed how the two co-stars seem to have genuine affection between them. They crack each other up, sometimes even before they get the lines out. Good for them, it’s nice to see actors obviously having a good time with their show and their characters.)

My friends and I LOVE this show. It is the first show in a while that makes you laugh out loud all by yourself. I hope it stays on for a long time. The acting is great and the wrighting is sooooo funny. Its one of those shows that you either LOVE it or HATE it and I LOVE it. Its not the type of humor for everyone but I think thats what makes it a good show because its different.

It was a good show. It wasn’t at the level of Two and a Half Men, but it had its moments.
