3.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.14 million total viewers.
Season averages: 3.70 in the demo with 10.14 million.

Compared to its series premiere a year ago, the sitcom was down by 48% in the demo and 14% in viewers but last season’s opener had the advantage of airing behind the first Ashton Kutcher episode of Two and a Half Men. The season two debut still had very solid numbers and it actually had the show’s best demo since last February.


Reference point: The first season averaged a 4.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 11.29 million viewers.

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.

    Love it…Love it…Love it! My husband and I watch it with our two eldest children (Both of which are over 18). We all find the adult humor very funny without being vulgar. It’s nice to share some giggles together.

    i love the show. i like how the people on the show play off one another. the wise cracks and it really makes me laugh

    The only reason this show is surviving is due to it’s excellent time slot placement. It’s squeezed in between BBT, Two and a Half men and Mike & Molly half-hour comedy series while the other major networks are putting up one and two hour shows against this time slot. This rude, crude and socially unacceptable show becomes palatable because it’s the only thing to watch on the major networks without disrupting the other comedies or investing in one of the two hour “pseudo-reality” series (DWTS or The Voice). I agree with everything that Linda said back in March – good premise with potential for greatness ruined by excessive crude jokes … I mean seriously!!! How can a parent watch this with their kids (or vise versa) much less an adult with their spouse (even if there is a funny joke, it’s so crude you have to look around to see if it’s acceptable to laugh at it before you can laugh!) – – – No thanks. This one got deleted from our DVR schedule back in March and we just use the time to fast forward through the commercials of previously recorded shows.

    Please renew it is one of the only shows I watch other big bang theory. So PLEASE RENEW. I love the sick humor from max and the drama Queen.

  5. Linda says

    This show could be really really funny without the crude bedroom gags that finally led us to stop taping the series. The premise was great, and we enjoyed the banter between the two young ladies, but the stupid sex jokes were crude at best, gross at worst, and we finally erased the series from our “Shows to record” list on our DVR. On the flip side, we LOVE quite a few other CBS shows, and never miss a single episode of Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five-0, Mike & Molly, Person of Interest, or The Mentalist! (Which of course, means – please renew all of these! :) )
