Yesterday, we reported that Mom (season three) and Mike & Molly (season six) had been renewed for the 2015-16 season. Now, CBS has made their renewals official and have also renewed 2 Broke Girls for a fifth season.
Airing Mondays, 2 Broke Girls, streetwise Max Black (Kat Dennings) and formerly-wealthy Caroline Channing (Beth Behrs) work in a greasy diner. The unlikely partners try to earn enough money to pay their bills and develop their cupcake business. The sitcom co-stars Garrett Morris, Jonathan Kite, Matthew Moy, and Jennifer Coolidge.
Year-to-year, 2 Broke Girls is down by 15% in the 18-49 demographic but up slightly in viewership, averaging a 2.1 in the demo and 8.29 million.
Here’s the official announcement:

What do you think? Do you like 2 Broke Girls? Are you glad that it’s been renewed or, should it have been cancelled instead?
It should be aired after 9:00 p.m. Although funny, it is not appropriate for younger, ie., under 18, audiences.

Love 2broke girls more than anything.. lol
CBS, the legendary network that brings us intelligent programming like “60 Minutes”, “Madame Secretary” and “The Big Bang Theory” has in-explicitly renewed this vulgar show. I would rather watch re-runs of “Dr. Chris, Pet Vet”, or queue up episodes of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on my TiVO than be subjected to such low humor. Cancel “Mike & Molly” while you’re at it, if you really want to improve the quality of your programming. Thank you
This is one of the stupidest shows I have ever seen in my life! The people in this show shouldn’t even call themselves actors because there is no acting there. It’s very vulgar & it’s about nothing but sex! Kids under 18 shouldn’t even be allowed to watch this stupid show! Please take it off & put something in this time slot that FAMILIES can watch together!
2 Broke Girls is among the best five shows on TV. I wish it could last for years to come. I think it has a lot of room to grow and it will be sad to see it go.
The top five shows are 2 Broke Girls, Big Bang Theory, Mom, Quantico and How to Get Away With Murder.
I hope minds will be changed and we see Max and Caroline for many more seasons.
I LOVE two broke girls! Please keep it going!
I have tried to watch this show a couple of times. This is one of the worst shows I have ever tried to watch. Forced acting, bad punch lines and the laugh track is obvious to everyone. Maybe find the writers that have can write funny material that appeals to a wider audience.
The show is awesome it is so funny and the cast is so good. Glad you renewed it.
Yaaaaay the eye candy girls continue on air! Kat Dennings & Beth Behrs should be on air coz their easy on the eyes where else can u find such lovely ladies who are also funny in what they do.
I love Two Broke Girls, but can’t find when the new season starts.
Cancel it.I. ant even sit through a commercial for the show.They are the so annoying G and not even funny
