CBS isn’t putting more money into Broke. The network just announced that the new comedy had been cancelled so there wouldn’t be second season of the Thursday night TV show.
The Broke sitcom follows a single suburban mother named Jackie (Pauley Perrette) who’s struggling to make ends meet while raising her young son, Sammy (Antonio Raul Corbo). Their lives are turned upside down when Jackie’s estranged sister, Elizabeth (Natasha Leggero); her sister’s big-hearted, Latin husband, Javier (Jaime Camil); and Javier’s fiercely loyal assistant/driver/friend, Luis (Izzy Diaz), land on her doorstep.
So far, season one of Broke is averaging a 0.69 rating in the 18-49 demo and 5.55 million viewers, making it one of CBS‘ lowest-rated comedy series for the 2019-20 season. The show had a mediocre premiere and the numbers have dropped pretty consistently each week.
About the “limited series” #BROKE Many new episodes are airing. This show restored my faith in people, in this industry. SO GRATEFUL I worked with this cast & crew Best people I’ve EVER worked with. Healed me. Changed me. Made me whole. So Blessed. Made this for you yesterday: pic.twitter.com/eADjPJ6Vy7
