FOIA site shares complaints about “2 Broke Girls,” “Two and a Half Men”
Digging through GovernmentAttic.org can be lots of fun. The site, which posts documents attained through Freedom of Information Act requests, has shared dozens of complaints made to the Federal Communication Commission about the CBS comedies “2 Broke Girls” and “Two and a Half Men.”
Among them are complaints about lots of dirty words and phrases, including ““shoot on my chest,” “penis alerts,” “girl-on-girl porn,” and “giving head.” Viewers, even some who stressed that they like comedy, were not impressed. (Neither are we. TheWrap recently rated “2 Broke Girls” one of television's worst shows.)

The complaints run from typical “2 Broke” jokes to criticism of a Super Bowl ad in which the show's stars danced on a stripper pole. CBS did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment.
Here are some of the highlights of the “2 Broke Girls” complaints. For the full complaints, visit GovernmentAttic.org.
“Forced fellatio and ejaculation on a woman’s breasts are not prime-time material.”
“In the opening 5 minutes of the broadcast one of the stars made the comment “dry vagina” and then immediately proceeds to another room on the set where a waitress is having sex. When the star returns to the front room she made the comment that the other girl was “coming” followed by the groans being heard by the girl who is supposedly having sex.”
“From constant comments about sexual positions and ejaculation in every orifice to menstrual cycles in much more vulgar terms… Two Broke Girls is unrelenting. … I don’t know when TV censorship died in this country but we need it back.”
“It’s 8:30 at night on a Monday and I have to explain to my child what ‘fingering’ is?”
“I am a fan of the show Two Broke Girls but am very disappointed in CBS for airing a show which discussed penis size and dildo's at 8:30 PM.”
“I am no a prude, but having a male character talking about having finger sex and had sex with a female character is offensive to me at 8:30… It was not even a double entendre – the male character actually said, ‘I had hand sex with her,’ and then seconds later when asked to pinkie swear, another character said, “I don't know where that pinkie has been” and the first character said, “I just told you.” Meaning that his pinkie was in a woman's vagina. Are you serious?”
“As everyone is cozily gathered around, looking forward to the much anticipated Super Bowl, we should absolutely NOT be forced to squirm in our seats or rush around trying to find the remote in an attempt to change channels in time while being forced to listen to obnoxiously smacking kisses between an adult woman and a seemingly underage boy, nor should viewers have to backtrack and attempt to make excuses to their children of what those “Two Broke Girls” were doing on that dance pole.”
