‘2 Broke Girls’ Gets Full-Season Order From CBS

Monday-night comedy has the highest adult demo rating of any new series

As expected, CBS has given a full-season order to its new Monday-night comedy "2 Broke Girls."

Running at 8:30 p.m. between "How I Met Your Mother" and "Two and a Half Men," "Broke Girls" has had the highest ratings average among the 18-49 money demo for any new series this fall.

The Warner Bros.-produced "Broke Girls" stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs as young, financially strapped waitresses working in New York and getting into adventures.

Seriers co-creator Whitney Cummings is having a rather spectacular fall, with the NBC series she executive produces and headlines, "Whitney," getting picked up last week.

The fate of CBS' other new comedy, Thursday-night sitcom, "How to Be a Gentleman," is far less secure.

The comedy, which stars "Entourage's" Kevin Dillon, dropped 40 percent of the viewers from its hit lead-in at 8 p.m., "Big Bang Theory" (15 million viewers down to 9 million). The drop in the adult demo was 2.7 from 4.8 for "Big Bang Theory."
