2 Broke Girls Gets Special Time On Dec. 12; Sitcom Stars On Talk Shows (Week of November 28, 2011)


2 Broke Girls

As we first broke on Twitter, the CBS freshman sitcom 2 Broke Girls will air at a special time on Monday, Dec. 12 at 8/7 central. It will be an all-new episode, too. A repeat will follow in its regular 8:30pm timeslot. So why is it airing at 8pm on this night? We have two reasons. One is to perhaps test how it does on its own leading off. The second is regularly scheduled How I Met Your Mother premiered on Sept. 19 with two episodes, so it has one more episode aired than the other CBS Monday comedies. It could be a mix of both, but I think it has more to do with Mother having aired an extra episode. Either way, it'll be interesting to see if 2 Broke Girls could match or even do better in the ratings than Mother.


It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars, so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
