Superior Donuts

The CBS Television Network announced the series premiere of sitcom Superior Donuts, starring Judd Hirsch and Jermaine Fowler, will debut with a special preview on Thursday, Feb. 2 at 8:30PM ET/PT. The new comedy then moves to its regular Monday, 9:00PM ET/PT half-hour on Feb. 6. As a result, 2 Broke Girls will shift to 9:30 PM ET/PT half-hour, following the season finale of The Odd Couple on Jan. 30. The special preview premiere on Feb. 2 will also feature the CBS series premiere of new drama Training Day at 10pm, as we mentioned. The premieres of sophomore drama Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders will be announced at a later date. Superior Donuts follows the relationship between the gruff owner (Hirsch) of a small donut shop, his enterprising new young employee (Fowler) and their loyal patrons, in a quickly gentrifying Chicago neighborhood. Based on the play by Tracy Letts, the comedy also stars Katey Sagal, David Koechner, Maz Jobrani, Anna Baryshnikov, Darien Sills-Evans and Rell Battle. Bob Daily, Neil Goldman, Garrett Donovan, Mark Teitelbaum, John Montgomery, Michael Rotenberg, Josh Lieberman and Jermaine Fowler are the executive producers for CBS Television Studios.
