CBS to Air a Special Preview of Superior Donuts on February 2; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of December 19, 2016)

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.
