‘2 Broke Girls’ Gets A Full Season Order from CBS

20111005-174009.jpg
CBS’s latest hit is the highest-rated new show of the season.

CBS has ordered an additional 9 episodes to the 13 episode order of it’s latest half hour sitcom Two Broke Girls. This comes as a shock to no one as the show hit astronomical ratings from it’s Two and A Half Men lead-in. The multi-cam comedy is currently the highest-rated new show of the season with averaging 15.5 million viewers and a 5.8 adults 18-49 rating, winning it’s time slot for the last 3 weeks in a row.

Two Broke Girls stars Kat Dennings as Max a hipster-hating waitress in New York who becomes friends with her co-worker Caroline (played by Beth Behrs) who is an heiress who lost it all after her rich father was exposed to having a Bernie Madoff-like scandal. Two Broke Girls airs Monday nights at 8:30PM after How I Met Your Mother on CBS.

‘The Playboy Club’ Cancelled, ‘Whitney’ and ‘Up All Night’ Picked Up by NBC

The Fall TV season has suffered its first casualty, three weeks in.

NBC has canceled The Playboy Club, which launched with a disappointing 5.7 million viewers, and sunk lower week-to week, bottoming out at 3.4 million last night, with just a puny 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

On the flip side, NBC has renewed 2 of it’s Fall comedies, the Whitney Cummings-starrer Whitney and Christina Applegate’s Up All Night. Both comedies have been performing modestly, but at this point, NBC is in such bad shape, modest-to-low is good enough enough for them.

More to come…

As I mentioned in the title, a slew of pickups, cancellations, and renewals have been hitting our ways in the last few hours, and to say its overwhelming is an understatement. NBC, ABC, Fox, and CBS have picked up, renewed, and slashed & burned shows all day today and even though its surprising how fast and quickly this news has been coming out, I cant say that most of these announcements were shocking, except one, which I’ll mention later in the post. In the meanwhile, here is a full round-up of pickups, cancellations, and renewals, starting with NBC. The List will go in this order: Pilots getting orders are Greenlit, pilots being passed on are Redlit, shows being renewed are Returning, and shows that are cancelled are Cut Off.

BREAKING: NBC Gives ‘Chuck’, ‘Chase’ full season pickups, UnderCovers – Not as much

Nbc2

More pickups from NBC are happening as they’ve extended the seasons of Chase, Chuck, and Undercovers.

The number of episodes are scattered for each show, but here they are:

Chuck now in its fourth season, is getting an additional 11 episodes for an extended 24 episode season. Chase, a freshman show who has been struggling in the ratings, gets the usual back 9 to get a full 21 episode season, and UnderCovers, a show that has aleady been deemed to be canceled, has been given onl 4 additional episodes. Of course more episodes could be added in the future, but for now this is all they’ve asked for. I think that the only possibility of more orders are if Chase goes up more and if Undercovers manages to get over a 1.7 adults 18-49, which they’ve been failing to do with just 4 weeks on the air.

For now, that’s all I got! Yay for Chuck! Yay for Chase! Umm for Undercovers…

As mentioned yesterday, there are more pickups by the networks on the way, so stay tuned!
