2 Broke Girls Cancellation By CBS Has Social Media Divided Over Lack Of Resolution For Series
By Shawn Rice
2 Broke Girls was once a staple of CBS in their comedy block but now the show is cancelled. After six seasons, fans will not get the resolution that they may have wanted.
Deadline reports that CBS and Warner Bros. TV, who produced 2 Broke Girls, could not come to an agreement over the financials of the aging series. With negotiations down to the wire, there was talk of potentially shortening Season 7 down to 13-18 episodes, but ultimately a deal couldn’t be made.
Though 2 Broke Girls started off notably strong in its first 2011-2012 season, its viewership did decline, but it was still a decent performer for CBS – and the network’s youngest-skewing comedy. In its sixth season, the restaurant comedy has averaged a 1.9 among adults 18-49 and 7 million total viewers.
Sources say a short 13-episode order been discussed for the series, which had been used on Mondays and Thursdays but ultimately the network’s lack of an ownership proved to be its demise.
Here are some reactions on social media to the show’s cancellation.

Why are ppl shocked by the #2BrokeGirls cancellation? The show had a bright 1/2 season, gimmick got old, adding Coolidge made it unwatchable

“2 Broke Girls” is basically a half hour of sex jokes written by your dad. Kinda bizarre that people are upset that it’s been cancelled.

2 Broke Girls was once described to me as a show where people scream terrible one-liners at each other. Spot on.
