CBS is only adding two new sitcoms to track/live studio audience. Heaven forbid CBS let its viewers decide what to laugh at.
The preview above is for “2 Broke Girls,” which stars the delicious Kat Dennings as blue-collar girl Max, and some unremarkable blonde woman as an heiress who loses her fortune and ends up working at the same diner as Max. I love that Dennings is getting a starring roles now, but that probably won’t be enough for me to tune in.
Below is a preview for “How to Be a Gentleman,” starring David Hornsby as a frilly nancy boy magazine writer who writes a manners column. The obvious upsides are Dave Foley, Mary-Lynn Rajskun (“24”), and Rhys Darby (“Flight of the Conchords”). The massive, stinking downside is Kevin Dillon as Hornsby’s tough childhood friend, which might be believable if Dillon wasn’t 5-foot-6. But hey, I could be wrong. I’m probably just saying bad things about Dillon because he’s in “Entourage.” At least I hope I am. I wouldn’t expect anything less of myself.
