Fall TV is upon us, and with so many new series hitting the airwaves, it’s tough deciding which shows will get your DVR’s undivided attention. Well, you and your electronic devices can rest easy—Hollywood Crush is on the case. Each day this week, we’ll highlight one of the 2011-12 season’s can’t-miss shows. Consider us your TV gurus for the next five days. K?
Today’s spotlight is on “2 Broke Girls,” which premieres on CBS next Monday, September 19, at 9:30 p.m. ET. The half-hour sitcom stars “Thor” actress Kat Dennings and relative newcomer Beth Behrs. When we caught up with the two lovely ladies recently, we asked them to explain why their show, which, unsurprisingly is about two broke girls living in Brooklyn trying to start a cupcake business, appeals to all audiences.
“I think this is a really relatable show, no matter how old or young [you are],” Beth said. “My parents who are in their 50s came to a taping and were like, ’We would watch this even if you weren’t in it,'” she recalled. ’My sister who’s 18 came and loved it as well.”
“Also the subject matter of being broke is a huge deal always and especially right now,” added Kat. “Everyone can relate to that, and it’s nice to see people go through it on TV.”
As to what’s in store for the girls over the course of the show’s first season, Beth said to expect a lot of economic woes, but the funny kind.
“We can expect to see us working at the diner and literally trying to scrape enough money to start this cupcake business,” she said. “We’ll probably be working other odd jobs and [get into] lots of sticky situations.”
