'2 Broke Girls' meet one rich girl: Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian has been a staple of the reality-show circuit for almost a decade now, but she’s adding another scripted credit to her resume—this time on a Michael Patrick King comedy.

The star tweeted that she will appear in an episode of CBS’ 2 Broke Girls, which is set to air on Monday, Oct. 27. Kardashian did not mention whether she will be playing herself or a new character on the show. Her most recent forays into comedy, both on How I Met Your Mother and a live episode of 30 Rock, however, indicate it will more likely be the former. Kardashian’s other scripted work includes a four-episode arc on Drop Dead Diva and guest spots on CSI: NY and American Dad.

Whoever she ends up playing, one has to hope Kardashian will be seen playing Kim Kardashian: Hollywood on her phone during the episode.

Whitney Cummings' E! talk show canceled

People didn’t love it back.

Whitney Cummings’ talk show Love You, Mean It With Whitney Cummings, has been canceled, EW has confirmed with E!. A spokesperson told EW the last episode aired last Wednesday, Feb. 6. The weekly show premiered just this past November and was produced by Chelsea Handler’s company Borderline Amazing Productions. Handler also served as an executive producer on the show alongside Cummings.

While her talk show may have bitten the dust, Cummings herself is doing alright. While her eponymous NBC sitcom still struggles in the ratings for season 2, the other show she co-created, 2 Broke Girls, continues to fare better.

'2 Broke Girls' sexy pole-dancing Super Bowl ad

CBS rolled out standard Super Bowl-themed promos for several primetime shows during Sunday’s big game — sitcom stars fist-pumping while wearing eye black, that sort of thing.

Then there was this.

Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs writhing and mane-tossing to Def Leppard’s pole-dancing classic “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” their 2 Broke Girls’ Brooklyn diner set turned a club. Is there a sports theme here? Nope. Will NFL fans care? Nope. Maybe this is what caused the Superdome power surge? READ FULL STORY

CBS boss on 'How I Met Your Mother': 'We want the show to come back next year'

In case there was ever any doubt: CBS is working on having How I Met Your Mother return for a ninth season.

President of CBS Entertainment Nina Tassler today confirmed ongoing negotiations that would give the comedy another season. “They know we want the show to come back next year, and we’re having conversations right now about extending it,” she said. “We’re in early conversations and we’re pretty optimistic.” READ FULL STORY

'2 Broke Girls' star Beth Behrs talks tonight's season finale, show criticism -- EW VIDEO

If something’s broken, Martha Stewart probably knows how to fix it. But how will she do against two broke girls?

In tonight’s one-hour season finale of CBS freshman comedy, 2 Broke Girls, the domestic diva meets Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs) at a gala as they seek her seal of approval on their beloved cupcakes. But, warns Behrs, they might run into a few issues on the way. (See the video below for a short peek at the embarrassment!)

But one issue they definitely didn’t have? Making Martha Stewart a comedienne.”It doesn’t surprise me! She’s such a wonder woman in everything else she does — like superwoman — of course she’d be able to pick up a comedy script and be funny,” gushes Behrs.

During our short chat, the bubbly Behrs had nice things to say about her costar as well as the show’s writers, who this season have been the target of much criticism from the media for their racy and, some say, racist jokes. “I’m such a fan of our writing staff, and everything they write is from a place of truth within what the characters are going through in the moment. I’ve never once felt like anything has been out of [place] — even when it’s a really dirty joke or something,” says Behrs. “It’s still coming from a true place… We don’t really pay attention to [criticism] on set. People are always going to have a problem with something.” READ FULL STORY

'Smash' starts solid; 'Voice' tops Monday ratings

Monday’s twin debuts of The Voice in its regular time slot and freshman drama Smash delivered pretty good news for NBC.

As expected, The Voice‘s ratings (17.7 million viewers, 6.6 adults 18-49) dropped sharply from Sunday’s post-Super Bowl debut. The singing competition was down 60 percent. But this was NBC’s highest-rated regular entertainment series telecast in over four years and gave the network a rare Monday night victory. It’s also up 29 percent from last year’s series debut of The Voice and grew steadily each half hour.

NBC’s Smash (11.5 million, 3.8) news was a bit more mixed. The musical was the third-highest-rated new drama debut of the season and delivered the biggest 10 p.m. rating of any drama this season. Yet even with the mammoth Voice lead-in, four rival network shows had higher ratings. Plus, Smash dropped pretty sharply after The Voice, then dipped again during its second half hour.

'2 Broke Girls' creator fights critics, denies racism charge, during riveting debate

UPDATED: CBS’ press tour panel for raunchy hit sitcom 2 Broke Girls turned into a riveting verbal brawl between some critics and the series’ showrunner, who vehemently defended the comedy from accusations of stereotypical characters and profane jokes.

Ever since 2 Broke Girls premiered to high ratings in September, the series has been criticized for its portrayal of an Asian character named Han (who’s been at the receiving end of jokes like, “You can’t tell an Asian he made a mistake, he’ll go in the back and throw himself on a sword”) and an African-American character named Earl.

Before the show’s panel in Pasadena, CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler assured critics that writers would continue to “dimensionalize” the 2 Broke Girls characters as time went on. Then the show’s creator, Michael Patrick King (of Sex and the City fame), and stars Kat Denning and Beth Behrs took the stage. What followed is one of the most combative press tour panels in recent years (and was also verbally graphic, so fair warning).

The debate started with the very first question, when King was asked about the show’s “broad racial and ethnic humor.” READ FULL STORY

CBS funnies take first Monday of 2012

Glad you’re back, original programming! And what a return: A (finally) funny episode of How I Met Your Mother highlighted a strong night for CBS, which won the first Monday of 2012 with a 3.7 rating/9 share in adults 18-49 and 11.9 million viewers, according to early results.

All the CBS comedies won their time slots, beginning with HIMYM (3.9/9, 10.2 million), 2 Broke Girls (4.3/10, 12 million), Two and a Half Men (4.4/10, 13.7 million), and Mike & Molly (3.8/9, 11.9 million). Hawaii 5-0 also won its time slot in the key demo (2.9/7) and viewers 11.7 million.

ABC was second for the night in the demo and viewers (2.4/6, 7.2 million), having rolled out another edition of The Bachelor. The two-hour crapfest averaged around 7.6 million viewers in its first hour and roughly 7.8 million in its second hour. It was No. 1 from 8-9 p.m. among women 18-34.

NBC was third for the night, and was helped by an original episode of Fear Factor, which earned a 2.4/5 and 5.9 million viewers. That’s a 60 percent improvement to the time slot versus earlier than season. Give that Joe Rogan a bonus!

Fox ran repeats of House while the CW aired oldies of Secret Circle.

'Terra Nova' ratings drop on Halloween night

Fox’s Terra Nova ratings got spooked on Halloween night, falling more than any other broadcast show after spending a week off the air due to baseball coverage.

Terra Nova returned to 6.4 million viewers and a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating, down 25 percent compared to its last original airing. (Bummer — some say it was the show’s best episode, recap here.) Given that Terra Nova airs at 8 p.m. and is targeted toward families, it was probably the most likely series to take a punch.

And Terra Nova wasn’t the only show to take a holiday night hit in the ratings — pretty much every series was down, except… READ FULL STORY

'2 Broke Girls' picked up for full season

Expected, yet still welcome news: CBS’ 2 Broke Girls is getting some job security, landing a full-season order.

The Monday night comedy has been flying high as part of the network’s comedy block. The most recent episode averaged 11.5 million viewers and a 4.5 adult demo rating, matching its How I Met Your Mother lead-in. New comedies this fall so far are definitely getting the network love over dramas, with Fox picking up New Girl and NBC ordering more Whitney and Up All Night. No freshman drama, however, has yet to receive a full season.
