According to a report in Deadline, Two Broke Girls has officially been cancelled by CBS Television. The once popular show was a favorite of many within the LGBT spectrum because of the show’s gay friendly vibe.
But in recent years, the popularity of the series went into decline. Here’s some inside baseball, as reported in Variety:
“The series starred Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs as waitresses at in a Brooklyn diner who one day dream of opening their own business. The only thing standing in their way is the fact they are dead broke. The series also starred Matthew Moy, Jonathan Kite, Garrett Morris, and Jennifer Coolidge.The series was co-created by Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings, with King and Michelle Nader executive producing. Warner Bros. Television and MPK Productions produced.The series posted solid ratings throughout its run. Season 6 averaged a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.6 million viewers per episode, airing mostly on Monday nights. It briefly moved to Wednesdays and Thursdays during its fifth season.”
Apparently, there had been hope the show would survive. But Deadline shared that things started turning south for the show after a series of new offerings in conjunction with Warner Brothers started to appear.
The main stars of the show, Kat Dennings (Max) and Beth Behrs (Caroline) both took to Twitter in response to the cancellation and expressed thanks to fans watching.

News of 2 Broke Girls comes at the same time that The Real O’Neals got the ax from ABC Television. Deadline reported that the comedy show delivered disappointing ratings in its second season.
One of the actors on the program, Noah Galvin, was embroiled in a controversy last year after attacking Colton Haynes in an interview. On social media, some believe the unpleasant comments, something Galvin later apologized for, soured LGBT viewers on the show.
Others, however, feel the program fell victim to uninteresting scripts that didn’t appeal to wider viewing audiences.
