2 Broke Girls was one of the major cancellations of slaughter season, representing a significant coup for the reaper — but why did CBS swing the axe?
CBS head of scheduling Kelly Kahl spilled the cancellation beans to Deadline, claiming the decision to send 2 Broke Girls to the dumpster was a creative and scheduling consequence:
“2 Broke Girls was a really good show for us for a very long time. Our comedy development this year was very good and whenever your comedy development is really good, it puts a lot of pressure on some of your older shows. We felt creatively it was time and we had to create some space on the schedule to get some new product on.”
While money was no doubt the major factor, Kahl insists it was mostly a ‘creative’ choice:
“I think it was a creative decision more than anything else. It was not a show we own but we picked up (new comedy series Me, Myself & I and By the Book) from Warner Bros. So I don’t think it was a business decision, I think it was creatively we felt it was time.”
Will you miss 2 Broke Girls? Have you decided to boycott CBS?

THIS IS BULLS#;£!!!!!!!!! SCREW YOU CBS!!! Your network could have at least made a goodbye show do the fans could have closure. I pray all your new comedy shows have extremely dismal ratings and fail horribly too! A very dissatisfied viewer n longtime huge fan of 2 Broke Girls!

First, CBS cancelled Mike & Molly, Man with a Plan, Superior Donuts, and now Two Broke Girls. What is wrong with you people? Linda left Blue Bloods with no good-bye; you still have time for a good-bye for Two Broke Girls. It looks like I am going to have to switch to one of the other stations. Next thing you will cancel The Big Bang Theory and that would be television suicide.
