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.”
