2 Broke Shows

Whitney, Whitney, Whitney. I know this isn't all your fault. But "2 Broke Girls" isn't what I thought it was going to be. It's better than Whitney Cummings' own show, though. The premise is good. Kat Dennings is super talented. I'll even tolerate the canned laughter. To be fair, I only watched the pilot, maybe the other episodes are better.

The pilot was actually funny, don't get me wrong. But there are really awkward moments and the acting is stiff at times, which really disappoints me. I wanted to like this show so much. Like I said, I haven't seen the other episodes, but I will and I'll definitely let you all know what I think.

One of the reasons I expected so much out of this show was that Michael Patrick King is involved, and he of course created and wrote "Sex and the City". Now, you may argue that some of the writing on that show wasn't exactly spectacular (all of the puns, I know), but it was sharp and funny and cool most of the time.

I think this show needs a lot more "Sex and the City" and a lot less "Whitney". I don't have anything against Whitney Cummings as a stand up comedian, but it seems like she's having a lot of trouble transitioning over to the censored sitcom genre.

What do you think? Am I wrong about this show? Tweet me!
