4. 2 Broke Girls (CBS)
Stars: Kat Dennings, Beth Behrs, Garrett Morris, Jonathan Kite, Matthew Moy, Jennifer Coolidge, Nick Zano, Brooke Lyons
Clearly we’re fans of Kat Dennings around here, which is why it pains us to chastise her new hit sitcom 2 Broke Girls, but sometimes one has to call a spade a spade. Or, in this case, a forced, obnoxious compendium of obvious sexual puns and racial jokes just that.
It’s no slight toward Dennings or her co-star, the comically gifted Beth Behrs—together, the show’s leading ladies justify our incessant need to watch every episode. They’re often able to sell the most insufferable of punch lines with goofy charm (Behrs) and sexy arrogance (Dennings), but the same can’t be said for their co-stars, or the writing staff responsible for repeatedly using the subject of rape as comedic fodder.
