2 Broke Girls (CBS, Mondays at 7:30)
The Good News: Cat Dennings. She's cute.
The Bad News: She often speaks as if she's just had a stroke.
The Good News: There's a decent Laverne & Shirley in Brooklyn vibe happening here.
The Bad News: The two leads often seem as if they're acting in two different shows.
The Good News: Garrett Morris!
The Bad News: The rest of the cast is composed of an anonymous roster of ethnic stereotypes.
The Good News: Cupcakes and coffee.
The Bad News: The diner is one of the ugliest, least functional sets in recent memory.
The Good News: The blond is not an idiot.
The Bad News: Everyone else kind of is.
The Good News: Sassy waitresses!
The Bad News: Bryce Lee.
The Good News: A horse in the yard?
The Bad News: The grating music used to shift us from scene to scene.
The Good News: A goal-oriented theme like How I Met Your Mother.
The Bad News: Mother really sucks now.
The Verdict: Check it out. Sitcom pilot episodes are usually subpar and this one was maybe at par, no more than a double bogey. The two leads have a lot of potential, as does the show. They just need to fire the rest of the cast, build a new set, and shoot the person who scores this thing. That's IT! Ain't no thang.
