Summary: Sassy, streetwise Max works two jobs just to get by, one of which is waiting tables during the night shift at the retro-hip Williamsburg Diner. Sophisticated Caroline is an uptown trust fund princess who's having a run of bad luck that forces her to reluctantly give waitressing a shot. At first, Max sees Caroline as yet another in a long line of inept servers she must cover for, but she's surprised to find that Caroline has as much substance as she does style. When Caroline discovers Max's knack for baking amazing cupcakes, she sees a lucrative future for them, but they first need to raise the start-up money.
2 Broke Girls might think it's going for broke in an attempt to keep fickle audiences interested. But really it's merely grabbing elements from a slew of other comedies. It's part The Odd Couple: Paris Hilton-style heiress Caroline Channing is forced to move in with tough-talking waitress Max Black after her father's arrested and divested for heading up a Ponzi scheme. It's part Alice: The two work at a greasy diner staffed and frequented by a cast of revolving wackadoos. Then, in terms of its salacious sense of humor, 2 Broke Girls borrows heavily from its late, salacious network mate Two and a Half Men. While Broke Girls is ostensibly about friendship in economic downtimes, the majority of its jokes are all about sex: The sex characters have had, the sex they've not had, the sex they hope to have, the weird sex other people are having. In the premiere, Max and Caroline launch into a series of jokes revolving around a certain region of the female anatomy, partly inspiring The New York Times to christen the 2011 television season "the season of the vagina."
