Michael Patrick King: 2 Broke Girls Is Not Racist; It's "Classy-Dirty"

Michael Patrick King wants to make something clear: 2 Broke Girls is not a racist show. As for all the inappropriate jokes, they're just "classy-dirty," OK?

The 2 Broke Girls creator met with reporters at CBS' winter TV previews Wednesday, during which he was asked to defend the show's ethnic stereotypes and off-color humor, particularly in scenes involving the characters with whom down-on-their luck waitresses (Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs) work at a Brooklyn diner.

"I find it comic to... read more

Kat Dennings

"We had an amazing year, a phenomenal year," CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter TV previews Wednesday.

But despite the network's success — it is No. 1 in both total viewers and in the adults 18-49 demographic through the first half of the season and successfully relaunched Two and a Half Men — CBS has created a bit of controversy with shows including 2 Broke Girls and The Talk.

Get the scoop on the midseason must-see new shows

The biggest critical complaint about breakout hit comedy 2 Broke Girls is the show's sometimes offensive humor and its broad racial stereotyping of the characters Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs) work with at the diner... read more

Downton Abbey

What's this?!? There is some accounting for taste?!? Downton Abbey's Season 2 premiere averaged 4.2 million viewers.

Nielsen data on Tuesday showed that the Emmy-winning series' return Sunday night doubled the average PBS prime-time rating, and marked an 18 percent jump over the show's first-season average — which made PBS ecstatic.

Matt's TV Week in Review: New Year's Edition

Revenge

Some thoughts on a few of the shows that got 2012 off to a (mostly) promising start. Which means I've already forgotten that ABC's grotesquely unfunny Work It exists — and if you thought that was bad, wait until you see (or better yet, don't) next week's comedy disasters: CBS' offensively stereotypical Rob and NBC's rancid hangover of a dud Are You There, Chelsea? But for now, let's accentuate the (mostly) positive.

Cobie Smulders

The Mother of all Robin-centric How I Met Your Mother episodes brought the series its largest audience in nearly three years, while 2 Broke Girls anted up its biggest viewership since its September premiere in the first hour of prime time, according to Nielsen overnight data.

Ask Matt: Vampire Diaries, Dexter, Glee, the TV Laugh Track, and More!

Nina Dobrev

Question: As we approach the annual barrage of year-end Top 10 lists, I'm dreading the fact that one worthy, excellent TV show will be overlooked by most critics: The Vampire Diaries. Don't get me wrong, I love Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones as much as any sane person, but I also think TVD is one of the most expertly paced, perfectly plotted shows on TV right now. Unfortunately, I don't think many professional critics bother to watch it, though they'll analyze lesser shows like True Blood and The Walking Dead just because of the networks they air on. Even if critics don't think The Vampire Diaries is Top 10 worthy, I think it at least deserves to be part of the year-end conversation. Why is it so hard for a show like this to be taken seriously? — Donnie

Matt Roush: I like Vampire Diaries and probably give it more consideration than ...
