Timeslot ChangeEdit

The first episode of "2 Broke Girls" aired at 9:30 pm (E/P) after "Two and a Half Men" on September 19, 2011 and the show moved to its regular timeslot following How I Met Your Mother on Monday nights at 8:30 pm (E/P).

For its second season, the show moved to 9 pm ET/PT after "Two and a Half Men" was moved to Thursdays, and remained there until early in its third season.

On March 27, 2013, CBS renewed "2 Broke Girls" for a third season. It was first moved back to its original timeslot (which opened when "We Are Men" was cancelled) and stayed there until March 24, 2014.

Beginning on April 7, 2014, the series was moved to 8:00 pm to replace "How I Met Your Mother" following its conclusion with the show's former timeslot given to the short-lived "Friends with Better Lives".

On March 13, 2014, CBS renewed "2 Broke Girls" for a fourth season and the network announced a premiere date of October 27, 2014.

The move was prompted by CBS' arrangement to air Thursday Night Football for the first several weeks of the season and their subsequent decision not to postpone the season premiere of "The Big Bang Theory" which occupied "2 Broke Girls"' timeslot until October 20 and then returned to its normal Thursday timeslot. The fourth season consisted of 22 episodes.

On March 12, 2015, CBS renewed "2 Broke Girls" for a fifth season which premiered Thursday, November 12, 2015.

CBS relocated the show to Thursdays 9:30 pm ET/PT due to "Supergirl" taking over its previous Monday night timeslot. It had its premiere delayed again this season due to CBS airing "Thursday Night Football" for the first few weeks of the season.

By November, regular Thursday programming resumed with "The Big Bang Theory" and the new comedy "Life in Pieces" moving to Thursdays after airing on Monday nights at the beginning of the season. "Mom" and "2 Broke Girls" then premiered the same month to form CBS' Thursday night comedy block.

By midseason, CBS moved it to Wednesdays 8 pm ET/PT starting January 6, 2016, pairing it with the final season of "Mike & Molly".

Both comedies were slated to air for six weeks on the Wednesday 8:00-9:00 hour before going on an indefinite hiatus due to "Survivor" returning to that timeslot the following month.

However, on February 8, 2016, CBS cancelled new comedy "Angel From Hell" with "2 Broke Girls" replacing it and returning to its Thursday timeslot on February 18, 2016.
