TV Hangover

Waking up on the couch with an empty DVR & trying to understand what the hell we watched last night.

Some things about 2 Broke Girls:
The laugh track kept telling me when to laugh and it was usually very wrong. 
Drink for every hipster joke or cringe-worthy music reference (Coldplay? Really?)
The second act was better than the first and wrapped up the pilot nicely whereas the first act was mostly bogged down by broad stereotypical characters and “snappy” dialogue that tried too hard and had a icky after taste of Diablo Cody. 
Are we really still doing the whole hip old black guy and grammatically challenged Asian guy characters? Yeah? Cool. Good progress, world. 
This is not a subway that exists in 2011:
This was also created by Whitney Cummings and so far it seems cruder and more similar to her “drrrrty gal” act more than Whitney probably will. 
Is it a television rule that all new pilots with “girl” in the title must feature the main character coming home early to find her boyfriend cheating on her?
That said: 2 Broke Girls is definitely better than New Girl though I’m not really rushing to watch any of them on a week-to-week basis.
