Home ec virtuoso Martha Stewart will be weaving some comedy on CBS Monday night and the news is causing quite a stir in sewing circles around the country.
The season climax of "2 Broke Girls" sees our heroes Max, played by Kat Dennings, and Caroline, played by Beth Behrs, as they seek out a celebrity endorsement in order to launch their business into major success. And, when you’re selling cupcakes, who better to give you the nod than Martha Stewart.
They find themselves at a fashion gala in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here, they stalk Stewart in attempt to strike up a conversation.
But nerves get the best of the cupcake entrepreneurs, who – like the rest of America – have put Stewart on a very tall (and tastefully done) pedestal.
“The woman probably doesn’t even go to the bathroom,” says Caroline.
Cut to: The bathroom, where the three finally meet.
After last week’s sex joke themed episode “21,” Max and Caroline certainly have our attention. Decorating the episode with a celebrity face is keeping us tuned in.
“2 Broke Girls” is a co-collaboration between creators Michael Patrick King and comedienne, Whitney Cummings. Concluding its second season now, the show is doing surprising well, despite the critical bashing and low ratings that have put Cummings’ own show “Whitney” into the red zone.
According to The Calgary Sun, “Broke Girls” might be pulled from its Monday slot in order to be part of a new Thursday night, two-hour comedy block next season. The slot would compete with NBC’s well-known comedy night, which features “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation.”
You can catch Martha, Max, and Caroline – and their half hour embroidered with humor – tonight in the season finale at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
