Trailer: 3, 2, 1… Frankie Go Boom

Frankie Go Boom might be on your radar because of Ron Perlman’s role as “Phyllis” the transgendered hacker. Also, there are a lot of famous people who I specifically like in it such as Lizzy Caplan, Charlie Hunnam (Jax on Sons of Anarchy), Chris Noth and Whitney Cummings.

Whitney Cummings Scores Talk Show

Not only is the E! Network dipping their toes into the world of scripted television (Anne of Boleyn, Dorothy, Upstarts from Kevin Spacey, and Fascination Street are among them) but they’re giving Whitney Cummings her own half-hour talk show.

‘2 Broke Girls’ Season Premiere Review

There’s always something comforting about the two bare essentials of sitcoms, tried and true – a good old fashioned opposites-attract style friendship, and a waitressing gig.

The coffee shop/diner thing is essential to most every memorable show, 90210‘s Peach Pit, Cheers, Central Perk on Friends, Monk’s Cafe on Seinfeld.

How unsurprising that it also triggered some pleasant memories on 2 Broke Girls.

The show is the brainchild of Michael Patrick King (key writer for Sex And The City) and Whitney Cummings. Yes you heard it right, the woman who has her own starring role on a separate brand-new sitcom on NBC titled Whitney.

2 Broke Girls’ first episode premiered yesterday on CBS after a record-breaking episode of Two And A Half Men, starring Ashton Kutcher in a buzzed-about role, after Charlie Sheen’s insanity departure…
