As if there were any question that it would have some staying power fans of CBS’s break-out sitcom 2 Broke Girls can breathe a sigh of relief now that the network has ordered a full season of the series co-created by Sex and the City’s Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show stars the adorable Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs as diner waitresses and polar opposites who end up as roomies and friends trying to make ends meet in Brooklyn. Dennings (The House Bunny, Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist) plays the rough-around-the-edges yet infinitely sexy Max while Behrs is Caroline the spoiled daughter of a Bernie Madoff type whose daddy’s fortune is lost.

The hilarious Liz Feldman, an out lesbian who’s written for Hot in Cleveland and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, is a writer and producer on 2 Broke Girls, which no doubt has helped the show get off on the right foot with it’s mildly Sapphic leanings.

In an interview with Autostraddle prior to the show’s debut Feldman weighed in on the lead characters saying, “They’re empowered, they’re irreverent and they’re smart. And the actresses, Kat Dennings (Max) and Beth Behrs (Caroline), have incredible chemistry with each other. And they’re both seriously funny. I think lesbians out there will fall in love with this show. I’m thinking that 2 Broke Girls is the comedy world’s answer to Rizzoli and Isles.”

2 Broke Girls premiered three weeks ago with 19.4 million viewers thanks in some part to a lead-in from the highly anticipated debut of Two and a Half Men starring Ashton Kutcher, according to THR. The show settled in a week later with 11.6 million viewers – still a strong showing.

The show joins Whitney (starring Broke Girls executive producer Whitney Cummings), the Christina Applegate and Will Arnett starrer Up All Night and the Zooey Deschanel-led New Girl as rookie sitcoms that have received full-season orders from their respective networks.
