TBS has landed the off-net rights to air CBS’ 2 Broke Girls.
The cable network will reportedly pay more than $1.5 million per episode to run repeats of the comedy. That’s close to the same the price TBS reportedly paid for CBS’ Big Bang Theory and ABC’s Modern Family. It’s also a really quick turnaround for the Warner Bros.-produced show – landing an off-net deal at the end of its first season. A TBS deal for CBS’ Mike & Molly, which just finished its second season, is expected as well.
TBS also recently rescued ABC’s Cougar Town from cancellation, which will continue on the cable network as a first-run series.
