More episodes ordered for the Judd Hirsch comedy.
November 27, 2017
CBS announced today that Season 2 of Superior Donuts will be getting more episodes added to it. The good news comes four weeks into the comedy's sophomore run and adds nine episodes to its original order of 13, bringing its total up to 22.
The series premiered early this year as a midseason entry and quickly proved to be a solid addition to the network's Monday night lineup. Its first season performed well enough for CBS to upgrade the show from midseason status to a regular fall entry for 2017-2018. Airing Monday nights at 9:00pm, Season 2 has been drawing ratings that are close to where it left off in Season 1.
Superior Donuts stars Judd Hirsch as an old-school owner of a donut shop in Chicago that hasn't seen much change since it first opened in the sixties. But while his shop remained frozen in time, the neighborhood around it was changing. With the business starting to fall on hard times, he starts to let his enterprising young employee help bring his shop into the 21st century.
I'm also impressed that Hirsch is still going strong at almost 83 years old!
THIS new season is nothing but the cast sitting around, taking turns doing really stale jokes like wooden puppets. I'm surprised there isn't a rimshot after each "gag". We gave up after three episodes.
For Maya, I don't really mind her being gone, but her departure wasn't ackowledged at all. In the finale, people were upset, but they kinda forgave her after she read her conclusion, and it really didn't feel like she was leaving.
I just don't like when people disappear from a show and nobody says anything ^^
As for Maya, in the season finale she finished her dissertation or whatever research she was sitting there working on every episode. They could have kept her on screen, but for me it makes more sense for her to be gone as people were upset with her, and she no longer has a need to be there. (Other than donuts of course)
Still a good show, though. Not a great sitcom, far from it, but clearly not a bad one.
