A comedy following the owner of a donut shop in a rapidly-gentrifying Chicago neighborhood.

Arthur is an old-school, no-nonsense owner of a small Chicago donut shop that hasn't changed since it first opened back in 1969. Yet while his shop stays frozen in time, the neighborhood around it is seeing some major changes. Still, Arthur has no interest in selling cronuts and designer coffees.

But with the donut shop falling on hard times, Arthur starts to realize that something has got to give.

Enter Franco, a young man who manages to talk his way into becoming Arthur's one and only employee. It isn't long before Franco's enterprising spirit convinces Arthur that he has to bring his business into the 21st century and embrace all the changes around him.

A funny show I miss. Yes, this show and too many others are getting into social comedy rather than the purpose we watch TV is escape from all that drama. Producers and writers have lost focus on what the TV watching community wants.
Want this show back with its original story lines.

Good at first but got way to focused on making social statements vs making us laugh... needs to go.

I must admit I am the type to post reviews about a show only AFTER it's been cancelled. I had no foresight about the show during it's 34 episode run because then I look like an ass.Now I appear to be a "genius"

The Plopster was wrong again as usual, and wishes a season 3 could have been realized.

Love the show. Glad to see Judd H. and Katie S. back on TV. Never would have guessed the two would be in a show together!! OK... What flavor are the pink topped donuts? There are more than one, and all can't have strawberry icing!!! Any ideas??? :-)

This show's lack of originality is stunning. It rips off "Chico and the Man", "Cheers" and a parade of one dimensional characters from the last 50 years of TV. Judd Hirsch is a great casting choice but he is made to play a cliche' of a grump with the heart of gold. Franco is the minority kid who is so darned charming, Arthur is won over in all of one episode. There is no story arc or complexity and the audience is denied the opportunity to slowly learn to care about these characters. Instead, the producers and writers use a paint by number kit to make you care and we don't. The blonde, pseudo intellectual waitress with her nose in a book is hinting at Diane Chambers but "Superior Donuts" shows that Glen Charles, Les Charles and James Burroughs are not coming through that door. If only they could. The Arab character joking about terrorism was just revolting. It's hard enough to make that topic funny and it would be a challenge to mine laughs from promoting a hateful stereotype even for good writers. Is this all that network TV can offer today?
