No. of Season: 1
CBS decided not to put more money into Broke, ultimately canceling the sitcom in May after one season. At the time of the cancellation, Broke was averaging a 0.69 rating in the 18-49 demo and 5.55 million viewers, making it one of the network’s lowest-rated comedy series for the 2019-20 season. It also had a middling premiere, with the numbers dropping pretty consistently week after week.
Conceived by Alex Herschlag, Broke follows a single suburban mother named Jackie (Pauley Perrette) who’s struggling to make ends meet while raising her young son, Sammy (Antonio Raul Corbo). Their lives are turned upside down when her estranged sister Elizabeth (Natasha Leggero) and brother-in-law Javier (Jaime Camil) move in after his father cuts them off. Izzy Diaz also stars as Javier’s fiercely loyal assistant, Luis.
