CBS Picks Up Sex and the City for Poor People

101558650 CBS Picks Up Sex and the City for Poor PeopleCBS has purchased a show written on spec by Michael Patrick King, who formerly helmed Sex and the City, and comedian Whitney Cummings, Deadline reports.

The show is titled Two Broke Girls and sounds not too far out of Mr. King’s usual territory.

TV project [sic] centers on two 22-year-old girls who tackle life in New York: two broke girls, one expensive city. (It is safe to assume that the two won’t be wearing Manolo Blahniks.)

Safe indeed! Mr. Cummings is only 28 herself but she’s already attached to star in an NBC comedy about “a woman who’s afraid of marriage.” For his part, Mr. King has also another pilot with NBC, his is about a “50-something Beverly Hills hairdresser.” It is not a comedy.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
