What’s Worth Watching: One Cool Customer on 2 Broke Girls
2 Broke Girls, “And the Great Unwashed” (Monday, Feb. 23, 8/7c, CBS)
In 2013, Valerie Harper announced she had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and doctors estimated she only had three months left to live. But the television icon, who charmed audiences in the ’70s as Rhoda Morgenstern on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and its spinoff, Rhoda, has spent the last two years defying that harrowing prognosis with stints on Hot in Cleveland, Dancing With the Stars and American Dad! Tonight, the 75-year-old revisits her sitcom roots as Nola, a successful photographer who has been keeping a secret from Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs). Nola’s guidance and assistance might help the two cash-strapped waitresses make it after all.
