When you throw out wisdom, you extend your plan and get more donuts — or at least that’s what CBS did yesterday. We reported that the network declined ordering any more episode of Wisdom of the Crowd, but two other series did get full season orders yesterday: Man with a Plan and Superior Donuts. Both comedies are in their second seasons and got full-season pickups coming off their season premieres.
Superior Donuts stars Jermaine Fowler and Judd Hirsch and kicked off their sophomore season on October 30th. The Matt LeBlanc lead Man with a Plan debuted on November 13th. Both series will now run complete second seasons during this broadcast year.
LeBlanc has been around a while, most notably playing Joey Tribbiani on the hit series Friends and then spinning off into his own show Joey. He also played a version of himself in the highly acclaimed series Episodes. He made a few forays into film with the Charlie’s Angels franchise and Lost In Space, but most of his roles have been on television.
Created by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tracy Letts, Superior Donuts focuses on an aging Polish owner of a donut shop and his young African-American employee.
Man with a Plan airs Mondays at 8:30 p.m. ET with Superior Donuts following at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
