CBS announced some midseason changes today to its prime-time schedule, as the network is making room for the new comedy series “Superior Donuts.”

The series, which stars Judd Hirsch and Jermaine Fowler, will bow with a special preview on Thursday, Feb. 2 (8:30-9 p.m. ET/PT). The sitcom then moves to its regular Monday 9-9:30 p.m. ET/PT time period on Feb. 6.

“2 Broke Girls” will shift to 9:30-10 p.m. ET/PT following the season finale of “The Odd Couple” Jan. 30.

In an announcement about the new comedy, CBS says: “‘Superior Donuts’ follows the relationship between the gruff owner (Hirsch) of a small donut shop, his enterprising new young employee (Fowler) and their loyal patrons, in a quickly gentrifying Chicago neighborhood. Based on the play by Tracy Letts, the comedy also stars Katey Sagal, David Koechner, Maz Jobrani, Anna Baryshnikov, Darien Sills-Evans and Rell Battle. Bob Daily, Neil Goldman, Garrett Donovan, Mark Teitelbaum, John Montgomery, Michael Rotenberg, Josh Lieberman and Jermaine Fowler are the executive producers for CBS Television Studios.”
