Max Finds Out Caroline Is a Riches to Rags Story on '2 Broke Girls' (VIDEO)

At the heart of '2 Broke Girls' (Mon., 9:30PM ET on CBS) is this 'Odd Couple' relationship that springs up between seasoned and ultra-jaded waitress Max and Caroline, the trust fund baby who finds herself suddenly broke and out on her own.

The girls first meeting tried to establish a good cadence between the girls, as Max discovers that Caroline's father "ripped off the entire city," and just how rich Caroline was. But the connection between the two never really comes together this episode.

'2 Broke Girls' premiere: Will you spend time with Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs?

But the premise, some of the stereotyped supporting players and CBS' attempt at hipster-lampooning could all get old, real...
