CBS is banking on old-school sitcom nostalgia for their latest comedy offering, ‘Superior Donuts’, by casting TV veterans Judd Hirsch and Katey Sagal in lead roles, but insiders say those prickly pros are leaving a bad taste in everyone’s mouth!

“Judd and Katey have been in the business a long time,” said a media insider. “People with that kind of experience are set in their ways — and often at each other’s throats.”

“Judd’s success in ‘Taxi’ and Katey’s in ‘Married with Children’ makes each of them think they’re headliners — and not the other,” claimed another source to The National ENQUIRER.

Despite friction among the two leads, the network has high hopes for the show, giving it the coveted time slot right after mega-hit The Big Bang Theory, which has had Judd guest star as Leonard Hofstadter’s father, Alfred.

“Katey and Judd are pros. They know the show is a priority for CBS, so they are going to make it work,” said an industry vet. “This is a great shot at a huge payday!”

While the bickering continues, another source claims the real root of the old-timers’ discontent is up-and-comer Jermaine Fowler, who’s set to steal their thunder.

“CBS has been really hot on Fowler for a while,” said the insider of the rising star.

“The top brass are expecting him to be the breakout star who really makes this show a huge hit!”
