Friends with Better Lives: Cancelled Sitcom to Be Saved?

Friends with Better Lives: canceled sitcom or season two?Yesterday, CBS cancelled Friends with Better Lives after just five episodes. That’s a pretty quick decision. The studio thinks it’s too quick.

Friends with Better Lives revolves around six young people who are at various stages of their lives — married, divorced, newly engaged, and single. Each wonders if the others have it better. The cast includes Majandra Delfino, Kevin Connolly, Brooklyn Decker, Rick Donald, Zoe Lister-Jones, and James Van Der Beek.

The sitcom premiered to positive numbers (following the series finale of How I Met Your Mother) but the ratings have fallen quite a bit in subsequent weeks.

The numbers were too low for CBS but 20th Century Fox Television, the studio that produces the show, has decided to try shopping the series elsewhere.

CBS will presumably air the rest of the original 13 episodes so it seems like this would be a very tough sell. Still, you never know. If the studio is motivated enough to make a deal, we may see a second season of Friends with Better Lives yet.

What do you think? Would you like to see a second season of Friends with Better Lives? Would you follow the series to cable or some other outlet?

I loved this show! I am so upset that it was cancelled. One of the funniest shows that I have watched since Friends and How I Met Your Mother.

Didn’t Friends start out kind of slow? Come on… I can think of a few worn out shows you can ditch to put this one back on.

This show was so funny. The actors have great comedic timing. Why the hellllll would you cancel it?

I want this show back. They have so many stupid “reality” shows but cancel a funny show-one of the best in a long time.

I can’t believe this show was cancelled! It was the next “Friends”. As the biggest Friends fan, this is a great compliment. I was so looking forward to the next season. Another reason to not watch network TV. I suppose another ridiculous reality show will replace ths awesome show. Thanx network TV.
