My Boys: TBS Sitcom Cancelled, No Season Five

My Boys canceledNo season five for PJ and the guys. As expected, TBS has cancelled My Boys after four seasons on the air.

My Boys revolves around Chicago sports writer PJ Franklin (Jordana Spiro) and her close group of male friends. Castmembers include Jamie Kaler, Jim Gaffigan, Kellee Stewart, Kyle Howard, Michael Bunin, and Reid Scott.

It’s been suspected for awhile that TBS wasn’t going to bring the show back for a fifth season but the cable channel wouldn’t confirm it. Speculation was that TBS execs feared that, by admitting the show was ending without a true series finale, not as many viewers would tune in. As it is, an average of only 784,000 people tuned in to see the last two installments.

That decision ultimately cost Spiro and Howard jobs on new NBC shows, Love Bites and Perfect Couples. They were under contract to TBS and NBC wasn’t willing to risk having to recast and reshoot if the cable channel brought My Boys back. Jim Gaffigan left after last season to focus on his stand-up.

What do you think? Are you satisfied with the way My Boys ended? How would you wrap up the series?
