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?

    I would have ended it by all of them going to a Cubs game, and the crappy stadium collapses on them cause it’s such a piece of crap. The end.

    I’m so sad they ended after only 4 seasons! This is one of my favorite TV shows, and is way better than a lot of other crap most channels play. Such a cute and light hearted comedy, love Jordano Spiro, and the fact that I can totally relate to her and the whole concept (Chicago Cubs, Chicago, cute tomboy with a group of guy friends, etc.) They need to bring this back for at least one more season, if not more.

    I DON’T THINK IT’S FAIR THAT THEY CANCELED THE SHOW I LOVED THIS SHOW AN IDENTIFIED MYSELF WITH PJ THERE’S NOT TO MANY SHOWS LIKE THIS ONE. THER’S ALWAYS SHOWS THAT ARE REALITY TV SHOWS OR TEEN SHOW NOT VERY OFTEN YOU GET A SHOW LIKE THIS ONE WHERE IT TALKED ABOUT SPORTS BUT ALSO ABOUT LIFE I’M REALLY GOING TO MISS IT. :(

    I agree with all these comments- especially Judi. They took place of “Friends” for me. I’ve watched all 4 Seasons at least 10 times already since I keep it in the background. It’s like comfort food for the soul…. they keep me company. Bring them back or pitch a movie to end the whole thing. I love this show. Now I gotta’ look for another show that I can get attached to and hope they don’t cancel that one as well.

    I hate how they ended ‘My Boys’. It is a great series it deserves to be ended in a real matter. Why leave loose ends like that? Bring back one last season to wrap it up. Dont end things like this left up in the air.

    I loved this show. So funny. I don’t see why you couldn’t do just one last season to cap it off its not like the last couple seasons were long anyway. Please bring it back.
