Partners: New CBS Sitcom; Cancel or Keep It?

CBS Partners TV series cancel or keep?Last week, CBS’ Partners debuted to some disappointing ratings. The network has cancelled numerous sitcoms in the past couple years — half-hour comedies that just didn’t measure up. Will Partners be dropped too? Would you cancel or keep it?

Partners follows a pair of best friends and business partners. Their relationship starts to change when one of them becomes engaged to be married. The sitcom cast includes Michael Urie, David Krumholtz, Sophia Bush, Brandon Routh, and Tracy Vilar.

The sitcom debuted with a 2.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.56 million total viewers. Those numbers look okay if you’re NBC but they’re quite low by CBS standards — and really low when compared to the network’s other sitcoms.

Should Partners be cancelled?

Of CBS’ current six sitcoms, Partners’ ratings are 23% below Mike & Molly’s, the next lowest performer.

Last week, lead-in How I Met Your Mother brought in a 3.6 demo rating and its lead-out, 2 Broke Girls, drew a 3.7 rating. Clearly, a large segment of the demo actively avoided Partners.

Partners TV show supportThe network could easily replace Partners with their usual utility player, Rules of Engagement. That sitcom has a track record of performing better in that same timeslot.

While CBS hasn’t said that they intend to move or cancel Partners yet, the show is clearly in major trouble after just one week and can use all of the viewer support it can get.

But what do you think? Do you like the Partners TV series? Do you think that it should be cancelled or renewed? Do you think the network should move it to another night?

    It is a fantastic show and they should move it to another network so us fans don’t have to endure the pain of losing it. KEEP THE SHOW ON AIR
