Partners TV show supportIt wasn’t a great start for Partners. Lead-in How I Met Your Mother brought in a 3.4 demo rating and its lead-out, 2 Broke Girls, drew a 3.7 rating. Clearly, a large segment of the demo was avoiding Partners.

What’s more, the network was way down when comparing this sitcom to the How I Met Your Mother episode that aired in the same timeslot last year.


Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    im sad that this shown isnt aired anymore. i enjoyed it so much if i got out of class in time to watch. i never saw any commercials on it though before it came out. i dont think it was very well publicized, and wish it would come back

    I absolutely loved the show Partners, and was sadden because it was cancelled. That was the only show this season, besides Vegas, that I actually cared for

    The only reason the show had decent ratings was due to the fact that it was in a great time slot. I don’t think it would survive if it were on a different night. I did not care for the writing, too infantile to the point of not being funny, and I feel the actors weren’t believable because they over exaggerate their parts. I watch all of the other programs on Monday night, but would shut the TV off for a half an hour when Partners came on. No loss if it is cancelled.
