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.

What do you think? Do you like the Partners TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or continue for a second season?
