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.

    Got hooked right away! Loved the show. Told some people to watch it, waiting and waiting for the episode, only to hear it canceled. So sad! The show was hilarious!!!! Please bring it back!!

    I recently started watching this show a couple of weeks ago and was immediately hooked! I love it and got my friends into it as well. However, I’m very sad that it got cancelled already. Not sure if it had anything to do with similarities of the 1995 Partners series? In any case, I hope this show gets revived….oh got a text from the future and it did! :)

    Thought to show was funny. Urie and the rest of the cast seem to have terrific chemistry. I like it, much better then all the crap reality shows.

    This is one of the best new comedies “Lewis” is great, so hilarious. I would be sad if this show got cancelled already. I don’ t think it had much of a chance yet. If other networks can keep shows like Last Man Standing, then Partners certainly deserves a fighting chance.

    I look forward to this show every Monday and would be really bummed if it got cancelled. The characters really compliment each other and always make me laugh. I really hope Partners doesn’t get cancelled. I hate when I get into a show and then the season finale rolls around, something big happens and then leave you with a cliffhanger, only to find out the show will not return the next season. Please don’t cancel Partners. Thanks!!! :)

    I think CBS should re think their decision.This was one of very few sitcoms that was so funny and has a great cast with some very strong talent. I couldn’t wait until Monday night to watch it and I even got co workers and friends to tune in. I would even PVR it and watch it again and again and ever episode so far was hilarious.All I can say is that if it doesn’t return CBS has lost a viewer.

    This show is really hilarious! It’s this decade’s Will and Grace so to speak. I think CBS would be fools to cancel it and try to replace it with something else. It’s surrounded by other solid sitcoms that didn’t start off great but have evolved into a pretty decent line-up for Monday nights. I hope they don’t cancel this show.
