Partners: Sitcom Cancelled by CBS

Partners TV show cancelled by CBSIt was only a matter of time. CBS has cancelled Partners, the new sitcom from Will & Grace creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan.

Revolving around a pair of best friend architects, Partners stars Michael Urie, David Krumholtz, Sophia Bush, Brandon Routh, and Tracy Vilar.

The show debuted to a 2.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.56 million viewers, substantially lower than the CBS sitcoms that preceeded and followed it. The numbers have gotten worse as the season has progressed and Monday’s episode hit a new low with a 1.8 demo rating and 5.48 million viewers.

While those numbers would have been good enough to keep the show on the air on NBC or FOX, they weren’t high enough for CBS. They’ve opted not to order a full season of episodes and have pulled the show from the schedule effective immediately.

Partners TV show supportSitcom reruns will start airing on Monday. CBS hasn’t said what will replace Partners on a more permanent basis but Rules of Engagement, the utility player that used to air on Mondays, seems a likely candidate.

What do you think? Are you sorry to see Partners cancelled? Why do you think that it didn’t catch on?

You can’t judge just by watching the first 2 episodes. That’s so not fair !!

Glad to see it go. It should have been gone since episode one. I gave it 4 episodes and ha, surprise, I couldn’t even finish watching the forth episode. The writing was so bad, characters over acted, overly cliche, and why on earth there’s that oh so annoying laugh track? Bad writing+over acting+laugh track DO NOT and will NEVER make the show or any shows, any funnier. It simply is a bad show. It’s a rotten egg, and there’s no way you can make it fresh again.

I thought it was a decent show, and cleared my schedule to watch it every Monday evening. This sucks, CBS!

I am SO upset about this. A friend and I were just talking about how we laughed uncontrollable almost every second of every episode! I’ve never seen a funnier show.

That’s a shame! I laughed out loud more watching that show than most of the crap that is on the air right now.

Not surprised. This show never looked appealing from the series previews, at least for me.

Put Two and a Half Men back on Mondays, just switch 2 Broke Girls and put it back to 8:30 and Two and a Half Men back to 9:00, and put Rules of Engagement back to Thursdays at 8:30.

Mondays:

8:00 – How I Met Your Mother
8:30 – 2 Broke Girls
9:00 – Two and a Half Men
9:30 – Mike & Molly

Thursdays:

8:00 – The Big Bang Theory
8:30 – Rules of Engagement

In all honesty I’m surprised that it lasted as long as it did, I gave it a fair 2-3 episodes back in the Summer from seeing the promo videos.
