CBS has cancelled numerous sitcoms despite their having decent ratings. Will Partners join that list or will it survive to be renewed for a second season?
Partners typically airs on Monday nights at 8:30pm on CBS. The sitcom cast includes Michael Urie, David Krumholtz, Sophia Bush, Brandon Routh, Tracy Vilar, and Molly Shannon.

It 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.
