‘Partners’ Cancelled By CBS

The CBS Network has pulled the plug on their new series Partners, Deadline has learned. The cancellation was announced after the series drew meager ratings each week. After dwindling to just 1.8 million viewers in its Monday night slot at 8:30 pm the comedy’s unfortunate fate became official.

While CBS was willing to air repeats of the series after halting production on the show, they have since made the decision to fill the empty time slot with repeat episodes of their award winning comedy ‘Two and a Half Men’ instead. ‘Friend Me’, a mid-season series that is new to the network is rumored to be up for the open time slot.

‘Partners’ comes from creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick of ‘Will & Grace’ fame. The new fall freshman vehicle followed two long time friends who learn to navigate their business together as architects, as well as their different personalities and their social lives. The cast included actors Michael Urie (Ugly Betty), David Krumholtz (Numb3rs), Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), Sophia Bush (One Tree Hill), Tracy Vilar (Double Jeopardy) and David Bloom (CSI: NY).

    I am so, so, so sad. I was ready to watch it in 13 minutes, and just found out. I hope Michael Urie will star in another show soon.

    I’m extremely upset that this show was pulled for two and 1/2 men, I could care less about that show. Partners always made me laugh and gave me something to look forward to on my monday night line up. I think CBS made a huge mistake. I had ranted and raved about this show to so many people and they loved it just as much. I feel like it wasn’t publically announced enough prior to it’s debut which in turn gave it low ratings. I strongly advise CBS to give Partners another chance.

    that is complete and utter bullshit. Honestly CBS made a mistake. It was a great show and an ever better cast. I laughed more with these episodes more than any season of anything else on TV. Shame on you CBS! DON’T YOU REALIZE PEOPLE WATCH THINGS ONLINE NOW A DAYS AND CANT AFFORD CABLE SO HOW WOULD YOU KNOW RATINGS?! UGH, maybe theres something I don’t understand about how they obtain ratings, but this show seemed like a keeper. SO upset, I got off of work and came straight home just to watch this!!

    they should cancel two and a half men instead, just watched one episode of two and a half men last night and it was horrible, they should be aware of the fact that the show is done for after Charlie Sheen’s departure, it’s just sad how the network tries to hold on to a show that is clearly not working to prove a point. Give other new and better show a fair chance instead of canceling it the moment something don’t look good, man up CBS, stop being such coward!! btw, there is this not so new thing call INTERNET and people prefer watching your shows on it rather on TV, not everyone can afford cable!!

    Partners was one of the few shows my husband and I laughed out loud to each week. We loved it! It was definitely funnier than Two and a Half Men. Can’t the creators get it on a cable station like they did with Cougartown?
