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).
