TBS announced today that both of their hit sitcoms Sullivan & Son and Men at Work have been renewed for third seasons. Sullivan & Son, a comedy about a lawyer (Steve Byrne) who gives up his high-powered job to help his father run the family bar, was given a 13-episode order, while Men at Work,a workplace comedy starring Danny Masterson, Michael Cassidy and Adam Busch, will be back for a 10-episode third season. Meanwhile, the Howie Mandel hosted prank show Deal With It was given the greenlight for a second season.
“Sullivan & Son and Men At Work have really caught on with TBS’s core viewers, and Deal With It has burst out of the gate as one of the summer’s most popular new cable series,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM) in a statement. “We are very excited to be expanding our relationship with the producers, cast members and production teams on these three series.”
