CBS has dug an early grave for its new sitcom We Are Men
. Despite its high-profile cast and time slot right after How I Met Your Mother
, the show debuted with dismal ratings and didn't pick up from there. After just two episodes, CBS decided to give it the axe
We Are Men
, which starred Jerry O'Connel, Chris Smith, Kal Penn, and Tony Shalhoub, told the story of four single men who lived in the same short-term condo building. The focus was the bromance of these four men, who unexpectedly bond over their many romantic failings.
Fortunately, CBS probably isn't hurting too badly over it. They still maintain a commanding lead over other networks in terms of total viewership. 2 Broke Girls will now air half an hour earlier, in the 8:30 p.m. slot We Are Men used to occupy. In the 9 o'clock spot, CBS will air repeats of its hit series The Big Bang Theory for the next few weeks. Starting November 4, Mike and Molly will return for its fourth season, so we can expect to see some more schedule shuffling for that.
is that moving things around will also give CBS's other floundering new sitcom, Mom
, a chance to gain a foothold with viewers. No word has been given yet on the future of Hostages
, which has had similarly poor ratings, so it seems CBS's 10 o'clock drama is safe for at least another week.
