After being the first U.S. network to pull the trigger on the season’s first cancellation (Made in Jersey), CBS is sending another show to the TV graveyard by axing Partners.
According to Deadline.com, CBS is pulling the critically reviled sitcom from its Monday-night lineup after the show hit a series low this week. Reruns of better sitcoms will take its place. Partners, by the way, was the only new comedy CBS launched this season.
Partners, created by Will & Grace’s Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, starred Michael Urie and David Krumholtz as best friends (one gay, one straight), and was the subject of controversy due to striking similarities to a short-lived early-1990s sitcom that was also called Partners.
