CBS Puts Partners Out of Its Misery

PARTNERS is a comedy about two life-long best friends and   business partners whose √¢¬?¬?bromance√¢¬?¬ù is tested when one of them is   engaged to be married. David Krumholtz (left) stars as Joe, a   newly engaged, accomplished architect who leads with his head   and not his heart, and Michael Urie stars as Louis, Joe√¢¬?¬?s gay co-  worker and best friend who is spontaneous, emotional and prone to   exaggeration.  PARTNERS premieres Fall 2012, Mondays, (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Photo: Matt Kennedy/CBS  √?¬©2012 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved.

In our story yesterday about why MobDoc™ and Partners were still on the air, we noted that "this week's worst-yet ratings for Partners — and the impact its poor lead-in numbers are having on its follow-up, 2 Broke Girls — has some industry insiders wondering just how much longer [CBS chief Nina] Tassler will continue to be patient." Turns out the answer was: Less than 24 hours. The Eye has just pulled the comedy from its lineup, effective immediately. Repeats of higher-rated CBS sitcoms will air in the 8:30 p.m. Monday timeslot for the next few weeks, with a replacement debuting in early January.
