CBS Cancels We Are Men After Two Episodes — Will You Miss It?
We are bummed about this latest TV cancellation news.
CBS is canceling We Are Men after just two episodes, according to E! News. The show has been pulled from the schedule and will be replaced on Mondays at 8:30 p.m. by 2 Broke Girls, with reruns of Big Bang Theory subbing in at 9 p.m. until Mike and Molly returns in November.
The sitcom — about four recently single men living in a (rather sleazy) apartment complex together — got off to an inauspicious start in its premiere last week with 6.6 million viewers. Its second episode on October 7 dipped to 5.4 million sets of eyeballs.
The show had gotten dismal reviews, and we weren't big fans of it either. But we do love the big-name cast, which included Tony Shaloub of Monk, Kal Penn of Harold and Kumar, and Jerry O'Connell of approximately 3,000 other shows that were also canceled in their first season.
We're not sure exactly why those talented actors all signed on to do this show, but we're looking forward to seeing them in better projects.
We Are Men can perhaps take solace in knowing that it wasn't the first network show of the fall 2013 season to get the axe, as that dishonor went to ABC's drama Lucky 7, which was canceled last week.
So will you miss We Are Men, or are you still baffled that the show made it to the air?
