    :bigcry: We Are Men†is no more.
    The comedy, which starred Jerry O’Connell, Tony Shalhoub, Chris Smith and Kal Penn, has been pulled from the network’s schedule, effective Oct. 14.

    “2 Broke Girls†will move into the show’s 8:30 time slot, with “Big Bang Theory†repeats filling the 9 p.m. time slot for the time being, and “Mike & Molly†taking up the 9 p.m. timeslot Nov. 4 when it premieres its fourth season.
    The series, about a group of single men living in the same apartment building, premiered Sept. 30 to a 2.0 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic — the network’s lowest-rated in-season comedy debut on record, and dropped from there with its second season.

    The new Chuck Lorre comedy “Mom†will remain in place at 9:30, and the freshman drama “Hostages†will retain its 10 p.m. timeslot.
    The rescheduling removes the weak link from CBS’s Monday night schedule, and also pairs “Mom†with other Chuck Lorre series in the forms of the hugely popular “Big Bang Theory†and “Mike & Molly†which could help bolster the show’s chances. (“Mom,†starring Allison Janney and Anna Faris, premiered to a solid 2.5/6.)

    I guess CBS is smarter than NBC which let Whitney last 2 whole seasons.

    But, what about the Stern Effect, didn't the 20 million listeners tune in after O'Connell's appearance.

    Is there any show that's on regular cable that's actually funny? (I'm talking major networks and shows like Louie don't count) I watched an episode of the Big Bang Theory for the first time this week and didn't crack one smile and I guess its one of the biggest comedy shows on television. Fucking horrible.

    I hated that show with a passion for years. Then for some reason we recorded it in syndication. It's not Seinfeld or Arrested Development but once you learn the characters the humor makes more sense and seems less broad. It's uneven but an amusing way to kill a half hour.

    CBS didn't give it a chance for the slow build to kick into gear.

    That O’Connell magic never fails, now killing shows faster than ever before.

    The first three seasons of Californication made me laugh out loud more than every other sitcom on TV combined.

    Howard knew that show was garbage, you could tell by his tone of voice - but he didn't want to insult "friend of the show Jerry O'Connell" to his face. Howard has no influence anymore - his "endorsement" of shows with Shitney Cummings and serial losers O'Connell and Will Arnett have produced nothing.

    I watched the show. It had potential. Oh well, they cancelled ER after a few episodes too.



    Not 90s medical drama, the 70s medical comedy.

    life isn't fair, but i don't know that we can assume jerry got to go home and fuck rebecca. he probably snuck home and tried to play a video game, she caught him and punched him in the face. ok, i'm jealous of that, too.
