CBS Parts Ways With ‘Partners’
The comedy, which starred Sophia Bush (One Tree Hill), Michael Urie (Ugly Betty), David Krumholtz (Numb3rs) and Brandon Routh (Chuck) failed to attract viewers. It’s most recent episode garnered a 1.8 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic, a series low. Comedy repeats will begin airing in Partners’ timeslot, Mondays at 8:30.
Will & Grace creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan created the series, which they based partially on their real-life friendship and working relationship. I LOVED Will & Grace and Partners gave me that warm, fuzzy familiar feeling of the Will & Grace gang.
On the cancellation of Partners, Sophia Bush took to her Twitter to say:
This upsets me so much. Every time I fall in love with a show that puts a smile on my face, they cancel it! There’s so much garbage on TV nowadays and they always seem to cancel the shows with real substance and heart. I don’t think Partners had a fair chance. It only aired 6 episodes during the Monday night 8:30pm timeslot, competing with NBC’s The Voice and The CW’s 90210, among others. How is that fair? Maybe if they would of aired it on a different night, they’d have better ratings. If you feel the same way, go here to sign the petition to help save Partners! Until then, let’s just sit here and weep and reminisce over the only 6 episodes we’ll ever see…
Are you disappointed to see Partners go?
