CBS Cancels 'We Are Men', Sets Return Date for 'Mike and Molly'
CBS has officially canceled "We Are Men" after just two episodes. The network pulls the freshman comedy from the Monday line-up and will replace it with "2 Broke Girls", moving the Kat Dennings-starring sitcom a half hour earlier from 9 P.M. to 8:30 P.M.
Repeats of "The Big Bang Theory" will fill the 9 P.M. slot for the next few weeks. Then, starting November 4, "Mike & Molly" will take over the timeslot when it returns with its fourth season.
"We Are Men" starred Tony Shalhoub, Jerry O'Connell, Kal Penn and Christopher Smith as four single guys living in an apartment complex who unexpectedly find camaraderie over their many missteps in love. It opened to 6.6 million viewers before falling to 5.4 million viewers in its second outing despite its strong lead-in, "How I Met Your Mother".
This, however, is not the first cancellation in 2013 Fall TV season. ABC pulled the plug on rookie drama series "Lucky 7" earlier this month, also after just two episodes. The lottery-themed show debuted to 4.4 million viewers and a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 demo before losing 50% of its viewers in second week.
