CBS Series Becomes Fall TV Season's Second Casualty B&C
CBS has given a quick hook to one of its new fall shows, making it the second new series to bite the dust this season. B&C reports that the network yanked "We Are Men" from the schedule.
"Beginning next Monday, '2 Broke Girls' will take over 'We Are Men's' 8:30 p.m. time slot," the story reports. "Repeats of 'The Big Bang Theory' will air at 9 p.m. for the next three weeks, until Nov. 4 when 'Mike & Molly' returns for its fourth season premiere. Along with 'Mom' at 9:30 p.m., that hour will feature two Chuck Lorre-helmed series."
"We Are Men," starring Kal Penn, Chris Smith, Jerry O'Connell, Tony Shalhoub and Rebecca Breeds, never got any traction. The series premiered Sept. 30 to a 2.0 rating in the key 18-49 demo and 6.6 million total viewers, then fell to a 1.8 in the demo the following week, the report notes.
"'We Are Men' joins ABC's 'Lucky 7' as the season's casualties, while Fox already renewed 'Sleepy Hollow' for next season and NBC picked up 'The Blacklist' for a full season," the story reports.
