TV show description:

This comedic TV series is based on the lives of creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick. It's about two life-long best friends and business partners whose "bromance" is tested when one of them is engaged to be married.

Joe (David Krumholtz) is an accomplished architect who leads with his head and not his heart, especially in his love life. That's in stark contrast to his gay best friend and co-worker, Louis (Michael Urie). He's spontaneous, emotional and prone to exaggeration.

Both men have found joy in their love lives. Joe is newly engaged to Ali (Sophia Bush), a

Partners: Sitcom Cancelled by CBS

It was only a matter of time. CBS has cancelled Partners, the new sitcom from Will & Grace creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan.

Revolving around a pair of best friend architects, Partners stars Michael Urie, David Krumholtz, Sophia Bush, Brandon Routh, and Tracy Vilar.

The show debuted to a 2.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.56 million viewers, substantially lower than the CBS sitcoms that preceeded and followed it. The numbers have gotten worse as the season has progressed and Monday's episode hit a new low with a 1.8 demo rating and 5.48 million viewers.

While those numbers would have been good enough to keep the show on the air on NBC or Fox, they weren't high enough for CBS. They've opted not to order a full season of episodes and have pulled the show from the schedule effective immediately.

CBS has cancelled numerous sitcoms despite their having decent ratings. Will Partners join that list or will it survive to be renewed for a second season?

Can "Partners" Be Saved? We Offer Our 5 Fixes

I'm rooting for CBS' Partners, and not just because it's a sitcom featuring two gay characters in prominent roles: It's because when new shows about gay characters are pitched, risk-averse TV suits say things like, "Yes, your show might work! But before we give it a shot, we'll have to see how Partners does first." That's right: There are people in positions of power who believe that if one sitcom about gay people fails, others are doomed too.

It's unfair and doesn't make sense, but the bottom line is if Partners gains traction and a following, we're more likely to see other multicamera shows with openly gay characters. I'm happy for The New Normal's full season pickup and Modern Family's continued success, but the world of multicamera is its own quaint hamlet of delights, and I'd like to see more gay characters on TV who crack jokes and pause for the laugh track.

Partners: New CBS Sitcom; Cancel or Keep It?

Last week, CBS' Partners debuted to some disappointing ratings. The network has cancelled numerous sitcoms in the past couple years -- half-hour comedies that just didn't measure up. Will Partners be dropped too? Would you cancel or keep it?

Partners follows a pair of best friends and business partners. Their relationship starts to change when one of them becomes engaged to be married. The sitcom cast includes Michael Urie, David Krumholtz, Sophia Bush, Brandon Routh, and Tracy Vilar.

The sitcom debuted with a 2.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.56 million total viewers. Those numbers look okay if you're NBC but they're quite low by CBS standards -- and really low when compared to the network's other sitcoms.

  Of CBS' current six sitcoms, Partners' ratings are 23% below Mike & Molly's, the next lowest performer.

'Partners' will make you laugh in spite of stale jokes

In this age of smart, single-camera comedies, watching CBS' new sitcom "Partners" feels like an unwelcome walk down memory lane. It's filled with cliches, obvious jokes and seemingly canned laughter...but you'll still laugh in spite of yourself.

"Partners" follows the lifelong Bff-ship between David Krumholtz's Joe and Michael Urie's Louis, who are now partners in their own New York City architecture firm. Krumholtz is the likable Jewish everyguy; Urie is his overwhelming gay friend.

Complicating their bromance is the fact that Joe has just gotten engaged to jewelry designer Ali (Sophia Bush), and Urie is in a long-term relationship with the handsome but dimwitted nurse Wyatt (Brandon Routh). Urie meddles; hijinks ensue.

Despite the old-school, obvious gay/straight jokes that pepper the sitcom, it's hard not to see some potential in the cast of the comedy, from "Will & Grace" creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick.
