Michael Urie - CBS Cancels New Show Partners

After less than two months on air, CBS' Partners has been cancelled, The Wrap reported.

The show, which premiered on September 24, starred Michael Urie and David Krumholtz as the titular 'partners' who shared a rather intimate 'bromance' together.

The show never quite managed to reach its predicted audience numbers, with the last episode to be aired only managing a meagre 1.8 rating Nielsen rating in the key 18-49 demographic - down 14 percent from the previous week and its poorest audience turn-out to date. Despite being continually supported by CBS, the continued poor viewing figures proved to be the downfall of the show, which ultimately served as chief underachiever in the network's Monday night comedy lineup that includes 2 Broke Girls, How Met Your Mother and Mike & Molly.

The show was created by Will & Grace writers David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, who loosely based the show around their own lives given that the two central character both worked together and one of them was gay whilst the other was straight. This is the second freshman show cancelled by CBS this year, following the announcement earlier this month that Made in Jersey is also going under the network guillotine.

In the meantime, the slot left by Partners will be covered by re-runs of Two and a Half Men.
