U.S. comedy We Are Men has been pulled from the air after just two episodes after failing to impress viewers.

Critics savaged the show, which stars Jerry O'Connell, Tony Shalhoub, Chris Smith and Kal Penn, upon its debut last month (Sep13), branding it "lazy" and "outdated".

The series focused on four men who bond over their hatred of women after being dumped. It will be taken off the schedule from 14 October (13).

Taking to Twitter.com to confirm the news, O'Connell writes, "We Are Men cancelled. What a fun ride. Love those guys."
