Partners Cancelled

CBS brings down the ax on their horrible new comedy Partners. I only made it through an episode, but sorry if anyone was really enjoying it. It's being replaced with a 2.5 Men rerun for at least a week.

Re: Partners Cancelled

I watched one episode because the Sklar Brothers were in it, and it was a painfully unfunny show.

I'm not surprised at all. Even Rules of Engagement is better than this dreck.

Re: Partners Cancelled

Partners "was" insubstantial, but it fulfils the criteria of a sitcom 20 years ago.

I think I was beginning to like it.

The first ep was absolutely terrible, but I stuck around because of Bush. I quite liked the other episodes.

Re: Partners Cancelled

Maybe with another group of writers, it could have been funny. With the writers they had, though, every episode was a rerun of the forumula they developed in the pilot.

Straight man and girlfriend have romance.
Gay man inserts himself in SM&G's life.
SM begs GM to stop. GM delivers "life lesson" to SM's GF, while GM's boyfriend does his best impersonation of cardboard.
Sassy secretary delivers one sassy line.
GM's plot fails. SM saves the day. GM says thank you and vows to never do this again.
Rinse, repeat for next episode.

Re: Partners Cancelled

It wasn't going anywhere and the plots were rehashed but it was nice. You know what show I miss that had a really short run was the show that was a few seasons ago with Jason Biggs I think and friend of his with Sarah Chaulke. I liked that show.

^ Mad Love, I liked that show too. Labine and Greer are especially hilarious.

Re: Partners Cancelled

Biggs was the weak link.

If that show had focussed on Judy Greer and Tyler Labine and their hatefucking.

Re: Partners Cancelled

They were easily the most interesting, but that's because Biggs played the straight-man.

Well it's not like Biggs was ever super funny. The only reason he's famous is because he stuck his dick in a pie.

I think piefucker has outlived his 15 minutes.

Currently he's playing a cartoon Turtle on Nickelodeon.

Re: Partners Cancelled

I'd say Eugenie Levy is probably better known than Biggs. At least that's what I'd think. Then if you don't know who Stiflers Mom is you've lived under a rock for far too long. You may not know her name, but lets be honest it wasn't her name you were watching it for.
