According to a report by Deadline.com's Nellie Andreeva, CBS has canceled freshman comedy "Partners" after the program hit a new series low in the coveted Adults 18-49 demo (1.8 rating) this past Monday. The series starred Brandon Routh (“One Life to Live”), Michael Urie (“Ugly Betty”), David Krumholtz (“Numb3rs”) and Sophia Bush (“One Tree Hill”). The series was based on the lives of creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick as two life-long friends and business partners whose “bromance” is put to the test when one of them becomes engaged.
During its premiere week in the National ratings (w/o 09/03/12), the newly-rechristened “LIVE! with Kelly and Michael” finished as TV’s No. 1 syndicated talk show in Households (2.8 rating), Total Viewers (3.6 million) and Women 25-54 (1.5 rating).
During its second week up against season premieres of nearly every other syndicated talker, newly-rechristened “LIVE! with Kelly and Michael” finished as the No. 1 talk show overall in Households (leading the premiere week of “Ellen” by 2 shares and tied in rating – 2.8/10 vs. 2.8/8). Its top-ranked position becomes even more impressive considering “LIVE! with Kelly and Michael” airs earlier in the day with lower overall HUT levels.
