CBS Cancels ‘We Are Men,’ ‘Mike & Molly’ To Return in November

CBS We Are Men Canceled Mike and Molly Season 4
CBS

Boy, that Jerry O’Connell just can’t catch a break. After ABC had the unfortunate honor of fall 2013′s first cancellation in ‘Lucky’ 7,’ CBS is bringing up the rear with its fall-flat comedy ‘We Are Men.’ Pulled after two episodes, the show — which starred Kal Penn, Tony Shalhoub and O’Connell — will fortunately bring about the November return of ‘Mike & Molly,’ which had previously been absent from CBS’s immediate lineup.

Though both its pilot and follow-up were critically panned, ‘We Are Men’ still managed to garner a Tuesday sum of 5.4 million viewers and a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating, admittedly low by CBS standards, especially for following ‘How I Met Your Mother.’ Instead, ‘2 Broke Girls‘ will move up by half an hour to the 8:30 P.M. slot, followed by ‘Big Bang Theory‘ repeats that lead into the Anna Faris comedy ‘Mom.’ Finally, ‘Mike and Molly’ will take over the 9:00 P.M. slot with its fourth season premiere on November 4.

Formerly titled ‘Ex-Men,’ ‘We Are Men’ featured Penn, O’Connell, Shaloub and newcomer Chris Smith as divorced or single men living in a short-term rental complex. Trust us, it was about as funny as it sounds.

Well, what say you? Who do you think from the new crop will be the next to fall victim to cancellation? Should CBS have given ‘We Are Men’ another chance? Watch the original trailer below, and give us your take in the comments!
