CBS Cancels 'We Are Men,' 'Mike and Molly' to Return in November

The second casualty of the fall TV season is in. Following ABC's cancellation of Lucky 7, CBS has axed new comedy We Are Men after just two episodes as well.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


The Monday schedule for CBS will get a bit a shake-up as well to try and fix the low ratings for its roster. Starting on October 14, new episodes of 2 Broke Girls will move to 8:30pm in an attempt to retain more viewers from the network's top-rated Monday show, How I Met Your Mother. Mom will remain at 9:30pm, and repeats of The Big Bang Theory will fill the gap at 9pm for three weeks.

Then, on November 4, the fourth season of Mike and Molly will officially begin, taking over 9pm on Mondays. The show was originally slated for mid-season, but the early return is an attempt to shore up the Monday ratings with a more established hit series.

We Are Men and Lucky 7 are both canceled after just two episodes, and both were in my predictions to be the first shows cut from the new fall season. We Are Men premiered with just 6.61 million viewers and dropped to 5.41 million in week 2. Despite an improvement for How I Met Your Mother, the rest of CBS' Monday line-up has been way down, with 2 Broke Girls getting record lows while new shows Mom and Hostages have suffered as well.

Here's the revised CBS Monday night schedule:

8pm: How I Met Your Mother
8:30pm: 2 Broke Girls
9pm: The Big Bang Theory repeats (Mike and Molly takes over November 4)
9:30pm: Mom
10pm: Hostages


With two new shows down, what do you think will be the next new series of the season to get canceled? ABC's Betrayal, FOX's Dads and NBC's Welcome to the Family could all be on the chopping block soon.
