Worst Week, the sitcom that stars Kyle Bornheimer as an entertainment magazine editor who will do anything to please his girlfriend's parents but instead becomes a one-man wrecking crew whenever he's around them, won't be gracing our small screens tonight on CBS.  Instead, the network has opted to re-air the pilot episode of Gary Unmarried for a one-night Monday trial tonight at 9:30pm, occupying the slot after Two and a Half Men.

Created by Ed Yeager, Gary Unmarried stars Jay Mohr as a father who is struggling with life after divorce.  In the pilot episode, viewers will learn that Gary has recently become single after 15 years of marriage with obnoxiously health-conscious ex-wife Allison.  While dealing with post-divorce mayhem, Gary tries to navigate the waters of the dating scene and at the same time, be a good father to children, Louise and Todd.
Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.

The sitcom formerly known as Project Gary also stars Paula Marshall as Allison Brooks, Kathryn Newton as Louise Brooks, Ryan Malgarini as Todd Brooks, Jaime King as Vanessa Flood, Ed Begley Jr. as Dr. Walter Krandall, and Al Madrigal as Dennis Lopez.

Meanwhile, the single-serving of Gary Unmarried tonight seems to serve one of two purposes for CBS.  As it pairs up with TV's top rated comedy, Gary Unmarried will be given the opportunity to capitalize on the network's strongest available timeslot, adding eyes that could follow the sitcom back to its usual Wednesday schedule at 8:30pm.

But then again, the Monday broadcast could also be a try-out in case Worst Week continues to struggle with keeping hold of the Two and a Half Men audience.  Since it's premiere on September 24, Gary Unmarried has delivered respectable returns as a lead-in to The New Adventures of Old Christine.  In its most recent broadcast, the Mohr's sitcom set series highs in viewers as well as adults 19-49 and 25-54.
