As the fall TV season marches on, more shows are either extending their stays or falling by the wayside. This week, NBC ordered up four more episodes of sitcom Guys With Kids, which is not exactly a full-season pick-up (it brings the total to 17 episodes), but is still a somewhat surprising vote of confidence, given how the show has struggled in the ratings. And ABC had previously picked up a full 22-episode season of The Neighbors, which was possibly the worst-reviewed new comedy of the season but has held its own on the network's Wednesday comedy night.
Not so lucky is CBS' Partners, which has been pulled after six episodes, effective immediately, to be replaced by repeats of other CBS sitcoms, starting with Two and a Half Men. I wasn't a fan of Partners, but I certainly don't think it's any worse than Guys With Kids or The Neighbors. For some reason, though, those shows have managed to find an audience, at least for now.
