Comedy is all about timing, and that's especially true for the rhythmic humor found in a well-constructed multi-camera comedy. Martin Lawrence and Kelsey Grammer have proven adept at good timing and comedy, so the idea of the two actors paired up in a new series is brimming with potential. FX's Partners taps into some of that, but doesn't really bring anything new to the table.
FX often takes an offbeat approach to promoting their new series, teasing the concept and tone with subtle videos and imagery before finally releasing a proper trailer to clue us in to what we might expect from the series. Such is the case for their upcoming new comedy, which stars Martin Lawrence and Kelsey Grammer, as you may have noticed by the above teaser.
CBS has bit another bullet and has cancelled Partners, the freshman sitcom following the work-oriented friendship of a straight dude and his gay partner. Although Partners averages 6.5 million viewers an episode (which is far better than some comedies fare on other networks), itís not exactly on par with other CBS fodder. The news comes just a few days after Partners hit a series low in the ratings.
While Sandy may be making her way up the East Coast at the moment, CBS is making sure the hurricane doesn't cause their East Coast viewers to miss their Monday night line-up. The network has decided to air reruns tonight, rather than the previously scheduled new episodes of their comedies and Hawaii Five-0.
CBS' new comedy Partners manages to get off to a good start as it introduces us to two lifelong male friends, one of whom is straight, while the other is gay. We soon learn that their friendship with one another may be as close, if not closer, than the relationships they have with their significant others. For years, I've been waiting for a CBS comedy series that would fit right next to How I Met Your Mother. At the risk of speaking too soon, I think Partners just might be it.
CBS has already giving us a few peeks at their upcoming new series, in the form of photos trailers and in the case of the upcoming modern-day Sherlock Holmes series Elementary, a screening of the pilot episode. And now the Eye has released the key art for their four new series, which give us a look at the casts of each of the. Check them out ahead and see how CBS is marketing Vegas, Elementary, Made in Jersey and Partners.
While things didn't work out for The Playboy Club at NBC, David Krumholtz will return to primetime this fall, this time to CBS to co-star in the upcoming new comedy Partners. Joining Ugly Betty's Michael Urie, the former Numb3rs star will play an architect whose love-life may interfere with his friendship with Urie's character.
CBS didn't waste any time renewing a number of series back in March, but we had to wait until now to know what new pilots made the cut for the 2012-2013 season, and which shows might be cut. Among the projects given the greenlight for series orders is the modern-day take on Sherlock Holmes called Elementary, and the Michael Urie/David Krumholtz-starring comedy Partners.
It was looking like NBCís The Playboy Club was going to put David Krumholtz back on television as a series regular, and it did up until the show was cancelled. Perhaps heíll have better luck with CBS and with a comedy. The Numb3rs star has been cast in a comedy pilot at the network.
The CBS pilot for Will & Grace creators Max Mutchick and David Kohanís new project has cast one of the two male leads. Michael Urie, best known for Ugly Betty will be one of the two partners named by the title of the project Ė the other has yet to be cast
