CBS has canceled PARTNERS, and pulled it from the Monday night schedule.  The show, created by the Will & Grace team of Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, never got a grip on much viewership, and was by far the lowest-rated show in the network’s crucial Monday line-up of sitcoms, so this isn’t much of a surprise–although on other networks and other nights, its 1.8 rating last week would have earned it an easy full-season pick-up.

The network will air a 2 1/2 Men rerun next Monday, and is expected to fill the gap more permanently with a mix of RULES OF ENGAGEMENT and the midseason comedy FRIEND ME, although nothing’s been officially announced at this point.
