Fall TV: Partners, Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue cancelled
Citytv will pre-release Happy Endings on Monday nights at 8:30 p.m., with Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue both staying on through their initial 13-episode orders.
CBS cancelling its freshman comedy Partners (pictured) has left Citytv with a hole to be filled by the pre-release of Happy Endings on Monday nights at 8:30 p.m. starting tonight.
The network axed the ratings-challenged sitcom from Will & Grace writers David Kohan and Max Mutchnick that starred David Krumholtz, Michael Urie, Sophia Bush and Brandon Routh on Friday.
Partners filled a Monday night slot that launched hit CBS comedies like The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Mike & Molly and 2 Broke Girls.
Citytv now has much of that CBS Monday night comedy block after acquiring Mike & Molly from Warner Bros. Domestic Television.
CTV put the Chuck Lorre comedy back on the market after it clashed with popular reality TV series on its schedule like The Voice and Dancing With the Stars.
Citytv will replace Happy Endings on Sunday nights at 8:30 p.m. with a repeat episode of 30 Rock.
ABC also put two of its new dramas on the chopping block on Friday, saying Last Resort (airs on Global Wednesday night at 8 p.m.) and 666 Park Avenue (airs in Canada on Sunday night on Citytv at 10 p.m.) will not continue beyond their initial 13-episode orders.
