CBS Cancels Sophomore Sitcom 'The Millers' Starring Will Arnett

Bad news for fans of Will Arnett and The Millers: Entertainment Weekly reports that the network has canceled the comedy five episodes into its second season following poor ratings at its Monday night time slot with 2 Broke Girls as its lead-in. The Millers debuted in October 2013 and kicked off its second season late last month. Tonight's episode will air at its usual 8:30pm time slot, but it's unknown yet whether any of the rest of The Millers' second season will air on television. The Millers joins NBC's A to Z and Bad Judge and ABC's Selfie as the major network sitcoms to get the [...]

CBS Is Winning In the Thursday Comedy Ratings

CBS is dominating the Thursday night comedy ratings, with Robin William's freshman sitcom The Crazy Ones once again doing very well, pulling in 11.8 million viewers and easily beating the premier of Sean Hayes new NBC sitcom, Sean Saves the World, which only managed 4.9 million viewers. The Big Bang Theory is still doing quite well for CBS, getting 17.8 million viewers, while Will Arnett's new CBS show The Millers got 13.2 million. Over on NBC, the second episode of The Michael J. Fox Show garnered 5.9 million viewers, while Parks and Recreation and Welcome to the Family brought in 3.5 million and 3.3 million viewers, respectively.

CBS Unveils Its Fall Schedule, Now Has a Two-Hour Comedy Block on Thursdays

CBS became the last of the Big Four TV networks to announce its Fall 2013 lineup this morning. The biggest development comedy-wise is that they're expanding their Thursday night comedy block to two hour now, giving NBC a run for its money by competing head-on with the Peacock Network's long-running but anemic comedy night. Adding more comedies makes sense with big hits How I Met Your Mother and Two and a Half Men on the way out soon, and

CBS has four new shows with big stars on the schedule this time around: The Crazy Ones (with Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar), Mom (with Anna Faris), The Millers [...]

CBS Renews 'Two and a Half Men', 'The Millers', 'Mom', '2 Broke Girls', and 'Mike & Molly'

CBS today announced the early renewal of 18 shows, including five comedies, for the 2014-2015 season. The five renewed comedies are veteran series Two and a Half Men, 2 Broke Girls, and Mike & Molly and new shows The Millers, starring Will Arnett, and Mom, starring Anna Faris. The Big Bang Theory received a massive three-season renewal from the network yesterday, so producer Chuck Lorre still has four sitcoms on the network.

This leaves the Robin Williams-Sarah Michelle Gellar series The Crazy Ones and the upcoming midseason sitcoms Friends with Better Lives and Bad Teacher as the only comedies CBS has yet to renew. How I Met Your Mother [...]

Will Arnett Showed Off HIs Love For Hockey, E-Cigarettes on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Will Arnett visited Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to plug his new sitcom The Millers and reveled in his Canadian-ness with a story about flying with Wayne Gretzky on a recent trip up north. He's also probably the first person to smoke an e-cigarette on late night television, but he makes it work. Below, he'll make you never want to go to a baseball game with Jason Bateman.

CBS Orders Full Seasons of 'The Millers', 'The Crazy Ones' and 'Mom'

CBS sure knows how to make sitcoms that a lot of people watch, and they're sticking with what works. This afternoon, CBS announced nine more episodes for freshman sitcoms The Crazy Ones, The Millers, and Mom, bringing each to 22 episodes. The Millers has been doing very well in this ratings so far, and this week was the second most-watched comedy on network TV after long-running megahit The Big Bang Theory.
