The "Very Funny" cable network burned off the whopping nine-episode season of its sly charmer about Chicago sportswriter PJ (Jordana Spiro) and her pals on Sundays opposite such sky-high-profile cable competition as Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Mad Men — whose costar Joel Murray, aka rehabbed alky Freddy Rumsen, guested on Boys as the owner who sold the gang's hangout, Crowley's, to Brando (Reid Scott) in the season finale. That episode, "My Men," could serve as a series finale, with PJ turning down a job offer in Boston, Kenny (Michael Bunin) leaving for London with Steph (Kellee Stewart) and Mike (the hilarious Jamie Kaler) marrying his new girlfriend (Rachael Harris).
TBS hasn't picked up another season of My Boys yet, and it's not a good sign that they allowed the finale to get blitzed by the kickoff of Sunday Night Football and the MTV VMAs. Meanwhile, the net ordered 90 — that's not a typo — episodes of a vastly inferior sitcom starring NFL vet Terry Crews, Are We There Yet? That puts the BS in TBS!
Do you think My Boys deserves better treatment by TBS?
