Michael Urie, David Krumholtz
CBS has canceled freshman comedy Partners and will take it off the air effective immediately, Deadline reports.
When you find hot and heavy pictures of your fiancée with Derek Jeter, what do you do?
The logical answer might be to confront said fiancée. But if you're Partners' Joe (David Krumholtz), you tell your best friend Louis (Michael Urie) — as you've always done.
"That's just his...
And so the fall TV season officially begins tonight — with a bit of a whimper in the new (though it already feels a bit musty) CBS sitcom Partners (8:30/7:30c). Remember how groundbreaking Will & Grace was back in the day? Also how hilarious it was?
"I think we just need to accept the fact that there are four people at this table, but three couples."
So says Ali (Sophia Bush), summing up Partners' premise in the pilot.

Question: I've seen a lot of debate in the last week since Breaking Bad aired its midpoint finale of this terrific split final season. Much of it focusing on whether Walter White would be obtuse enough to leave Gale's signed copy of Leaves of Grass lying around for anyone ...
Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a ... baby boy!
Superman himself, Brandon Routh, and his wife, Courtney Ford, are celebrating a new addition to their family. They welcomed a boy, Leo James, on Friday, People reports.

Brandon Routh, Chuck
Have Chuck and Sarah been naughty this year? On Friday's Chuck (8/7c, NBC), it looks like Santa is bringing them something far worse than a lump of coal: their old nemesis Daniel Shaw!
"We wanted to do a Christmas story, and Christmas is such a holiday that's haunted, like in the Charles Dickens tradition," Chuck co-creator Chris Fedak tells reporters during a December set visit. "We thought, 'Let's bring a monster from our past.' At the end of Season 3, Brandon [Routh] was such a good 'muahaha' bad guy. I was like, I've got to bring back the 'muahaha.'"
Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski
Before we eat that last footlong and pour a 40-ounce soft drink out on the curb, there are 13 more episodes of Chuck left in its fifth and final season, kicking off Friday (8/7c on NBC).
Much has happened to our titular Nerd Herder-turned-spy and his friends, family and fellow agents in the past four seasons. And for the most part, we're fairly satisfied. We've seen Chuck (Zachary Levi) come into his own as a spy and as a man by finally marrying Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski). We've met his butt-kicking parents (Linda Hamilton, Scott Bakula), saw Ellie and Awesome (Sarah Lancaster, Ryan McPartlin) have a baby and even witnessed Morgan (Josh Gomez) find romance.
