We Are Menhas been canceled after two episodes, TVGuide.com has learned.

The testosterone-heavy comedy, which stars Chris Smith, Jerry O'Connell, Kal Penn and Tony Shalhoub, debuted to 6.4 million viewers and a 2.0, down 0.4 from last year's premiere of  the short-lived Partners and shedding more than a point from lead-in How I Met Your Mother. In its second week, it fell to 5.4 million viewers and a 1.8.
