Amid reports that CBS has canceled its its freshman comedy "Partners," the network would only say on Friday that a "Two and a Half Men" repeat will air in the show's timeslot next week.
"Partners," which stars Michael Urie and David Krumholtz, and centered around the "bromance" between two co-workers, one gay and one straight, premiered Sept. 24 and occupied the Monday at 8:30 slot.
Its most recent episode scored a 1.8 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic -- down 14 percent from the previous week, and its poorest showing to date.
"Partners" was created by "Will & Grace" writers David Kohan and Max Mutchnick and was loosely based on their own lives.
CBS has not yet returned TheWrap's requests for comment.
