CBS Cancels The Millers

The Millers had a decent first season run on CBS in 2013 and 2014, drawing in enough viewers to earn a second season renewal order while other newbie comedies on the network weren’t so lucky including The Crazy Ones and Friends with Better Lives. But just a few episodes into season two, CBS has decided they’ve had enough and will be pulling the sitcom off the schedule, although exactly when it’ll be yanked hasn’t been revealed).

Airing on Mondays, The Millers starring Will Arnett, Beau Bridges, and Margo Martindale had the timeslot between 2 Broke Girls and Scorpion. Last year it aired in the much cushier timeslot after The Big Bang Theory, which undoubtedly helped its ratings.

This season found Sean Hayes (Will and Grace) added to the cast as a regular. The addition of Hayes didn’t increase the show’s viewership, and it appears The Millers is the latest in a string of comedy cancellations that includes Bad Judge, A to Z, and Manhattan Love Story.
