Looks like we have our first casualty. Me, Myself & I has been pulled from the schedule. Said to return at a later date.

Yep. Put a fork in it:

CBS Yanks "Me, Myself & I," Brings Back "Man With a Plan."

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

The sexual assault accusations against Jeremy Piven were a factor in its cancellation; it wasn't ratings alone.

Yeah, but that quick of a trigger pull.. it was in the crosshairs, already.

Yeah, they don't pull an entire show just for one person - even the star - unless it was already in trouble.

House of Cards may go on without Kevin Spacey
Criminal Minds continues on without Mandy Patinkin
8 Simple Rules went on without John Ritter
Valerie became The Hogan Family and went on without Valerie Harper.
Alice went through multiple casting changes due to disputes with Linda Lavin
The Dukes of Hazzard replaced Bo and luke with Vance and Coy for a season and still managed to come back until CBS finally killed it.

That's one reason ensemble shows survive as long as they do, such as Law and Order, NYPD Blue, ER and CSI. You can have cast members leave and someone else come on board and the show clicks along. When the focus is on one particular actor, it does become harder to move on without them, but - as noted above - it has happened.

Exactly: it was a combination of low ratings and Piven's situation.

Can we just go ahead and put Fox's "LA to Vegas" on the endangered list NOW? Ugh.

I can't believe FOX is even going to try that one. 'Ugh' is right!

Honestly I dont watch a lot of regular tv anymore. More interesting options on netflix, prime. hulu etc. I probably watch 4-5 shows regularly from the major networks.

What!?! You're crazy! "LA to Vegas" is a fun, silly show. More people should watch! Go to the LA to Vegas thread for some love for the show!

We hadn't seen anything but the promos when I wrote that (check the post date). Oddly enough, it surpassed my expectations, which admittedly weren't terribly high. I've seen every episode and will probably keep watching. Which is something I can't say about most of the newer sitcoms.

'Living Biblically' Basically Dead at CBS
By Lesley Goldberg, The Hollywood Reporter - Apr. 19, 2018

CBS is likely closing the book on Living Biblically.

The network has pulled the freshman comedy, executive produced by Johnny Galecki, after eight episodes. Repeats of The Big Bang Theory will take over the show's Monday time slot for the immediate future. The unaired episodes could return at a later date, likely in the summer and after May sweeps.

Created by Patrick Walsh and based on AJ Jacobs' book The Year of Living Biblically, the multicamera comedy starring Jay R. Ferguson struggled to cut through the clutter since launching in late February. The series bowed to 5 million total viewers, with its April 16 installment netting a series low of 3.5 million.

Living Biblically becomes CBS' latest freshman comedy to get the ax. The network picked up four rookie comedies this season and has effectively canceled three of them — Living Biblically; Me, Myself and I; and 9JKL. Only Big Bang Theory prequel Young Sheldon will return for a second season.
