    Renew Man With A Plan! Whoops!


    • ChrisM

      It’s not going down without a fight. It’s a losing one, but still…


      • Monzo

        I guess CBS thinks The Unicorn would do better in this timeslot right now, maybe they are right. Still, I’m surprised MWAP is cancelled, so syndication doesn’t matter anymore. Remember when CBS renewed Rules Of Engagement year by year just to get enough episodes for syndication, these days seem to be gone.


        • Destiny

          I have little doubt its because the Covid-19 pandemic has reduced the scheduling room for networks. What we usually see is a fall schedule, then a mid season with a good number of show premieres, along with some excess shows later on. Because its highly unlikely we’ll see shows in the fall, there’s no need to keep some of the “B” shows around.


    • Destiny

      Wow I missed so much after being in hospital for a few days(Not Covid-19 lol). Really sorry to see your canceled.
