TBS Renews Men At Work for Season 2

Dude, HIGH FIVE. TBS today renewed its new comedy Men At Work for a second season, ordering 10 more episodes of the new series with an eye on sometime in 2013 for a Season 2 premiere date. The show has done okay in the ratings, averaging 2.7 million viewers when DVR numbers are included. TBS says that's good enough to be one of the top five new basic-cable series in the 18-49 demographic, but when your parameters are that specific, I'm not sure it's something to toot.

The show was created by Breckin Meyer (Franklin & Bash) and follows four bro-dudes who work at a bro-dude magazine a la Maxim. It stars Danny Masterson (That '70s Show) as a guy who's recently back on the dating scene. I did not care for the pilot episode.

TBS has made huge strides in comedy, mixing and matching reruns with original programming, and the affordable multi-camera Men At Work fits nicely into that strategy. The network will debut new comedy Sullivan & Son in July, recently paid lots of money for future off-network syndication rights to 2 Broke Girls, and is reaping the rewards of its high-priced, "risky-then, goldmine now" purchase of The Big Bang Theory repeats.


Men At Work airs Thursdays nights at 10pm on TBS.

I love the characters They are very lovable,attractive (to both sexes) BUT the story premise of the show needs some considerable re-examination or some SERIOUS reconstruction of the original premise of the show.

If anyone has any suggestions for future episodes, please let me know what you would like to see and I will write a spec. script specifying your premise. send your ideas to fernandopudhomme@yahoo.com (t.v. sitcom freelance writer)

I remember your first post about this show and commenting about watching it if it were free on itunes. Lo and behold the first two episodes were. Man... I couldn't even gather enough will power to watch it then. Alas, I am not surprised it was renewed. I guess in a TV world where we are bombarded with stupid trash reality, bad comedy writing might be a breath of fresh air?

I'm kind of surprised it got renewed, I'm also surprised it made it past 2 episodes. I wouldn't call it bad, it's had a couple funny moments in each episode.. but it's far from great. good for it though.

I watched part of one episode. He is texting a girl and accidentally calls her a c*nt. It was funny, but I haven't made it a point to watch another episode.

I don't think it terrible. I found it moderately amusing to watch the few times I left the station on after TBBT ended. Haven't seen much originality in it but the characters are pretty likable.

I can't believe Men at Work gets 10 episodes ordered while the black sitcoms get larger numbers.
