CBS first look: ‘Partners’


The lone new comedy on CBS’ fall schedule, “Partners” explores the relationship quadrangle between two lifelong friends — one straight (David Krumholtz of “Numbers”), the other gay (Michael Urie of “Ugly Betty”) — and their significant others, Sophia Bush and Brandon Routh. It comes from exec producers David Kohan and Max Mutchnick of “Will and Grace.”

At first glance, “Partners” appears to play broad enough to appeal to mainstream audiences without wallowing in crudity the way, say, “2 Broke Girls” does.
