"Partners" review by Suzanne
Mondays 8:30/7:30c on CBS

I love the actors on this show, so I was really hoping to like it. Sadly, it's a very bad show and not funny.  David Krumholtz, who was so brilliant in "Numb3rs" and Michael Urie, who was fantastic in "Ugly Betty", star as two life-long best friends, Joe and Louis. Louis is gay, and Joe is not. The creators of the show, Kohan and Mutchnick, based the sitcom on their own friendship. That's nice, but they should have made it funny while they were at it. More jokes, please, and less awkwardness and silliness. While viewing the pilot, I think I laughed once, at the "heart-on" joke, and that was it.

Joe is engaged to his girlfriend (Sophia Bush), but he's not really sure he's ready for that commitment.  Louis has a live-in boyfriend, Wyatt, played by the gorgeous Brandon Routh (who starred in the last Superman movie). Wyatt is kind of dumb.  I don't know why Routh went from starring in a movie to doing this bad sitcom. He's not the best actor in the world, but he has really improved since his days on "One Life to Live". He was terrible on there, although very charismatic and gorgeous.

The running joke of the show is that even though Joe is not gay, he and Louis are kind of a couple. Gee, that's never been done before. No, really, it was done much better on "Will & Grace". That's no coincidence because Kohan and Mutchnick created that show, too. I don't know if they had better writers, or what, but that show was very funny, unlike this one. Try again, boys!
