Shows That Won't Be Back This Fall
Guys With Kids
“Guys With Kids” (NBC)
Remember how bad the numbers were for “Animal Practice”? Well, they’re even worse for this dudes-who-are-dads sitcom. NBC execs will be throwing a red-faced tantrum when they see that this week’s episode
pulled a mere 4.8 million viewers, solidifying the Peacock Network at the back of the pack in the Wednesday-at-8 hour. (Unless you count The CW, which we don’t.) But at least “Guys With Kids” is still neck-and-neck with “The Mob Doctor” in the race for This Fall’s Most Literal Show Title.
Prognosis: Stinky as a dirty diaper. NBC wants to stay in business with producer Jimmy Fallon, so they may give this a few courtesy weeks, but don’t expect to see these “Kids” again after Christmas.
