About We Are Men

WE ARE MEN is about four single guys living in a short-term apartment complex who unexpectedly find camaraderie over their many missteps in love.


Carter (Chris Smith), the youngest and most recent addition to the group, moved in after being ditched at the altar mid-ceremony, and is now eager to re-enter the dating scene and get on with his life with some guidance from his “band of brothers”: Frank Russo, a middle-aged clothing manufacturer and four-time divorcée who still fancies himself a ladies man (Golden Globe and multiple Emmy Award winner Tony Shalhoub); Gil Bartis, a small business owner who was caught having the world's worst affair (Kal Penn); and Stuart Weber, a Speedo-wearing OB/GYN who's hiding his assets until his second divorce is settled (Jerry O'Connell); along with Abby, Frank's charming and attractive daughter, who stands as the one positive remnant from his failed relationships (Rebecca Breeds).


Armed with a hot tub, poolside barbeque and plenty of questionable advice, these losers in the marriage department take Carter under their wing to impart their own brand of wisdom about the opposite sex.

    Suspect this is a hint that it’s tracking badly.

  • Bob

    I watched the CBS Fall Preview last week and just watching these guys made my decision not to watch the show and I love Kal Penn and STILL don’t want to watch it. Absolutely juvenile. I don’t think it will be as bad as The Goldberg’s but pretty close.

  • Samunto

    I think so too. Based on the clips alone this could be the cancellation Bear’s first meal of the season.

    I like the cast but i’m willing to sit this one until after week 2s ratings.

    I loved The Goldbergs. Has been reviewed decently too.

  • Dan S

    While I like the cast of WAM I think I’ll pass. The reviews are awful & will likely be replaced quickly by Mike & Molly.

  • TV Viewer

    Probably the only thing that can save We Are Men, (apart from the lead actors including Tony Shalhoub), is it’s time slot, which did not do a thing for Partners in 2012. People would watch How I Met Your Mother, change the channel, and go back to CBS for Two Broke Girls.

    CBS is trying to attract viewers for the program, but, this show looks like it is going fly about as well as a concrete ballon.

    As in the photograph; We Are Men looks like it’s in hot water and about to go down the drain.

    Mike and Molly will practically set a record on how fast it will replace We Are Men and return to CBS Monday night schedule.

    The trailer I saw for this did manage to make me laugh, but I don’t have high hopes for it. Even CBS hasn’t seemed to be promoting it much, which is kinda stupid since it’s smack-dab in the middle of their Monday comedy line-up. A bomb there could hurt 2 Broke Girls, a show they’ve placed way too much faith in.

    And I also think The Goldbergs is good. Watched the pilot last week online and it was both heartwarming and funny. I definitely liked it more than Trophy Wife or Back in the Game, even though those two aren’t bad, either. It’d probably fit better with The Middle than on Tuesdays, but at least there hopefully it’ll get some tune-in after SHIELD.

  • Survivor Fan

    I just watched it and actually liked it.

  • Nothing But Cancellation

    It was a torture to watch it.

    Welcome to The Family is a lot better, this is officially the worst new tv show (since only critics have seen Dads already).

  • Igwell

    All I could take was four minutes.

    Dave Foley deserves better than to be cast as the dad of the lead dickhead.
