"Pilot" -- CBS√¢¬?¬?s new single camera comedy 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, second from right), was just ditched at the altar and is eager to re-enter the dating scene; Frank Russo (Tony Shalhoub, far right) is a four-time divorce who still fancies himself a ladies man; Gil Bartis (Kal Penn, second from left), who was caught having the world√¢¬?¬?s worst affair; and Stuart Strickland (Jerry O√¢¬?¬?Connell) is hiding his assets until his second divorce is settled. WE ARE MEN will premiere this Fall, Mondays (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Photo: Sonja Flemming/CBS √?¬©2013 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
Review: 'We Are Men' is unbelievably bad

There's good news for "Mike & Molly" fans tonight on CBS.

No, that show isn't on the schedule. It's in production as a midseason replacement, and a full season - 22 episodes - will be coming our way.

Odds are we'll start seeing those episodes sooner rather than later, because the new sitcom We Are Men (7:30 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2) can't possibly be around for long. It's so incredibly terrible it's a sure bet to be quickly canceled.

Well, as sure a bet as anything is on TV.

It's about four men (three divorced; one left at the altar) who reside at a Hollywood apartment building for singles - and pretty much nothing funny happens. Tony Shalhoub, Jerry O'Connell, Kal Penn and Chris Smith star in this alleged comedy that arrives with a thud and shows no signs of becoming anything worth watching.

If you think that grown men acting like sex-obsessed adolescents is funny, you might enjoy this. But probably not, because it's just so darn predictable and dull.
