CBS has officially cancelled freshman comedy Me, Myself & I, it was confirmed today.
Me, Myself & I was the first new show this season to be pulled from the schedule, so its cancellation was more a matter of when than if. The series posted alright numbers during its brief tenure on CBS, but with owned, on-brand Man with a Plan lurking after being pushed off the fall schedule, it would’ve had to really put up eye-opening numbers in order to keep its spot. Its job was made that much more difficult since it was stuck at the end of a lineup of broader multi-cams instead of joining CBS’s single cameras on Thursdays, so it simply wasn’t put in front of the CBS audience that might’ve appreciated its charms.
From Dan Kopelman (Rules of Engagement), Me, Myself & I looked at the life of inventor Alex Riley through three pivotal periods of his development – as a 14-year-old (Jack Dylan Glazer) who moves to Los Angeles to live with his new stepfather in 1991; as a 40-year-old (Bobby Moynihan) reeling from the dissolution of his marriage and the struggles of being a single parent; and as a freshly retired 65-year-old (John Larroquette) who reunites with a lost love in 2042.
In addition to Glazer, Moynihan, and Larroquette, Me, Myself & I starred Brian Unger (The Daily Show), Jaleel White (Family Matters), Kelen Coleman (The McCarthys), and Sharon Lawrence (Queen Sugar).
The last episode of Me, Myself & I that CBS aired was in late October 2017, with the fate of the remaining episodes still to be determined.
