UPDATED: CBS will be bringing back Monday comedy Man with a Plan starring Matt LeBlanc. The network had not been expected to bring back all of its Monday comedies as it is looking to improve its shaky ratings performance on the night. Still up in the air is the fate of Kevin Can Wait and Superior Donuts, with at least one probably not coming back. UPDATE: Superior Donuts has been canceled.
Man With a Plan has held steady, ranking as CBS’ second highest rated and most watched series behind Kevin Can Wait on Monday. Man with a Plan also is fully owned by CBS, it comes from CBS TV . Studios, vs. 50-50 ownership in Kevin Can Wait, which comes from Sony TV. And, with Kevin Can Wait’s ratings sliding throughout the season following the female lead recasting debacle, in the final stretch the two comedies’ ratings have been on par.
Man With A Plan stars LeBlanc as Adam, an an old-school guy confronting the modern challenges of parenting, marriage and family. Adam’s self-assured wife, Andi (Liza Snyder), has gone back to work, forcing him to deal with the startling discovery that his three school-age “little angels” are maniacs, all the while trying to run a contracting business with his troublemaker brother, Don (Kevin Nealon). Stacy Keach, Grace Kaufman, Matthew McCann, Hala Finley and Matt Cook also star.
LeBlanc executive produces with Jeff and Jackie Filgo, Michael Rotenberg, Troy Zien and Gregg Mettler.
