CBS has crossed The Ex List off its schedule.
The series stared Elizabeth Reaser as a 30-something woman who’s told by a psychic that if she doesn’t wed within a year, she’ll never walk down the aisle. Oh, and to complicate things, and give you the raison d’etre of the series, the psychic also says that the guy she’s going to marry is someone she dated before.
The plot sounded like a romantic twist on classmates.com, where you can reconnect with high school flings and find out if true love lurks in your past. “The Ex List” only aired four times and then — poof — was gone, as were many viewers after the first three outings.
But while CBS has decided it doesn’t want any more dates with this “Ex,” that doesn’t mean the network isn’t committed to topics about dating and dealing with Ex’s. Whether you’re divorced or single, dealing with an ex is rarely a piece of cake and offers plenty of comedic fodder.
Still on CBS’ schedule is The New Advenures of Old Christine with Julia Louis Dreyfus as a divorced mom on Wednesdays, followed by the new series Gary Unmarried, staring Jay Mohr as a newly divorced painting contractor who strives to balance work, shared custody of his two children, a controlling ex-wife, and his foxy new girlfriend.
