Partners

(CBS/sitcom)

8:00 p.m. (ET) Monday

Creators: David Kohan, Max Mutchnick

Architect firm partners Joe and Louis have been best friends and deeply entwined in each others’ lives since grade school. But things change for high-spirited Louis when the uptight Joe becomes engaged to businesswoman Ali. Also affected is Louis’ boyfriend, male nurse Wyatt. As two couples with three relationships, the foursome must figure out how to get along without driving each other crazy.

Sex-themed dialogue and innuendo is a significant factor on the show.  The flamboyantly gay Louis frequently discussed women’s breasts and Joe’s sex life and buries his face in another woman’s breasts. Innuendo has included Joe making remarks about “driving a stick shift,” and Wyatt talking about his clothing “having a heart on.” In another episode, Joe learned that Ali had a sexual relationship with Derek Jeter before they met.  Language used included “ass,” “bitch,” “damn,” balls,” and “hell.” Violence is not a problem for this program.

Partners is not recommended for viewers under age 14.
