TBS Does Okay with Men at Work

TBS announced that its new comedy series, Men at Work, scored 2,649,000 viewers; 1,630,000 adults 18-49; and 851,000 adults 18-34 in its debut last week and that the second episode did even better.  According to cable fast national data, the installment that aired directly after the first averaged 2,290,000 viewers in Live + Same Day delivery, with 778,000 adults 18-34 and 1,433,000 adults 18-49

The premiere of Men at Work also drew 14% more adults 18-34 and 7% more adults 18-49 than the prior four weeks of The Big Bang Theory in the Thursday 10 p.m. (ET/PT) time slot. And it garnered more men 18-34 (395,000) than any previous TBS original sitcom premiere.

Created by Breckin Meyer (Road Trip, TNT’s Franklin & Bash), Men at Work centers on four buddies who work together at a magazine.  

Danny Masterson, the curly--haired guy from That '70s Show plays the recently dumped Milo, whose friends are determined to help him get back in the dating game. James Lesure (Las Vegas) is Gibbs, a photographer and successful ladies man. Michael Cassidy (The O.C) plays Tyler, a features writer who brings a dose of style and sophistication to the group. And Adam Busch (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is Neal, a somewhat nerdy ad salesman and the only one in the group with a steady girlfriend (Meredith Hagner – Royal Pains).

Men at Work airs each Thursday at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).
