We Are Men (2013 Fall Premieres)

We Are Men is a funny, clever, independent situation sitcom airing on CBS’s Monday night line up after How I Met Your Mother. Now, it’s not the best new comedy breakout show of the fall, but it is a decent show to watch in between HIMYM and Sleepy Hollow The show begins with the repercussions of lead Carter Thomas (Chris Smith) being left at the alter on his wedding day. His bride played by Fiona Gubelmann (From Wilfred) runs off with an ex-boyfriend and leaves her fiance to live in “temporary housing.” A place meant for people who don’t usually have “enough money to buy their own couch.”
