Once upon a time the Monday night sitcom lineup on CBS and Thursday night Sitcom lineup on NBC were anchors in the television lineup. Not anymore as this season’s funny fare are tanking for both networks.

Things are so bad for CBS on Mondays that “Mike and Molly” is being rushed back for the coveted 9pm spot after “Two Broke Girls” couldn’t handle it there and is being pushed back. “”How I Met Your Mother” , the nights most successful show is in it’s last season.

On Thursdays, NBC sought to replace shows like The Office that had small but dedicated fan bases with shows that would have broader appeal. Yet Welcome to the Family has already been axed. Hayes’ Sean Saves the World is in danger, too, reaching just 3.4 million people last week. NBC ordered a full season of episodes of The Michael J. Fox Show, but the 3.6 million viewers it reached last week were fewer than Univision’s competing Telenovela, Tempestad.
