"The Odd Couple" premiered February 2015 on CBS. The sitcom is adapted from the 1960's play of the same name, which was also adapted into a film and two other sitcoms. "The Odd Couple" centers on Felix (Thomas Lennon) and Oscar (Matthew Perry). Both actors are notable comedians. Perry is best known for his role as Chandler from "Friends" (also from CBS). Felix moves in with former college roommate Oscar after his wife of 20 years kicks him out of the house. Divorced Oscar is laid-back and messy while Felix is uptight with a taste for all things culture and tidy.

New season cut short

CBS recently announced that "The Odd Couple" will be cut to 13 episodes for the current third season, going against the option of additional episodes. The network choosing to premiere during the Fall season contemplated extending the season to match the 22 plus episode order that "Big Bang Theory" and four other sitcoms received, including Freshman hit "Kevin Can Wait." The shortened season will also be shorter than other Freshman sitcoms "Man with a Plan" and "The Great Indoors." The previous two seasons each contained 13 episodes and premiered at midseason.

"The Odd Couple" is currently ranked as the lowest in ratings of CBS comedies. Ratings will need a vast improvement to get the show a fourth season. The sitcom is currently ranked with a 1.0 in live and same day ratings with a 29% drop from last season. Though, the order cut doesn't mean it's canceled. No official word has been given to indicate either way, but things aren't looking good for the sitcom.

Season 3 revolves around the "couple"

The episode cut shouldn't deter fans from enjoying the current season of "The Odd Couple." It's set to focus around couples. Executive Producer Bob Daily teases that things will be rocky for couples, Felix and Emily (Lindsay Sloane), and Oscar and Charlotte (Teri Hatcher). Rocky may seem like an understatement seeing that Emily recently broken up with Felix after realizes she she misses the independence she had while in England.

The Executive Producer has shared no current word about if the fan favorite couple will reunite. No new information has been given about the remaining episodes.
