Today CBS unveiled its midseason comedy lineup, and absent from the schedule is Happy Together. The lack of new episodes means the freshman comedy will end its run after its initial 13-episode order.

While the network is officially leaving the show's future up in the air for now, the lack of a back order cannot be viewed as a good sign. Add that to the fact that the series has been a mediocre ratings performer thus far, and the prospect of a second season appears very unlikely.

Happy Together follows Jake and Claire, a thirty-something couple who have grown tired of their uneventful lives. When Jake's famous pop star accounting client shows up at their door to escape the paparazzi, it turns their lives upside down. With a cool, young celebrity now staying with them, Jake and Claire start to reconnect with their old selves - back when things were more exciting and less routine - with varying results.

Moving forward into the new year, Man With a Plan will return for its third season on February 4, taking over Happy Together's time slot at 8:30pm.
