On May 6, 2020, CBS announced that Man with a Plan had been cancelled after four seasons. While ratings for the fourth season were satisfactory, the network was reportedly looking to lower costs following the merger of CBS and Viacom that had taken place that same season. The series was expensive to produce for the network, which was a major factor in its decision to cancel the series. Man with a Plan received negative reviews from critics. On the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the series has an approval rating of 21%, based on 29 reviews, with an average rating of 3.29/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Man with a Plan's flawed, unimaginative writing fails to properly showcase the charm of its unfortunately underperforming lead." Just started watching this new "CBS" sitcom called "Man with a Plan" and so far it's funny and it explores the ins and outs of married life with kids as the woman and man each take on different roles.

Starring one of my favorite actors Matt LeBlanc(from "Friends" and "Episodes" fame)as Adam Burns a man's who's decided to stay at home and raise his kids even though he's got his own contractor supply business on the side, and it's the Mrs. Burns(Liza Snyder)who has went back to work in the medical field. And yes as expected this brings some growing pains in the form of dealing with the kids and then both Adam and Andi have their own marriage problems. It's a typical sitcom with good one liners and funny stories as it mixes today's culture with family life, so take my advice and give "Man with a Plan" a watch. Man with a Plan coming to Netflix comes as Netflix has a relatively weak lineup in the TV department for October 2020. So far, the big Netflix Original series for the month are The Haunting of Bly Manor and Emily in Paris but beyond that, it’s smaller titles with limited appeal. (Source: www.whats-on-netflix.com)
