Accidentally on Purpose: Jenna Elfman Hoping for Season Two

Accidentally on PurposeJenna Elfman’s CBS sitcom, Accidentally on Purpose, completed its freshman season last week and she and the rest of the cast (Jon Foster, Lennon Parham, Grant Show, Nicolas Wright, Ashley Jensen, and Pooch Hall) are anxiously waiting to hear if the TV show will be renewed or cancelled.

The CBS series has been a joy for the veteran sitcom actress to do and Elfman recently told FOX News “The more people watch, the better our chances are at getting a second season, which I really hope we get, because I really enjoy doing the show.”

Unfortunately, the show’s prospects don’t look very good at this point. The ratings weren’t as high as the network wanted and even last week’s finale didn’t bring high ratings. It brought in a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demo and just 5.23 million viewers. Unfortunately, that’s a new ratings low for Accidentally on Purpose and CBS has other promising sitcoms waiting in the wings.

TV show supportIf Accidentally on Purpose is somehow lucky enough to escape cancellation, Elfman is looking forward to seeing how Billie and Zack handle parenthood together.

A mother of two, she told ET, “I think it is going to be hilarious to see this couple as parents. They are like two different generations. Parenting raises some amazing issues. My husband and I have been together 18 years. We hit new levels of conflict and dilemma and love. Everything that a relationship has magnifies when you bring a child into it.”

What do you think? Would you like to see how they handle parenthood or was the finale a good way to end Accidentally on Purpose?

    Accidentally On Purpose was one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time. I found it on Netflix and fell in love with it. Zach and Billie work so well together. Its so much better than The Big Bang Theory, Two and A Half Men, Mike & Molly, How I Met Your Mother (yuk! what a stupid show), 2 Broke Girls. BRING IT BACK, CBS! Buy it NBC, ABC, FOX.
