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?

I don’t have cable. I watched this series on Netflix. I didn’t like the beginning. My husband is 9 yrs younger than me and I thought it made older, independent women look slutty. I thought it made young men look equally slutty. Like neither had values. I only watched a few minutes of each episode until Christmas when they admit they love each other. After that, I enjoyed it a lot. I would love to see how they raise a child together. It hasn’t worked so well with us. I hope they can keep the love alive between them. Values definitely count for me.

Look people i wat hed the whole first season im 11 years old that proves that even kids love this show yes im angry that you are not making another season because you left the viewers hanging with no second season it’s not just me who’s mad all my friends are mad to you cant just make one season and cancel the show i mean like that’s creating computers and then saying people can’t use them i mean like i am very angry and if you don’t make another season i don’t know what i will watch with my friend’s ! I am very angry and unless you people make a second season i will never ever watch your company’s TV series again, same with my friend’s. That will sure drop you viewers by a lot.
