Bad Teacher: Season One Ratings

Bad Teacher TV show on CBS ratingsCBS has had mixed success with new sitcoms this season. The Crazy Ones looks like it could be cancelled because the ratings weren’t high enough. How will Bad Teacher perform? Will it be renewed for a second season or will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.

On Bad Teacher, a former trophy wife (Ari Graynor) masquerades as a teacher in order to find a new man to marry. The rest of the cast includes Kristin Davis, David Alan Grier, Sara Gilbert, Ryan Hansen, and Sara Rodier.

    Its not always the ratings that CBS should look at,give a show a chance,It was really freaking funny,even the crazy ones was funny,the sad thing is that people today want to see blood,and killing,or silly singing…We need more light hearted shows,so what if its not and hit with everyone,heck stat trek had bad ratings,and look what happened ??? its a great show..

      Agree with Mark – we need more charming, funny, less violent sitcoms. They seem silly to some, but they are a great escape from the stress and negativity of real life. Often they are very well-written, have a great cast & leave a smile on my face by the end of the episode (this was also the case for The Neighbors, an misunderstood gem). They may look brainless on the surface, but they are actually quite insightful and have nuances that actually reflect, amusingly, on real life.

    I stumbled across Bad Teacher earlier this summer. Love the show. It’s hilarious. I hope some network picks it up as I would most certainly continue to watch.

    I absolutely love this show. If it would just stop getting canceled people would be able to know when it’s on. I hope another network picks it up!
