The peacock network has announced that low-rated sitcom Best Friends Forever will return on Friday, June 1st at 8pm. NBC is burning off the remaining two episodes on that night.
The network had previously been airing Best Friends Forever on Wednesday nights, paired with hidden-camera series Betty White’s Off Their Rockers. The debut drew just a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.94 million total viewers. Sadly, the ratings never got any better than that. The demo in week two dropped 25% and week three fell another 11%. Week four didn’t drop or rise.
NBC pulled Forever after four weeks on the air and replaced it with additional installments of Rockers. That move ended up being a smart one for NBC. Week-to-week, the network was up by 75% in the demo and 85% in total viewers.
While NBC hasn’t officially cancelled Best Friends Forever, there’s no chance that the network will be renewing the show for a second season.
