What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the Comedy Central cable channel, Detroiters stars real life best friends Sam Richardson and Tim Robinson, who created the scripted comedy with Joe Kelly and Zach Kanin. The foursome executive produces the series with Lorne Michaels, Jason Sudeikis, and Andrew Singer. Season one guest stars include Sudeikis, Obba Babatunde, Michael Che, Comedian CP, Steve Higgins, Richard Karn, Rick Mahorn, Keegan-Michael Key, Kevin Nash, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Cecily Strong, Trick Trick, George Wallace and Malcolm-Jamal Warner.
The Detroiters TV show revolves around Sam Duvet (Sam Richardson) and Tim Cramblin (Tim Robinson). They are two best friends and small-time ad men who are from different parts of Detroit. Whatever they do, Sam and Tim do it together. And, no matter what happens, Tim and Sam’s love for each other and Motor City never wavers.
Season One Ratings
Comedy Central doesn’t run a lot of traditional scripted series, so while its Detroiters TV show is low-rated, it is hard to assess whether it will be cancelled or renewed just going by its Nielsen TV ratings. For the sake of context, Workaholics was renewed for seasons six and seven, back in July of 2015, but its season five ratings averages were a 0.56 in the 18-49 demo and around 870,000 viewers. Although Workaholics was not cancelled, after the lower-rated sixth season, the creators later announced season seven would be the final installment. The seventh season went on to draw a 0.29 and 480,000, respectively.
I was a little surprised when the much lower rated Detroiters was renewed for a second season on March 20th. Of course, it all comes down to money. It can’t be an expensive show to produce, so as long as it is earning its keep, and Comedy Central still wants to build on its scripted portfolio, I guess the renewal makes sense, even though I am starving. Don’t forget though, even renewals can be cancelled, so subscribe for free updates on any Detroiters cancellation and renewal news.
