Golden Boy: Cancel or Renew for Season Two?

Golden Boy cancel or renew?CBS’ Golden Boy was originally supposed to run on Friday nights but its first few episodes did well enough for CBS to leave the series on Tuesdays. Has it been a success? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

Golden Boy follows the story of Walter William Clark Jr. (Theo James), a young and ambitious New York cop who quickly rises through the ranks to become the youngest Police Commissioner in the Big Apple’s history. The cast also includes Chi McBride, Kevin Alejandro, Bonnie Somerville, Holt McCallany, and Stella Maeve.

The police drama debuted to a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.56 million viewers. While the total viewership was healthy, CBS really needs their new shows to attract younger viewers. Still, a 1.8 rating was better than what Vegas had been raking in.

Golden Boy’s numbers fell in the next two weeks and it looked like the show was doomed to be cancelled. But then, the demo started to perk up and rose to a 1.7 rating. Perhaps there was hope after all?

Unfortunately, that hope was short lived and Golden Boy’s ratings quickly fell again. Last night’s episode hit new lows and attracted just a 1.2 demo rating with 6.99 million viewers.

Based on the ratings, it looks almost certain that Golden Boy won’t be back for another season and we won’t get to see the rest of Clark’s journey to greatness.

But, what do you think? Are you hoping that CBS still renews Golden Boy or should the timeslot be filled by something else? Is it worth watching?

This is a good show about a regular guy who grew up with many family problems, but he is trying to help people in his job as a police officer. He wants everyone to get a second chance, if they want to work for it. His partner really cares about him like a son he never had. Clark really appreciates being a part of something special the police department where he can make a difference in someone life besides his sister. It’s not only a cop show, it’s a family show like Blue Bloods but different. I hope they renew it, because I believe it will make it once people get the jest of the theme of the story. Not him becoming the youngest police commisissioner, but what he is doing as a public servant along the way and the lessons he learned.

I hope CBS keeps Golden Boy – it’s an excellent drama with talented actors. It’s an interesting plot line that I look forward to week after week. If they cancel this show, the network is making a big mistake.

Golden Boy is the best show on tv. I was really looking forward to watching this show in the years to come. Networks are silly. They never give a show a chance. I hope USA Network or TNT pick it up. Their shows are really good and they give the shows a chance to catch on. We should all e-mail CBS and let them know we don’t want Golden Boy to go. Or e-mail USA Network or TNT and ask them to pick it up.
