Growing Up Fisher: Season One Ratings

Growing Up Fisher TV show: cancel or renew?Jenna Elfman’s last NBC sitcom, 1600 Penn, only lasted one short season because of low ratings. Will Growing Up Fisher be cancelled as well or will it be renewed for a second season instead? Stay tuned.

Growing Up Fisher follows an unorthodox family that becomes closer after the parents divorce. The cast includes Elfman, J. K. Simmons, Eli Baker, Ava Deluca-Verley, and Lance Lim. Jason Bateman is the show’s narrator.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

    I love this show – about time we put creative humor on instead of Reality TV trash. This is what real entertainment should be. Humor and values….who would have thought?

    This is better than wonder years hoped to ever be and every other family show on air – Do Not Cancel this show. It is the one reason I still have cable.

    This is a great show! It always takes a few episodes for a show to hit it’s stride but, this one seems to have a second season feel to it!!

    So far I love this sho and About a Boy. My dilemma is it comes on same night as Pretty Little Liars and Twisted. I have to get online and look later at episodes missed.

    This is an Olympic-sized train wreck for Fisher. Like Animal Practice and the Marriage Ref, this’ll be the victim of cancellation. The Olympics and their traditional ceremonies are more important than premiering sitcoms

      How is showing a strong, independent, and competent person with a disability “making fun” of being blind? As a member of the disabled community I adore the show, and the character. Having a sense of humor about the curves life throws at you is the best way to get through such a difficult situation.
      No one is pointing and laughing at this man, I believe the word “superhero” has been thrown around.

      I feel it show how strong, loving and smart he is. I don’t think the show makes fun of him.

    We like it as well and hope it lasts more that just a few episodes….
    So give it a fair chance NBC!
    You keep all kinds of “junk” on your channels but the family type sitcoms don’t have a snowballs chance in h….

    Everything meshes in this show. Absolutely love each and every character. Most of the time it is one or two characters that carry the load. In the case of this show they all figure in. The fact it is based on a true story makes it that much more enjoyable. JK Simmons role was written for him absolutely. Hopefully this show is renewed, an excellent production.
