The guys won’t have to worry about watching their kids in season two. The peacock network has pulled the plug on Guys with Kids after one season.
Co-created by Jimmy Fallon, Guys with Kids follows a trio of male friends and their partners as they all try to figure out parenthood in a modern world. They’re played by Anthony Anderson, Jesse Bradford, Zach Cregger, Tempestt Bledsoe, Erinn Hayes, and Jamie-Lynn Sigler.
The sitcom premiered last September to a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.25 million viewers. That was a pretty good start, especially for NBC.
Week two saw the numbers drop more than 20% and the third episode did even worse. It looked like the ratings had evened off and that was good enough for NBC to order four more episodes, bringing the season total to 17 installments.
Unfortunately, the ratings for Guys with Kids dwindled further downward and one of the last few episodes drew just a 1.1 demo rating and 2.83 million viewers.
Those numbers are just too low — even for NBC — so they’ve cancelled the sitcom. Since there won’t be a second season, we may never know if Chris and Sheila would ever have gotten back together.
What do you think? Did you like Guys with Kids? Are you sorry to hear that there won’t be a second season?
