After receiving a barrage of negative reviews, how will Guys with Kids perform in the ratings? Will it end up being quickly cancelled or end up being a surprise hit instead?
Per the fast affiliate ratings, last night’s premiere registered a 2.2 in the 18-49 demographic with 6.28 million total viewers. That wasn’t a terrible showing but it certainly wasn’t a great one either. It lost 24% of the demo audience from its lead-in, America’s Got Talent.
Based on all of the negative comments and reviews that I’ve seen, I think that NBC should be happy that Guys with Kids wasn’t an out-of-the-gate bomb.
It seems unlikely to happen but, if most of the premiere audience sticks around for the rest of the season, the network will have a hit — by NBC’s current standards anyway.
What do you think? Did you watch the series premiere of Guys with Kids? Did you like it? Will you watch again?
