It wasn’t a strong showing for Guys with Kids but it certainly wasn’t a bomb either. The real test will be to see if last night’s viewers return next week and how the show fares once the other networks start airing originals.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    I love Guys with Kids! Comedic genius!!! As a parent with small children, I can relate to a lot of the same issues presented on the show. My hubby and I laugh our heads off throughout the show. And we almost completely forgot our anniversary this year, just like Gary and Marny! The first few episodes were a little cheesy but had potential so we kept watching. And I’m so glad we did! This show is awesome!!! Truly funny, without alot of the crap that passes as comedy nowadays. And I was as giddy as a school girl when Keisha Knight-Pulliam “Rudy” showed up as Marny’s sister! I enjoy the cast and I think they all mesh well. PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL this show!

    I love Guys with Kids. Please don’t cancel. I one of my favorite show to watch. It too bad they don’t count to viewer who watch on the internet :( or it would have higher rating. It’s actually one of the popular shows to watch on Hulu. Love internet T.V.

    I love this show. I really hope they bring it back for a second season. I don’t want the show to end on that kind of a cliffhanger. This is a really funny show and it would be a shame to see this put out to pasture

    This is an awesome show, I can’t wait till Wednesday to see it. I have 3 favorite shows, big bang, how I met your mother, and guys with kids which is the top. Networks always cancel great shows due to the moronic viewers that have no idea of a great comedy, they don’t give new shows a chance the see one episode and that’s it,iI didn’t like big bang theory when it first came on it took a few episodes to really like the characters and appreciate the show, guys with kids I liked off the bat but people didn’t give it the chance it deserves.

    LOVE THIS SHOW. I know it had a rocky start, and at first I too thought this wasn’t gonna last. But now I see so much potential. Maybe CRITICS(those damn ********) don’t love it because it is not sooooooooooo sophisticated for their taste. But it’s good enough. Actually, I think if NBC gave it one more shot, it has real potential to become one of the most successful comedies in history.
