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.

What do you think? Do you like the Guys with Kids sitcom? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

Great show…great script and characters…love the ensemble cast. Please, please don’t cancel.


jackie April 22, 2013 at 3:03 pm

don’t cancel!!!!


Richard Hansen April 19, 2013 at 3:35 am

PLEASE PICK IT BACK UP!!! I Watched the crap out of Joey, and it got cancelled. Jimmy Fallon did a great job of creating a “Friends” like bunch of characters. Love-able and witty comedy. In my opinion, it’s the first ensemble thats worked quite frankly since Friends. ………………so please bring it back NBC. I really cant wait to see the next episode to see what Chris does. Thank you kindly, Richard Hansen………i copied and pasted this btw(in case it looks funny)

This show is hilarious! Great cast and Anthony Anderson rocks! Any show with him should never be cancelled. He is a comic genius. When America finally realizes how funny he is this show will be worth its weight in gold for NBC. Keep it on! You wont regret it!


Brent April 16, 2013 at 7:51 pm

My wife and I love this show!! Renew it!


Stephanie April 15, 2013 at 8:46 pm

We came across the first episode of this show completely by accident. Fell in love with it immediately! We are in the 30-40 year old range with young children, so we relate to a lot of its content, and LOVE the humour! I truly do hope this show gets renewed for a second season. Too many reality TV shows right now, not enough simple sitcoms.


Carla April 12, 2013 at 4:18 am

Please make a season 2!
I love this show so much, I bought almost every episode on iTunes, and continue to watch old episodes laughing every time. This show is my new favorite.


MJN5252 April 10, 2013 at 11:19 pm

My wife and I love this show!!!!! All the characters are great, they are funny, it is a well done show and we would really like to see more of it.


Ann April 7, 2013 at 2:17 pm

We love this show. Before they cancel it, why can’t they try it at another time, another day or even another network, but don’t cancel it.


Carla April 12, 2013 at 4:19 am

I agree 100%


Richard Hansen April 19, 2013 at 3:42 am

yea absolutely ! Please dont cancel it! IF ANYTHING it needs more promotion!!! i mean sell the shit out of the ending of the last episode as a cliffhanger type commercial for season 2! I guarantee you’l have an amazing turn out next season
