Happily Divorced: Season Three Decision Coming

happily divorced canceled or renewed for season 3?Many fans of Happily Divorced have been anxiously waiting for TV Land to decide the sitcom’s fate. Will the show be cancelled or renewed for a third season?

According to a Facebook response from executive producer and co-creator Peter Marc Jacobson, the cable channel won’t be making a decision until July. TV Land execs likely want to see how the current crop of sitcoms performs before deciding.

Starring Fran Drescher, John Michael Higgins, Tichina Arnold, Rita Moreno, Valente Rodriguez and Robert Walden, Happily Divorced debuted in 2011.

The 10 episodes of season one performed very well for TV Land, averaging 1.69 million viewers and a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic. The series was renewed for a second season of 12 episodes.

Season two debuted in March 2012 and didn’t perform as well, at least in part because the series had to compete with regular season programming on the major networks. Still, TV Land ordered 12 more episodes for season two (Drescher and Jacobson initially called the order a third season renewal).

Those episodes finished airing in February 2013 and season two ended up averaging 1.1 million with a 0.3 in the demo — significantly lower than season one.

TV Land has renewed worse performing shows in the past but, for whatever reason, we’ll have to wait until July to see if they want to order a third season of Happily Divorced.

What do you think? Should TV Land renew Happily Divorced for season three or cancel it instead? Is the sitcom still worth watching?

    I love this show, please renew, this is the only show I watch on TVLand other than Raymond repeats. I’ll quit watching this channel if they are stupid enough to let this show go!

    Tv Land is taking such a long time to decide. I think fran should take her show to Netflix or Hulu Plus or even Crackle. I think one of those online networks would pick it up.
