In the Flow with Affion Crockett: FOX’s New Sketch Comedy Show; Cancel or Keep It?

In the Flow with Affion Crockett cancel keepIt doesn’t seem like it was very long ago that FOX was airing sketch comedy shows like MADtv and In Living Color. Now, the network has decided to try a new one called In the Flow with Affion Crockett. Will it last as long as its predecessors or be quickly cancelled instead?

In the Flow with Affion Crockett is a half-hour comedy program that stars, you guessed it, comedian and YouTube sensation Affion Crockett. The TV series is executive produced by Jamie Foxx, a guy who knows a thing or two about this kind of show. In addition to offering viewers Crockett’s slanted view on all things pop culture (like movie trailers, commercials, and music videos), the episodes include appearances by celebrity guest stars.

The show debuted on Sunday, August 14th, with two back-to-back installments. The first episode attracted just a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.6 million viewers. Many apparently decided that they’d had enough and didn’t stick around for the second installment. That one dropped 23% in the ratings, to a 1.0 in the demo and 2.23 million viewers. Both ranked third in their timeslots.

The following week, In the Flow bumped up just a bit to a 1.1 rating and 2.39 million. The following Sunday’s dropped back down to a 1.0 with 2.06 million, a series low in total viewers.

The network seemed to lose faith in In the Flow last April when they cut the episode order from 12 to six installments. Considering that FOX gets better ratings with reruns of its animated programs, there doesn’t seem like there’s any reason to order any more or renew In the Flow for a second season. The last episode of the season (and likely the series) is schedule for next Sunday night.

But, what do you think? Do you like In the Flow with Affion Crockett? Do you think it should get a second season or that it should have been cancelled weeks ago?

Gotta give it a chance. Affion is phenomenally talented. The show needs to find its footing. A second season will give them a chance to smooth out the rough edges. We could be missing out on a Jim Carey, Damon Wayons, dave Chappelle type of talent if the plug is pulled on this one.

Fox just sprung it with NO warning! I <3'd "In Living Color" and early seasons of "MADtv". I say see where it goes. You can't put all your might on animation, Fringe, AI and Bones. House is up in the air and reality tv is crap. Let's have something off the wall and see if it sticks!

I dont think so. They should give it another shot. Fox didnt give it a boost on there advertisment like they do to there other shows. I personally think its a pretty funny show.
