Life Unexpected: Promising Premiere; Cancel or Keep It?

Life UnexpectedLast night, the CW aired a brand new show, Life Unexpected, after having aired repeats of other programming for more than a month. So, how did it do? Did anyone remember to watch?

Life Unexpected is centered around a teenager named Lux (Brittany Robertson) who’s spent most of her life bouncing from one foster home to another. She decides to get emancipated and ends up meeting her biological family. The series also stars Shiri Appleby, Kristoffer Polaha, Kerr Smith, Reggie Austin, and Austin Basis.

Last night’s premiere attracted a small 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.74 million viewers. That put the show in fifth place for the timeslot.

Is Life Unexpected worth watching?

While that doesn’t sound very good, it’s the largest total audience that the CW network has had for that timeslot in a year. The series also built considerably from its One Tree Hill lead-in.

In addition, Life Unexpected grew or maintained its audience in various areas throughout the hour, meaning that most didn’t get tired of it and tune out. The big question of course will be if viewers return for a second look next week.

What do you think? Is Life Unexpected worth watching? Will viewers keep watching? Cancel or keep it?
