Shows like The Flash and Arrow have been performing very well in the ratings for The CW. Now, NBC is trying their own show that’s based in the DC Comics universe but this one is a comedy. Will the Powerless TV series be a success for the peacock network? Will it be quickly cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
The Powerless TV show follows Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens). She’s the new Director of Research & Development for Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that specializes in products that make defenseless bystanders feel a little safer. She’s full of confidence and has big ideas but Emily quickly discovers those are a bit beyond her new boss, Vanderveer “Van” Wayne (Alan Tudyk), the black sheep of his family. Her well-meaning officemates include Chief Design Officer Teddy (Danny Pudi), Chief Engineer Ron (Ron Funches), and Jackie (Christina Kirk), Van Wayne’s beleaguered and long-suffering executive assistant.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
