The Good Guys: FOX Series Trying to Attract More Female Viewers

The Good GuysIn May, FOX debuted their new action-comedy, The Good Guys. The cop show stars Bradley Whitford, Colin Hanks, Diana-Maria Riva, and Jenny Wade.

The network had so much faith in the show that they ordered seven additional episodes before the series even premiered and also gave it a slot on the fall schedule. Unfortunately, the TV show hasn’t caught on and looks to have a real uphill battle if The Good Guys is going to survive long enough to be renewed for season two.

FOX recently decided to pull the show from the summer schedule a little early but is still slated to air on Friday nights this fall.

As a result of the show’s rating challenges, The Good Guys is undergoing some adjustments. According to Deadline, FOX wants to focus on attracting more young female viewers.

To do that, there will be more emphasis placed on the romantic relationships and a young female CSI specialist could become a regular character. In addition, Julius (RonReaco Lee), the bumbling criminal, will appear in more episodes.

There are 11 original episodes left and they’ll start airing on Friday, September 24th.

What do you think? Will The Good Guys last long enough to see a second season or is it headed for cancellation?

    The Good Guys was one of the only good shows left on TV. It’s honest humor with downhome morals. What more could you ask?

    The Good Guys was one of the only decent shows left on television. Why did they have to take a good thing away? It’s honest humor with downhome morals. What more could you ask?

    This show makes me laugh, I would hate to see it cancelled. The characters are just really starting to gel in their relationships. I also like seeing snippets of Dallas’s skyline and neighborhoods.

    If you are canceling this show, you should replace it with Lone Star. I will be happy to see The Good Guys Fold their tent and go silently into the network twilight zone forever.
