The Good Guys: FOX TV Show Ending Early; Will It Be Back?

The Good GuysFOX has decided to wrap their summer run of The Good Guys a few weeks early, on August 2nd. The network had previously planned to air original episodes of the Bradley Whitford / Colin Hanks series until August 23rd.

The series debuted to a disappointing 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.93 million viewers. The numbers have essentially fallen each week and hit a low of a 1.0 rating and 3.42 million viewers.

Despite garnering poor ratings during the summer months, The Good Guys remains on the network’s fall schedule. Original episodes will return to FOX beginning Friday, September 24th. It remains to be seen how long that will last.

FOX has lower expectations for summer shows but it’s hard to believe that the network is pleased with the series’ performance. It seems that they’re keeping it on the fall schedule in hopes that viewers will tune in on Friday nights instead of trying one of the other networks’ new shows.

TV show supportBy the time Good Guys finishes its summer run, FOX will have aired nine original episodes. That will leave 11 new episodes for the fall. The real test will be to see if the network orders any more. Right now, that doesn’t seem likely.

What do you think? Do you like The Good Guys? Do you think it’ll last to see a second season? Should it?

    I only watch two regular shows on TV and one is The Good Guys and the other is Human Target. I think both of them are great and if they go away that will reduce my regular weekly TV offering for this type of viewing. Keep’em going, nothing else on any better.

    The Good Guys is one of the best shows on FOX-and on Fridays…no matter what day they’re on…I love it! It’s “clean” in contrast to so many shows now days. Please bring it back! Maybe it could change networks like Medium did??
    Is anyone doing a petition??

    funniest show ive seen in a long time . the whole family watches it together.The more macho Dan Stark tries to be the more we laugh. Who ever is in charge of checking your ratings is an idiot.this show should be up in the top 3 at least. Change the time and day.
    Don,t cancel it.
