In early 2016, truTV began airing Those Who Can’t, the cable channel’s first scripted comedy series. The ratings were low but the series had already been renewed for a second season. Will the numbers improve in season two? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
A single-camera comedy, Those Who Can’t revolves around a group of trouble-making teachers at Smoots High School — Spanish teacher and self-proclaimed bon vivant, Loren (Adam Cayton-Holland); former all-star student and gym teacher Andy (Andrew Orvedahl); and angry history teacher Billy (Ben Roy). It also follows school librarian Abbey (Maria Thayer), a sugar-addicted recent divorcee.
In the changing world of television, TV execs look at many factors when deciding to renew or cancel a show. However, the ratings are still very important. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
