TLC, known for reality shows and docu-series, finally dipped a toe into the scripted end of the pool with Tyler Perry’s Too Close to Home TV show. It follows a woman who, after a major political scandal, retreats to the small town and family she tried to leave behind.
Too Close to Home stars Danielle Savre, Kelly Sullivan, Brock O’Hurn, Brad Benedict, and Brooke Anne Smith. Courtney Burrell, Azur-De, Nelson Estevez, Angela Rigsby, James Shanklin, KD Aubert, and Crystle Stewart recur. Heather Locklear guest stars.
The drama series just finished its second season tonight but, how long will this scripted TLC TV show last?
The first season of Too Close to Home averaged just a 0.19 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 713,000 viewers and still landed a renewal. The TLC execs were likely hoping to see some increases in season two.
Well, their gamble has paid off. Season two has averaged a 0.31 in the demo with 1.07 million viewers. While those are still pretty low ratings, they are an increase of more than 62% in the demo and more than 50% in viewership.
Based on the ratings, it seems likely that TLC will renew Too Close to Home for a third season. Hopefully, for the fans, they’ll order more than just eight episodes next time around.
But, what do you think? Are you a fan this TV show? Should Too Close to Home be cancelled or renewed for season three on TLC?
