ABC Family has had some nice success with sitcoms like Baby Daddy and Melissa & Joey but new series Mystery Girls has been a disappointment. How about Young & Hungry? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
Young & Hungry revolves around a food blogger (Emily Osment) who goes to work for a wealthy tech entrepreneur (Jonathan Sadowski) as his personal chef. The rest of the cast includes Rex Lee, Aimee Carrero, Mallory Jansen, and Kym Whitley.
The show premiered to 1.09 million viewers with a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic. The second episode saw a dramatic decline but the third episode then saw the numbers rise. The ratings went up and down over the course of the season and the finale nearly matched the premiere’s numbers.
While Young & Hungry’s ratings haven’t been great, they have nearly matched those of the most recent seasons of Baby Daddy and Melissa & Joey. ABC Family could cancel the series but, as the other sitcoms get older, they need to find new sitcoms. For that reason, I suspect they will renew Young & Hungry for a second season.
But, what do you think? Do you like the Young & Hungry TV show? If you ran the network, would you cancel or renew the series?
