Young & Hungry: Should the Comedy Be Cancelled or Renewed?

Young & Hungry TV show on ABC Family: cancel or renew for season 2?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?

Update: Young & Hungry has been renewed for a second season on ABC Family.

At first, when I heard the title, I was like, “Really? “Young and Hungry”? The title sounds awful, so the show must be as well.” However, as I started watching, I began to look forward to the episodes, seeing what happened with Gabi and her love triangle. Even though Jesse McCartney was a huge favorite of mine (and still is) growing up, Jonathan Sadowski was hilarious in “She’s The Man”. Thus, I think the show should be renewed. Not just because of the wonderful actors, but the storylines, albeit somewhat wacky, are sweet at the end of the day. Whether Josh remains a big brother or becomes a lover to Gabi, I cannot wait to see what unfolds next. A show is fabulous when the ending that Y&H brought left me both satisfied and longing to see what happens next. Thus, pulling at heartstrings = definite renewal to me.

I love Young & Hungry. The show needs more episodes, especially to allow the characters some ability to develop more. The chemistry between the characters is awesome and I love this show.

Yes, please! :)

Please, please renew the show! I love the caracters and the story too. It is just not enough if you cancel this show at 10 episodes… My vote is 10/10.

I’m sorry if I had mistakes in my comment, it’s because I learn English since only 2 years. :)

I hope I can write a comment again, perhaps under the post about the 10th season… :)

10 episodes is just not enough!! I wish this show was on for at least an hour 5 days a week (I know that’s a little unrealistic but seriously)! I will be devastated if this show is cancelled! PLEASE RENEW FOR MANY MANY MANY MORE SEASONS!!!!

OMG I’m totally obsessed!!! I’ll be devistated if they cancel it! The season finale was clearly an opening for a what happens next we need more time! I’m in love please renew it!!! The characters are funny & lovable! We need closure- I say at least one more season. But 2 would be better. A little character growth! I just need it to come back! Need!!!!

I loved the show! I feel like the 20 – 35 age group could really relate to this show with more promotions and proper use of social media and blogging (since it is about a food blogger).
