NBC has been having a hard time finding new hit comedies for their Thursday night schedule. Last season’s were all cancelled. Will A to Z be a success and be renewed for a second season or will be canned as well? Is it worth watching?
A to Z follows the story of Andrew (Ben Feldman) and Zelda (Cristin Milioti) — two young people who are very different. Their relationship shouldn’t work and yet it does. Is it true love forever or just a detour in destiny? The rest of the cast includes Christina Kirk, Henry Zebrowski, Hong Chau, Lenora Crichlow, with Katey Sagal as narrator.
The sitcom premiered on October 2nd to an underwhelming 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.79 million total viewers. In week two, the ratings fell to a 1.0 in the demo and 3.63 million, a decline of 24% in viewership.
Unless the numbers start going up, it seems very likely that A to Z will end up being cancelled after one season. NBC is struggling on Thursdays but this doesn’t seem to be an answer to their problems.
But, what do you think? Do you like the A to Z sitcom? Cancel or keep it?
