What’s This TV Show About?
A workplace comedy series airing on the NBC television network, the American Auto TV show stars Ana Gasteyer, Harriet Dyer, Jon Barinholtz, Humphrey Ker, Michael B. Washington, Tye White, and X Mayo. Set in Detroit, the story finds the corporate executives of Payne Motors at a crossroads — adapt to the changing times or be sent to the junkyard. Shaking things up is the new CEO, Katherine Hastings (Gasteyer), whose leadership, experience, and savvy is only slightly offset by her complete lack of knowledge about cars. Those also working at the company include Sadie (Dyer), the type-A head of communications; Dori (X Mayo), the sweet assistant to the CEO; Cyrus (Washinton), the Chief Producer Designer; Elliot (Ker), the Chief Sales Officer; Wesley (Barinholtz), the direct descendant of the company’s founder; and Jack (White), an assembly line worker. From the corporate office to the factory floor, the crew of Payne Motors is driving home the laughs.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of American Auto averages a 0.35 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.42 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 5% in the demo and up by 12% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (includes DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled. Find out how American Auto stacks up against other NBC TV shows.
Will NBC cancel or renew American Auto for season three? The show drew mediocre ratings in its first season
but was still the network’s second-highest-rated comedy. The series now has Night Court as a lead-in and that should help bring American Auto more viewers. I think there’s a good chance that the show will be renewed for a third season. I’ll update this page with breaking developments.
