Paramount Network was Spike TV, until parent-company Viacom rebranded it earlier this year. It then experienced something of a rocky start. Even though season one was in the can, the network postponed, rescheduled, and then cancelled its Heathers TV series adaptation, without airing it, because school violence is all too real in this day and age. They also tried to move the second season of Nobodies over from TV Land, but the fans didn’t follow, so that plan was abandoned. Enter the American Woman TV show. Is this 1970s period piece the program which will finally put the renamed cable network on the map? Will American Woman be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A Paramount Network dramedy, inspired by the childhood of Kyle Richards, American Woman stars Alicia Silverstone, Mena Suvari, Jennifer Bartels, Makenna James, Lia McHugh, Cheyenne Jackson, James Tupper, Diandra Lyle, Tobias Jelinek, Jonathan Chase, and Sam Morgan. The series centers on Bonnie (Silverstone), a single mother of two daughters. Second-wave feminism is on the rise, and the sexual revolution is in full force, when the heroine discovers her husband, Steve (Tupper), is having an affair. Now, Bonnie has to figure out how to make it on her own, with a little help from her friends, Diana (Bartels) and Kathleen (Suvari).

What do you think? Do you like the American Woman TV series? Should Paramount Network cancel or renew this TV show for season two?
9/6/18 update: Paramount Network has cancelled American Woman so there won’t be a second season. Details here.
They create show about irelevant reality star and think Wow, why is canceled?
The cast is great, however, AW has failed to keep my attention. I really wanted to love it! Sorry Dolls!
The show is a great opening act for the new network. My wife and I are from the era and really enjoy the look back. The sets, wardrobe and the music, wow. OMG, mushrooms, yes! It would be a waste not to build on the first season. Someone said it moved slow. We all did in the 70’s! Compared to now, right. And, it’s only 30 minutes with commercials. My wife and I watched the whole season and enjoyed how the characters are evolving. Right now, AW and Yellowstone are the ticket. Let em roll on! Thanks! Nice work Kyle… Read more »
I love Kyle Richards but I’m completly on the fence about this one. I love all the characters EXCEPT Bonnie. Its just feels kinda awkward the way Alicia plays her character. BUT, that being said, id probably watch at least the first two episodes of a second season. See if it gets better. Don’t get me wrong i love Alicia, somthing just off.
I love the show and the cast. Really reminds me of that time in the life of everyone I know. If you miss the episodes, you can catch them on ondemand. Kyle, if you are reading this…would love to read the book. Also, please advertise the 70’s aspect…the music, the clothes, the cars – get the nostalgia juices flowing for all of us who came of age in the 70’s!
Why would I pay to watch episode 1 & 2? That is crazy town!
Please renew! Great job show.
The show should be cancelled, it didn’t grab me as a viewer. It is a tired story line about a single mom again. To be ‘inspired’ by Kyle Richards’ life is not enough for it to be interesting.
It should be cancelled, no substance and doesn’t grab the viewer in any way. It is a tired story line about a single mom.
Just because you don’t like it doesn’t mean it should be canceled . Not everything is about you honey…
