What’s This TV Show About?
A workplace comedy, airing on the NBC television network, AP Bio stars Glenn Howerton, Patton Oswalt, Lyric Lewis, Mary Sohn, Jean Villepique, Tom Bennett, Paula Pell, Charlie McCrackin, Jacob McCarthy, Aparna Brielle, Nick Peine, Allisyn Ashley Arm, Eddie Leavy, Jacob Houston, Sari Arambulo, Tucker Albrizzi, and Spence Moore II. After being denied tenure at Harvard, award-winning philosophy scholar Jack Griffin (Howerton) ends up back home in Toledo, Ohio. Now, he teaches Advanced Placement biology at Whitlock High School. Well, that’s what he’s been hired to do. Mostly though, he’s teaching his students how to do his dirty work, for him — which includes driving his professional rival insane.

What do you think? Did you hope AP Bio would be renewed for a second season? How would you feel if NBC had cancelled this TV show, instead?
have just seen first episo got the makings of a top show really enjoyed
I don’t care for most sitcoms aired today. But, I really enjoy A.P. Bio., Would hate to see it cancelled.
I would love for AP Bio to renew season 2. I enjoy the show in all of its cringe moments and hilarity. Please renew!!!
I can’t understand how Seth Meyers can be the executive producer for this mean-spirited program that puts public school teachers, principals, and students down with every “joke”. It sorely misrepresents the profession. I hope it is cancelled mid-season.
Get a sense of humor, you believe that everything on TV represent reality? It’s a comedy, no one watching believes this is how teachers are school really are.
After teachers died in Florida protecting students, AP BIO demeans teachers as lazy morons. Fire the Harvard loser. He doesn’t belong in a school. The union Rep, too, was a stereotype of an angry black woman. This show was offensive, racist, and not funny except for the sex ed part.
Not worth renewing.
Watching some of the episodes, I believe there is room for growth for the lead. In a scene where the coach subs in and degrades the other students, we see that the lead, Jack, is appreciative of his students’ individual characteristics and helps them grow positively in lieu of teaching the course itself. As a comedy, it’s not meant to accurately document how instructors do their jobs, but does a good job in showing how instructors can help (humorously) their students.
I find it unconscionable to use a school shooting in attempting a contrived point. Completely unanaligous.
I’ve worked for years as a teacher. Like it or not, Jack is analogous to many teachers in the profession today. I got out of Middle School teaching because, where I worked, it had become a social circle full of grown women trying to outdo one another in fashion, vacation plans, and administrator merit; it has stopped being about the kids. It was a joke. If this program offends you, you’re probably one of the lazy ones who doesn’t want to be outed. Also, as another commenter has already mentioned, using dead children to condemn a comedy is just vile.
