What’s This TV Show About?
An FX black comedy, Baskets stars Zach Galifianakis, Louie Anderson and Martha Kelly. The surreal series centers on Chip Baskets (Galifianakis), who dreamt of being a classically trained French clown, but things didn’t pan out for him when he went to study in Paris. He returns home and, this season, Chip works at his judgmental family’s rodeo, headed up by his mom, Christine (Anderson). Chip has his first full-time job since he worked at Arby’s, but seems to lack the requisite skills. Although his twin brother Dale (Galifianakis) is the only one of the Baskets to have run a business, he can’t get anyone to listen to him. When she’s not otherwise distracted, at least Chip’s friend Martha (Kelly) is able to lend a hand.
Season Three Ratings
The third season of Baskets averaged a 0.14 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 407,000 viewers. Compared to season two, that’s down by 31% in the demo and down by 16% in viewers. Find out how Baskets stacks up against the other FX TV shows.
Will FX cancel or renew Baskets for a fourth season? The ratings aren’t very strong but I suspect it’s cheap to produce. Galifianakis and Anderson have also garnered awards and nominations. I believe Baskets will be renewed for a fourth season, as long as the talent want to continue doing it. For now, I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments.
