What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the FX cable channel, Better Things stars Pamela Adlon, Mikey Madison, Hannah Alligood, Olivia Edward, Celia Imrie, Rebecca Metz, and Alysia Reiner. Sam (Adlon) is a divorced woman without a filter, who’s just trying to raise her three daughters — teenager Max (Madison), eccentric Frankie (Alligood) and spicey Duke (Edward). She also has to keep an eye out on her mother, Phil (Imrie). Sam fills the roles of dad, referee, and the cops, as well. If only she could find a little time to live her own life, too.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of Better Things averaged a 0.15 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 459,000 viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 24% in the demo and down by 3% in viewership. Find out how Better Things stacks up against the other FX TV shows.
Although it premiered with worse numbers than its first season, I suspect that FX will renew Better Things for season three. I’m interested in seeing if the cable network will be vindicated in its decision to give this comedy drama from Adlon and Louis C.K. an early second season renewal. I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update this page from time to time. Subscribe for free updates on any Better Things cancellation or renewal news.
