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. A divorced woman without a filter, Sam Fox (Adlon) is doing her best to raise her three daughters — teenager Max (Madison), eccentric Frankie (Alligood), and spicy 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 Four Ratings
The fourth season of Better Things averages a 0.11 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 294,000 viewers. Compared to season three, that’s down by 10% in the demo and down by 12% in viewership. Find out how Better Things stacks up against other FX TV shows.
Will FX cancel or renew Better Things for season five? The traditional ratings aren’t very good, even when compared to other FX shows. Still, Disney is focusing on producing plenty of content for FX that can then be streamed on Hulu (which the company also controls). This may be the final year for Better Things but my gut tells me it will be renewed instead. I’ll update this page with breaking developments.
