Last year, FX gave its Better Things TV show an early second season renewal, after just two episodes had aired. The comedy-drama from creators Pamela Adlon and Louis C.K. went on to earn tepid ratings over the course of its first season. Can they build up the audience in season two? Will Better Things be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
Better Things revolves around Sam Fox (Adlon), a working actor in Los Angeles. The FX cast also includes Mikey Madison, Hannah Alligood, Olivia Edward, Celia Imrie, Rebecca Metz, and Alysia Reiner. Sam 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. She just wants to find a little time to live her own life, too.
In the changing world of television, TV execs look at many factors when deciding to renew or cancel a show. However, the ratings are still very important. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

10/19 update: Better Things has been renewed for a third season on FX. Details here.
Best and most creative programs on TV. Pamela Adlon is a creative genius. Now that we are under stay at home restrictions, watching my DVDs of Better Things has helped keep my spirits up. Please renew this for Season 5. A quality show like this deserves to be renewed.
I like this production and Pam Adlon, but the gay daughter is annoying!
love the show
I love this show. New and refreshing. Please renew for Season 3.
Better Things is the best show I have seen in a long time. Please continue to season 3!!!
Better Things is an amazing show that needs to continue with Season 3. Its raw exterior is real which sets the veiwer up for laughs and tears. I LOVE it!
I really liked the show in the beginning but it has slowed down to an unfunny show about a depressed lady who is hostile towards men she dates and men in general and is sometimes mean and abusive to just about anyone. Too bad, humor provides the buoyancy to broach difficult subjects which Adlon has a real gift at examining, but the show seems to have lost its sense of humor.
So I gave up on the show that had such promise.
Very good show no one knows about.
I think that’s the issue. I didn’t know about the show until Season 4. I was immediately addicted to it’s humor and raw creativity.
