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.
