What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the Showtime cable channel, Black Monday stars Don Cheadle, Regina Hall, Paul Scheer, and Andrew Rannells. Season two guests include Yassir Lester, Ken Marino, Horatio Sanz, Casey Wilson, Tuc Watkins, June Diane Raphael, Dulé Hill, and Patrick Fabian. The story began with Maurice “Mo” Monroe (Cheadle) and his group of outsiders taking on the old-boys club of 1987 Wall Street, ultimately leading to the largest stock market crash in history. Season two focuses on the aftermath. Dawn (Hall) and Blair (Rannells) are the bosses now and discover that it’s not as easy as it looks. Meanwhile, Mo is on the run with Keith (Scheer).
Season Two Ratings
The second season of Black Monday averaged a 0.02 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 113,000 viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 71% in the demo and down by 61% in viewership. Find out how Black Monday stacks up against other Showtime TV shows.
Will Showtime cancel or renew Black Monday for season three? The ratings are much, much lower than last season but, given world events, viewers may be a bit distracted. In the end, Showtime doesn’t have to please advertisers, the channel just needs to give subscribers programming they like and can’t get elsewhere. With a cast like this, I lean toward a renewal but the incredibly low numbers are giving me pause. I’ll update this page with breaking developments.
