Looks like Carol’s Second Act won’t actually get a second act. CBS just announced they’ve cancelled the TV show after only one season.
The Carol’s Second Act sitcom revolves around Carol Kenney (Patricia Heaton), a woman in her 50s who has embarked on a unique second act after raising her children, getting divorced, and retiring from teaching. She pursues her dream of becoming a doctor. The cast also includes Kyle MacLachlan, Ito Aghayere, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Sabrina Jalees, Lucas Neff, and Ashley Tisdale.
The first season of Carol’s Second Act averaged a 0.63 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.99 million viewers. Sadly, those numbers make Carol’s Second Act one of CBS‘ lowest-rated TV shows for the 2019-20 season.
What do you think? Have you seen Carol’s Second Act? Would you have watched a second season of this CBS TV series?
I’m sad! I loved this show and I loved all the actresses and actors and was hoping another season would happen 🙁
Well that blows, love Patricia Heaton.
Because I love ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ and watch the reruns every night I thought I would really enjoy Heaton in her new role but I couldn’t take even the first show. I knew it wasn’t going to make it when I tried again to watch it and was bored to tears! The supporting cast…sucked! She is much better at playing awife/mother. Good Luck!
I loved Patricia Heaton in Everybody Loves Raymond and in The Middle, but I just couldn’t get into this one. The supporting cast sucked, leaving Ms. Heaton to try to carry the whole show.
I did enjoy the show & wish CBS would have let them tweak the details some. maybe another network will pick it up. I do think Patrica Heaton had to carry the cast a little.
The time slot was wrong. It should have been aired earlier so us older folks could be awake to watch. My generation 54+ enjoyed it
YES, loved this show
The Caleb and Daniel characters are just too stupid as supposed scientists/physicians to add anything to the show. Better writing around Patricia Heaton would resuscitate this show. I’ve watched it faithfully and will miss her character growth.
I was hopeing that carol’s second act would get renewed i’ll just have to watch season 1 on my Samsung tablet
Um just ok. I watched it but will not miss it. So I am ok with this cancel
Lame lame lame
Lam show. One episode enough. Back to crawling into bed with Raymond the epity of a lazy husband.
What’s wrong with CBS, they are cancelling all the good stuff. This is a funny show
I agree. I loved this show! I will miss it.
This show was really found it’s groove by mid to late season. You need to give characters a chance to find to mesh and work out the kinks which clearly they did! I cannot believe it’s cancelled. Patricia Heaton is wonderful. Please reconsider!!! I mean seriously I’ve seen The Neighborhood and Bob Hearts Abishola and have not been impressed at all but they remain on television. PLEASE reconsider and bring CAROL’S SECOND ACT back!!!
I liked the show as the season went along, especially as they started to add storylines outside of the hospital. I’m not surprised CBS cancelled it, though. Now I’ll be down to two 1/2 hour shows on CBS and nothing else.
Patricia Heaton has been a part of two of my favorite shows, those being Everybody Loves Raymond and The Middle (so underappreciated in my opinion). I saw very little of this but the little that I saw didn’t really impress me that much. I hope she and the rest of the cast can find something else.
