Is the first season of the Champions TV show on NBC a winner or a loser? As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether a TV show like Champions is cancelled or renewed for season two. Unfortunately, most of us do not live in Nielsen households. Because many viewers feel frustration when their viewing habits and opinions aren’t considered, we’d like to offer you the chance to rate all of the Champions season one episodes. **Status update below.
An NBC sitcom from creators Charlie Grandy and Mindy Kaling, Champions stars Anders Holm, Andy Favreau, J.J. Totah, Fortune Feimster, Ginger Gonzaga, Mouzam Makkar, Yassir Lester, and Robert Costanzo, with Kaling guest starring. The comedy centers on Vince (Holm), a former high school baseball star who abandoned his aspirations to run his family’s Brooklyn gym and lives above it with his sweet, naïve younger brother, Matthew (Favreau). When Vince’s old fling, Priya (Kaling) drops off their teenaged son, Michael (Totah), so the boy can attend a New York school for the performing arts, Vince and Matthew must rise to the challenge of providing a good home for the young man, despite their utter lack of parenting experience. Fortunately, the gang at the gym is ready to provide some guidance, whether it’s helpful or not.
