ABC is still supporting Child Support. Today, the network announced they’ve renewed the TV show for a second season.
Hosted by Fred Savage and created by Ricky Gervais, the game show asks adult players to try and answer 10 questions correctly for a prize of $200,000. When the grownups give the wrong answer, that’s when five cute and funny kids ride to the rescue.
A Look at the Ratings:
ABC‘s renewal of Child Support is surprising given its poor ratings. Over six episodes, season one averaged a .72 rating in the 18-49 demo and 3.742 million viewers, making it on one of the network’s lowest-rated unscripted series for the 2017-2018 season.
