What’s This TV Show About?
A satirical musical comedy airing on The CW television network, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend stars Rachel Bloom, who co-created the show with Aline Brosh McKenna, as Rebecca Bunch, a “tightly wound” Ivy educated lawyer. The cast also includes Vincent Rodriguez III, Donna Lynne Champlin, Pete Gardner, Vella Lovell, Gabrielle Ruiz, David Hull, and Scott Michael Foster. After reconnecting with Josh (Rodriguez), her summer camp crush, Rebecca quits a top New York law firm and takes off for California. She’s not following Josh though, as that would be crazy.
This third season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend picks up right after Josh strands Rebecca at the altar, in order to pursue the priesthood. Now everyone, including Rebecca, needs to figure out whether her attraction to him has veered into the arena of fatal. Meanwhile, handsome WASP Nathaniel Plimpton III (Foster) has drifted into her orbit, but he’s got his own issues. The rest of the West Covina crew are also struggling on their own road to happiness, and the issue of Rebecca’s mental health still remains an open question.
Season Three Ratings
The third season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend averaged a 0.22 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 631,000 viewers. Compared to season two, that’s up by 9% in the demo and up by 13% in viewership. Learn how Crazy Ex-Girlfriend stacks up against the other CW TV shows.
The ratings are up year-over-year so I think this CW series will be renewed. Last year, this comedy was the network’s lowest rated series in both its demo and total viewership numbers, but it snagged a renewal. CW President Mark Pedowitz credits the series’ critical acclaim and its positive effect on the network’s image for its survival. Now, the network is expanding to six nights a week so, they’re going to need more content than usual for the 2018-19 season. I’ll update this page with new developments.

The network is expanding its programming to Sunday nights, which means there is more room for old favorites. Either way though, the end is more or less nigh. Co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna says if Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is renewed, it will be for a fourth and final season. Details here.
