What’s This TV Show About?
An ABC legal drama, For the People stars Britt Robertson, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Ben Rappaport, Susannah Flood, Wesam Keesh, Regé-Jean Page, Ben Shenkman, Hope Davis, Charles Michael Davis, Vondie Curtis-Hall, and Anna Deavere Smith. The Shondaland legal drama unfolds at “The Mother Court,” i.e. the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. The ABC TV series centers on six young attorneys, who work on both sides of the law. Whether they represent the defense or the people, these lawyers ply their trade, trying some of the most publicized cases, and in federal court, the stakes can be sky high.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of For the People averaged a 0.49 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.87 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 22% in the demo and up by 13% in viewership. Find out how For the People stacks up against other ABC TV shows.
Will ABC cancel or renew For the People for season three? I’m surprised it came back for this season, considering that the Alphabet Network cancelled shows which outperformed it. The network needs new dramas and clearly wants to keep a connection to Shondaland with all of its Thursday night shows but, this series doesn’t seem to be working. Viewership is way up but the demo is way down. I think it will be cancelled but this one could go either way. Subscribe for free alerts on For the People cancellation or renewal news.
