Although it has long relied upon Dick Wolf’s procedural Chicago and Law & Order franchises to pay the rent, in the last couple of years NBC has diversified — with TV shows like family drama This Is Us and the philosophical fantasy comedy The Good Place . Both of these unique TV series have inspired lots of buzz, drawn critical acclaim, and performed well in the Nielsens. Now the Peacock Network has introduced its new female-led Good Girls TV show, which feels decidedly of-the-moment. In the first season, can this dramedy capitalize on the zeitgeist and earn ratings as strong as its driven anti-heroines? Will Good Girls be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A dark NBC comedy-drama, Good Girls stars Christina Hendricks, Retta, Mae Whitman, Matthew Lillard, Reno Wilson, Manny Montana, Lidya Jewett, Izzy Stannard, and David Hornsby. The TV series centers on three suburban mothers who have been struggling to get by. After a series of setbacks leaves them desperate, they decide to hold up the local Fine & Frugal supermarket, but their take far exceeds their expectations. Soon, they’re in deep with the local crime boss, and these “good girls” find themselves with an array of bad choices. **Status update below.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
