Despite some low ratings, the Good Girls TV show has been renewed for a third season at NBC. A half dozen episodes of the second season have aired on Sunday nights and they’ve averaged a 0.62 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.41 million viewers (in the live+same day ratings). Compared to the first season, that’s down by 40% in the demo and down by 46% in viewership.
A dark NBC comedy drama, Good Girls stars Christina Hendricks, Retta, Mae Whitman, Matthew Lillard, Reno Wilson, Manny Montana, Lidya Jewett, and Izzy Stannard. The TV series centers on three suburban mothers who have been struggling to get by. After a series of setbacks, they 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. In season two, the women have to deal with the fallout of their criminality.
Here’s NBC’s renewal announcement:
