What’s This TV Show About?
An NBC sitcom, The Good Place stars Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto, and D’Arcy Carden. Kirby Howell-Baptiste recurs in season three. The series centers on Eleanor Shellstrop (Bell) who, after dying, mistakenly ends up in The Good Place — instead of The Bad Place — where she truly belongs. Along with fellow lost souls, indecisive philosopher Chidi Anagonye (Harper), shallow socialite Tahani Al-Jamil (Jamil), and blundering Blake Bortles super-fan, Jason Mendoza (Jacinto), Eleanor tries to find the good person within.
After pleading their case to the Judge (Maya Rudolph) in the season two finale, the gang is given a second shot a living a good life. Season three finds them back on Earth. Separated and retaining no memory of one another their task seems insurmountable, until they get a little help from Good Place architect Michael (Danson) who, along with not-a-robot Janet (Carden), is watching over them from afar.
Season Three Ratings
The third season of The Good Place is averaging a 0.86 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.78 million viewers. Compared to season two, that’s down by 25% and 28%, respectively. Compare its standing to the other NBC TV shows we are tracking.
Will NBC cancel or renew The Good Place for a fourth season? Despite lower ratings, I think it will score a renewal. Creator Mike Schur has a lot of good will built up at the Peacock Network, and this comedy has bred a devoted fanbase. Still, the series is a long way off from having enough episodes for a syndication package. I’ll keep a hungry eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments.
