For several years, ABC has focused on airing all sorts of family comedies and this new Home Economics series seems like a good fit. But, how will it measure up in the ratings? Will Home Economics be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status Update Below.
The Home Economics TV show stars Topher Grace, Caitlin McGee, Jimmy Tatro, Karla Souza, Sasheer Zamata, Shiloh Bearman, Jordyn Curet, Chloe Jo Rountree, and JeCobi Swain. The show takes a look at the heartwarming yet super-uncomfortable and sometimes frustrating relationship among three adult siblings of the Hayworth family. Connor (Tatro) is the youngest and most successful sibling of the family. He runs his own private equity firm and his marriage is falling apart. He has a daughter named Gretchen (Bearman). Tom (Grace) is the middle sibling and is a middle-class author who is struggling. He is married to Marina (Souza), a former attorney, and they have three kids. Sarah (McGee) is the eldest sibling and an out-of-work child therapist who’s barely making ends meet. She is married to Denise (Zamata), a teacher, and they have two kids and live in a cramped Bay Area loft.

Why always focus on the demographic most likely to prefer binge watching or streaming stuff as opposed to watching at a set time every week?
The TV landscape has changed and so to should the way viewership is recorded be changed.
As much as I love the show and appreciate the more “out there” humour like so many other good comedies I do not see it lasting beyond one season.
Another “woke” show, ticking all the boxes. But it had some heart and some subtle humor, so I’ll stick around for a while.
After a couple of eps? No, I won’t.
