Based on a book by Orli Auslander, I Feel Bad stars Sarayu Blue, Paul Adelstein, Madhur Jaffrey, Brian George, James Buckley, Zach Cherry, Johnny Pemberton, and Aisling Bea. The sitcom centers on Emet Kamala-Sweetzer (Blue), the head artist at a video game company and a married mother of three. Although Emet feels pressure to be perfect at everything in her life, like the rest of us, she’s just muddling through. Consequently, she can’t stop feeling guilty about any number of things and knows all too well her shortcomings as a wife, mother, and professional. She may not know what she’ll be bad about next, but she always knows it’s just around the corner.
The first season of I Feel Bad averaged a 0.56 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.51 million viewers. Compared to the other scripted NBC TV shows of the 2018-19 season, I Feel Bad ranked in 16th place in the demo and was in 15th place in overall viewership.
The last two episodes aired on December 27th, seemingly an indication that NBC had given up on the comedy series.
