What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the CBS television network, Life in Pieces follows the Short family. Every episode of the comedy series is divided into four parts.

John (James Brolin) and Joan Short (Dianne Wiest) head up the family. The cast also includes Colin Hanks, Betsy Brandt, Thomas Sadoski, Zoe Lister-Jones, Dan Bakkedahl, Angelique Cabral, Niall Cunningham, Holly Barrett, Giselle Eisenberg, and Hunter King.

The second season of Life in Pieces averaged a 1.26 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.12 million viewers. Compared to season one, the sitcom is down by 37% in the demo and has dropped by 30% in terms of average total audience size. Find out how Life in Pieces stacks up against the other CBS TV shows.
CBS holds their sitcoms to high standards when it comes to ratings and Life in Pieces has come way down this year. I suspect that the network will renew this ensemble comedy for a third season but it’s certainly not a sure thing. I’ll be watching with great interest.
3/23 update: Life in Pieces has been renewed for season three on CBS. Details here. I’ll look elsewhere for my supper.
