Last season, Life in Pieces had a positive start in the ratings but the numbers fell quite a bit by the end of season one. The show could have been cancelled but CBS renewed it instead. Will the numbers continue to fall in season two? Will there be a third season? Stay tuned.
Life in Pieces revolves around four branches of the Short family tree and their sometimes awkward, funny, and touching milestones. The family’s lives unfold in four short stories each episode. The season two cast includes James Brolin, Dianne Wiest, Thomas Sadoski, Angelique Cabral, Colin Hanks, Zoe Lister-Jones, Niall Cunningham, Betsy Brandt, Dan Bakkedahl, Giselle Eisenberg, Holly J. Barrett, and Hunter King.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

For comparisons: The first season of Life in Pieces on CBS averaged a 2.00 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 8.69 million total viewers (live + same day ratings).
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
