It seems Mickey Murphy still has the luck o’ the Irish. FOX has ordered an additional seven episodes for a full second season of The Mick TV show. This brings the sitcom’s season two order up from 13 to 20 episodes — seven more than it received for its freshman outing.
A scripted FOX comedy, The Mick stars Kaitlin Olson, Sofia Black-D’Elia, Thomas Barbusca, Jack Stanton, Carla Jimenez, and Scott MacArthur. It centers on Mickey (Olson), an ill-equipped grifter who is left to care for her sister’s spoiled children, in their Greenwich, Connecticut home.
The Mick: A Look at the Ratings
The second season of The Mick is averaging a 0.84 rating in the 18-49 demographic and drawing an average audience of 2.40 million viewers. Compared to season one, it is down by 24% and 19%, respectively. The full season order comes as a little bit of a surprise, since The Mick is 12th when sorted by its demo ratings and 14th in terms of total viewership, out of the 15 scripted FOX TV shows we’re currently tracking.
Although FOX has not yet posted this news on its press site, Deadline confirms the network has ordered the additional episodes.
