What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the Showtime cable channel, the Moonbase 8 comedy TV show stars Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker, and John C. Reilly. Set in the isolated desert of Winslow, Arizona at NASA’s Moon Base Simulator, this series follows eager (though subpar) astronauts. Doctor Michael “Skip” Henai (Armisen) is the son of an astronaut. Professor Scott “Rook” Sloan (Heidecker) is a Christian who wants to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in space. Their leader is Robert “Cap” Caputo (Reilly), a former helicopter pilot and supposed military veteran. As these astronauts attempt to qualify for their first lunar mission, they work vigorously to complete their training. A series of unexpected circumstances force the astronauts to question their own mental sanity, trust in each other, and whether or not they’re cut out for space travel.
Season One Ratings
Will Showtime cancel or renew Moonbase 8 for season two? Despite the names behind the show, the ratings are very, very low for this comedy series. It’s worth noting however that the entire season was released digitally ahead of the linear launch. Since Showtime isn’t ad-supported, they just have to keep their viewers happy. Moonbase 8 seems to fit in with Showtime’s brand so, I think it will be renewed. I’ll update this page with breaking developments.
