Last year, Netflix cancelled One Day at a Time after three seasons. Pop revived the series but has since cancelled all of its other upcoming original scripted series (in one case, a week before a premiere). So, is this revived sitcom is already doomed to be dropped again? Will One Day at a Time be cancelled or renewed for season five? Will a second airing on CBS help? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A Pop family sitcom (which is simulcast on TV Land), One Day at a Time stars Justina Machado, Rita Moreno, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz, Todd Grinnell, and Stephen Tobolowsky. This series is a reboot of the Norman Lear original. In the updated comedy, the story centers on Cuban-American Penelope Riera Alverez (Machado). This US Army veteran and divorced mother is just trying to balance work and her social life while raising her kids, Elena (Gomez) and Alex (Ruiz). Thankfully, she has the support of her Cuban mother, Lydia Riera (Moreno), her boss, Dr. Leslie Berkowitz (Tobolowsky), and landlord Pat Schneider (Grinnell).
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Note: The season premiere was also simulcast on sister channel Logo (0.01 in the demo with 26,000 viewers).
Cable ratings are typically released within a day or so of the show’s airing, except for in the case of weekends and holidays.
What do you think? Do you like the One Day at a Time TV series on Pop or TV Land? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a fifth season?
