Shively plays Jimmy O’Neal on the ABC sitcom, which just finished its second season earlier this month. The cast also includes Martha Plimpton, Jay R. Ferguson, Noah Galvin, Bebe Wood, and Mary Hollis Inboden.
The Real O’Neals never performed all that well in the ratings and season two’s numbers dropped even further. Overall, the season averaged a .93 rating in the 18-49 demo and only 3.068 million viewers. ABC has not announced yet whether the sitcom will return for a third season or not. However, the odds look slim.
NBC’s new pilot Spaced Out “is a workplace comedy that centers on a working-class genius, Peter Gibbons (Shively), and his struggles to fit in with an established team — all made more difficult when their job is building a rocket to Mars.”
