Sean Hayes was part of NBC‘s hit Will & Grace sitcom on Thursday nights. Will Sean Saves the World be a ratings success as well or will it be cancelled after one season instead? We shall see.
Sean Saves the World revolves around a single gay man (Hayes) who had a hard time juggling his work and his overbearing mom (Linda Lavin) even before his teenage daughter (Samantha Isler) came to live with him. The rest of the cast includes Megan Hilty, Echo Kellum, and Thomas Lennon.
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.

I’ve actually figured out & agree with the previous post on the whole $ “bottom line” the scripted shows are what my “age” group enjoy. Sean saves the World is hilariously funny! I knew I would love it because I loved Sean in Will & Grace. I wasn’t disappointed either! There is NO COMPARISON between this show & a reality show to me! Or better yet,… Read more »
do the rating even count all the people who watch it for free, or just people who pay? This was a good show, just the way it is. I hate reality TV, sports, and predictable cop shows.
