The alphabet network doesn’t want to break up with Splitting Up Together. ABC has renewed the newbie sitcom for season two. It is the only freshman comedy on the network this season to survive to see a second season.
Splitting Up Together stars Jenna Fischer, Oliver Hudson, Bobby Lee, Diane Farr, Lindsay Price, Olivia Keville, Van Crosby, Sander Thomas, and Kelsey Asbille. The family sitcom centers on a married couple, Lena (Fischer) and Martin (Hudson), who have lost that lovin’ feeling. Having arrived at the conclusion that everyone would be happier if they divorced, Lena and Martin decide to split, but to minimize the impact on their three kids, they’re “bird nesting.” The parent who is on-duty in a given week lives in the house, with the children, while the other decamps to the garage. Once they’re apart, they begin to see their own failures and the other’s contributions. Splitting up together, like this, just might reignite their love.
Splitting Up Together: A Look at the Ratings
The first season of Splitting Up Together is averaging a 1.31 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.48 million viewers. It’s currently ABC’s seventh-highest-rated show in the demo and number nine when it comes to total viewers. The high rankings are in-part due to its debut airing out of the highly-rated season premiere of the Roseanne revival.
