Last season, NBC introduced just two new sitcoms — Abby’s and I Feel Bad — and both of them were cancelled due to very low ratings. Will the peacock network have better luck this time around with the Sunnyside TV series? Will Sunnyside be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A single-camera comedy series, Sunnyside stars Kal Penn, Joel Kim Booster, Kiran Deol, Poppy Liu, Diana-Maria Riva, Samba Schutte, and Moses Storm. Garrett Modi (Penn) was the youngest New York City Councilman. However, instead of spending his time in office helping the people that elected him, Garrett lost his way and was seduced by the power and glamour of politics. In the midst of his downward spiral, he’s arrested for public intoxication and stupidity. It’s captured on video and his political career is ended. Having hit bottom, Garrett stays with his sister, Mallory (Deol), and wonders where it all went wrong. Then, he’s hired by a diverse group of idealists — Griselda (Riva), Jim Hao (Booster), Mei Lin (Liu), Hakim (Schutte), and Brady (Storm). They dream of becoming American citizens and believe he can help. This gives Garrett a new sense of purpose and a chance for redemption — as long as he remembers where he came from.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
