Can Garrett get back on track in the first season of the Sunnyside TV show on NBC? As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether a TV show like Sunnyside is cancelled or renewed for season two. Unfortunately, most of us do not live in Nielsen households. Because many viewers feel frustration when their viewing habits and opinions aren’t considered, we invite you to rate all of the first season episodes of Sunnyside here. *Status update below.
An NBC 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.

didnt need seeing the one woman have 15 jobs, or the “crazy rich asians “, i like kal penn, but i watch comedies for laughter, laughs are to far and inbetween , i get this is a “comedy” about immigrants trying to get their citizenship, but its not funny, will give it another shot, but not hopeful, could be one of the first cancellations of the year.
