This evening, we say goodbye to Sam and Eddie from the Take Two TV show. While the alphabet network hasn’t cancelled the summer TV show, it does seem highly unlikely that they’ll renew it for a second season. What do you think?
An ABC crime comedy-drama from Castle creators Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe, Take Two stars Rachel Bilson, Eddie Cibrian, Xavier de Guzman, Aliyah O’Brien, Alice Lee, and Jordan Gavaris. The story centers on actress Sam Swift (Bilson), who, after an epic, viral breakdown has to rehab her image and rebuild her career. She asks to shadow lone-wolf private investigator, Eddie Valetik (Cibrian), who resents the gig, but soon finds her acting experience comes in handy on the job.
The Take Two series debuted in June and got off to a poor start, attracting a 0.50 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.36 million viewers. The ratings dropped lower during the course of the season and perked up occasionally.
To be fair, the series was pre-empted a few times over the course of the season which surely didn’t help things. Take Two also had to sometimes contend with football game pre-emptions and delays in some markets. Those didn’t help the ratings but the show just didn’t attract much of an audience right from the start.
There were some boosts in delayed viewing but, delayed viewing doesn’t typically generate commercial revenue for a network. It seems unlikely that ABC will renew Take Two for a second season but, because it’s a summer show, there’s a chance they may decide to revamp the program a bit and give it another try in 2019.
What do you think? Do you like the Take Two TV show? Would you like to see it be renewed for a second season or, do you think it should be cancelled?
Yes please! This castle-format procedural surprised me and it worked well 🙂 It is nice to relax in front of this show and tune out the day – I found it pleasantly surprising after initially thinking “Oh No’s! Another Clone!”….
Please please please don’t cancel another t.v. show that I love. This is a great series I look forward to it weekly the chemistry is always leaves me wanting to watch more and the way it ended with Eddie being arrested I need to know how it ends. Again please don’t cancel.
My wife and I love the show. Great chemistry between the two main actors!! Basically a great Romantic comedy crime show!!!! Please don’t cancel, give it a a second season with a good spot and don’t preempt it for football or other unregular stoppages and see if ratings don’t go up substantially!
Please renew.i just love the show. I looked forward to every Thursday nite to watch it. Please do season 2.
I hope Take Two is renewed for next season! The cast is very appealing, the stories are good and it’s got just the right touch of humor. There aren’t many shows with such a great balance of components, so I hope ABC gives it a chance to grab an audience and renews it. I think if this show is allowed to continue and given a good time slot, the audience will grow. Please don’t cancel it!
Great summer show enjoyed it very much looked forward to it on a Thursday night Chemistry is good between the leads interesting storylines Bring it back
I love this show so much. Please renew it for season 2..
please don’t cancel the series. My husband and I love it. Nice to watch a show that has humor in it and it’s got some good story lines.
I really like it please keep it going. I like the investigation plus the humor. It is not all heavy like swat and navy seals. I love the actors that went into them but it is way to heavy. I need some fun too.
We have enjoyed Take Two very much. We would really like to see it renewed for a 2nd season. It is smart, funny, sexy. Just what we like. Great chemistry between Sam and Eddie. Please, please renew this show.
My husband and I really liked this show. Please bring it back for a decent chance. Remember Major Crimes? It started the same, and ended up with a respectable following for several seasons. 96% of people who watched enjoyed it. That should tell you that better exposure would bring a bigger audience.
Really, really like this show. Very entertaining, it keeps me involved and I tend to forget about the day. It seems all the shows I like get cancelled, I do hope this one comes back, it is one of the good ones. I always look forward to watching TAKE TWO. Keep it Going
Yes this is a good show; entertaining, well acted, well written and I would love a second season.
I love this program plus you have us hanging, eddie is charged with murder, I want an ending.stop being ABC always be cancelling.
I agree, what happens to Eddie?
YES a great summer season show, much better than reruns
