The first season of The Good Place TV show on NBC was a top-five TV series in terms of its 18-49 demo ratings and a top ten show where total audience size is concerned. In the second season, can this comedy continue to deliver more Heaven-sent numbers for the Peacock Network? Will The Good Place be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
An NBC sitcom, The Good Place stars Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto, and D’Arcy Carden. The series centers on the thoughtless Eleanor Shellstrop (Bell). After death, Eleanor mistakenly ends up in The Good Place — instead of The Bad Place — where she truly belongs. With the help of her soulmate, Chidi (William Jackson Harper), she tries to find the good (or at least decent) person within. Meanwhile, they must keep her secret from Good Place architect Michael (Ted Danson). In season two, everything is up in the air, after the events of the first season’s “world-upending” finale.
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.
