What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the CBS television network, The Great Indoors features adventure reporter Jack Gordon (Joel McHale), who is reassigned to a stifling desk job, when founder Roland (Stephen Fry) converts the Outdoor Limits magazine to a web-only publication. Now the desk-bound boss of the digital department, the outdoorsy Jack is surrounded by Millennials, who mostly experience life via smartphone. Jack resolves to show these kids there is a big, wide world out there. The cast also includes Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Susannah Fielding, Chris Williams, Christine Ko, and Shaun Brown.
Season One Ratings
Overall, The Great Indoors has performed okay in the ratings for CBS. It’s also had the advantage of having The Big Bang Theory as a lead-in for most of its first season. In that timeslot, it should have done better than it has. When the network’s moved it to a different timeslot, the numbers have seen a dramatic drop. Though it may be renewed for a second season, I suspect the network will cancel The Great Indoors instead.
5/13 update: CBS has cancelled The Great Indoors after one season. Details here.
