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.

I would have kept the great indoors, I enjoyed the show. Very funny and entertaining!
The Great Indoors had a great premise and cast with reasonably good writing. We needed to care more about the characters, and I think the show was going that direction when it was cancelled. I would have long ago cancelled 2 Broke Girls. I would not have renewed Kevin Can Wait–not a likeable character or that good a show. I like Sherlock Holmes, but never really liked Elementary–can’t believe that has lasted.
I agree I’m sad to see it go. It was really funny and the charachters were sometimes spot on in the differences between generations. Sad to see it go
