The McCarthys revolves around sports-crazed family from Boston. Athletically-challenged and gay son Ronny (Tyler Ritter) plans to finally move away to start his own life. Those plans are thrown into turmoil when his basketball coach dad (Jack McGee) offers him a job as assistant coach — much to the dismay of Ronny’s siblings. The sitcom also stars Laurie Metcalf, Jimmy Dunn, Joey McIntyre, and Kelen Coleman.
While two more episodes is good news for fans of the series, the show is still very likely to be cancelled by spring. It’s currently averaging a 1.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.53 million viewers. The McCarthys is the network’s lowest-rated sitcom by far and has numbers well below those of The Millers — a sophomore sitcom that was recently cancelled and dropped.
What do you think? Do you like The McCarthys sitcom? Do you think the ratings will improve enough for the show to be renewed for a second season?
