Despite attracting poor ratings, CBS has ordered two more episodes of The McCarthys. This brings the first season tally to 15 installments.
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?
I REALLY, REALLY LUVED thos shpw,I just CANT beleve they CANCELLED IT!!!!!!! THAT MAKES ME SOO SAD!!!!!
They really didn’t give the show a chance. I wished they’d bring it back and let us the viewers decide. I truly lived it. We shall see
Go figure, I found a new favourite sitcom
the McCartheys and they pull it. So sad for the cast, you guys were rocking it! Sure wish more than us handful of good-taste people knew a good show when we saw one. This show should have gone the distance. Very sad about this. Laughter is healing. There goes some great therapy. Hope the cast is offered some spectacular roles to replace the show being canned. :(‘
I love the McCarthys it has a great cast very funny!
Please give The Mc Carthy’s another try. CBS never gives a show a chance to develop. I love this show. Don’t cancel it. Thanks so much.
Thought the show was stupid and should be dropped
I really enjoyed The McCarthy’s, and hope CBS sticks with the show for awhile longer
please put The McCarthys back on. why does cbs take all the good sitcoms off the air. As you can see everyone is upset with the show being taking off.
