Bradley Whitford is a talented guy but hasn’t had much luck with TV series since The West Wing. Will Trophy Wife be a different story? Will the sitcom make it to season two or will it be cancelled instead? We shall see.
Trophy Wife revolves around a former partygirl (Malin Åkerman) who becomes the third wife of an older man (Whitford) and becomes part of a large family that includes three step-kids and two ex-wives. Marcia Gay Harden, Michaela Watkins, Natalie Morales, Ryan Lee, Bailee Madison, and Albert Tsai round out the cast.

Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available.
