MTV has quietly shipped their Unemployed sitcom off to Saturday nights, an evening when their target audience is likely out doing other things. Is this a bad sign for the show’s future?
Underemployed follows the lives and relationships of a group of young people whose lives haven’t worked out as they’d hoped. The cast includes Diego Boneta, Inbar Lavi, Jared Kusnitz, Michelle Ang, Sarah Habel, and Charlie Weber.
The sitcom has been under-performing in the ratings and this season has been averaging just a 0.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 490,000 viewers. Last week’s episode hit a new series low with just 340,000 viewers. (You can check out the week-by-week ratings.)
For comparison’s sake, the last season of Teen Wolf averaged a 0.7 rating and 1.69 million viewers.
The Inbetweeners, another MTV sitcom, only fell as low as 530,000 viewers and that show was cancelled last week.
So yeah, it looks like Underemployed is doomed to be cancelled. On the positive side, there are five episodes left.
What do you think? Do you think that Underemployed should be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Is it a better show than the ratings indicate?
SEASON 2 PLEASE
I would love a second season! I loved this show.
Season 2 please! 🙁
Loved this show. Season 2 please!
I recently found out about the series and I love it! It’s funny, realistic and just different than all these other shows and I like a lot that it doesn’t tell me when I have to laugh. (These laughter’s in the background that other shows play are so extremely annoying).
I couldn’t stop watching. Please make a second season!
I only knew about this show recently. After watching the first episode i was hooked… Finished the whole season in one day… PLEASE MAKE A SEASON 2!! The plot is really good. Not only is it realistic but it really does involve and show many topics and issues in our society (especially in our generation) at present! So yes another season is extremely wanted 🙂
I really loved the show “underemployed” it can relate to a lot of young adults who have and are going through the same situations. Trust me, I have been there too. This show has the perfect amount of comedy, drama and romance. Please renew this TV series and give it a chance.
Love underemployed. Renew it. Make season 2
