What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the CBS television network, the United States of Al TV show stars Adhir Kalyan, Parker Young, Elizabeth Alderfer, Dean Norris, Kelli Goss, and Farrah Mackenzie with Brian Thomas Smith, Rachel Bay Jones, and Azita Ghanizada recurring. The story revolves around the friendship between two men who’ve been through war together. Riley (Young) is a Marine combat veteran who is struggling to readjust to civilian life in Ohio. Awalmir aka “Al” (Kalyan) is the Interpreter who served with Riley’s unit in Afghanistan. After a long struggle to get him a visa to travel to the United States, Riley welcomes Al as he arrives to start a new life. They are supported by Art (Norris), Riley’s veteran father; Riley’s sister, Lizzie (Alderfer); Vanessa (Goss), Riley’s ex-wife; and Hazel (Mackenzie), Riley and Vanessa’s daughter.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of United States of Al averaged a 0.47 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.92 million viewers in the live+same day ratings (includes all DVR playback through 3:00 AM). Compared to season one, that’s down by 6% in the demo and up by 5% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. Though other economic factors are involved, the higher-rated shows usually get renewed and the lower-rated ones get cancelled. Find out how United States of Al stacks up against other CBS TV shows.

Will CBS cancel or renew United States of Al for season three? Despite following CBS’ top-rated sitcom, this show was only a middle-of-the-road performer for the network in its first year. The show’s been consistent this time around so I think that will be enough to land it a renewal. I’ll update this page with breaking developments.

Thursday night was the best night for us with the three comedies. Now we have lost two smart ones and have ghosts( unwatchable !!) and yet another crime involved show. Not happy!
No way! Why?
United States of Al was an amazing show. I looked forward to watching it every week. It was funny, poignant and down right entertaining. I hope another network picks it up. What a big mistake cancelling this show !!!!
Very disappointed of the cancellation.
