Fans of FX’s low-rated You’re the Worst TV show have something to be happy about. The cable channel sitcom has been renewed for a second season of 13 episodes.
It will be moving to sister channel FXX for its sophomore run — a new cable channel where shows typically get low ratings.
A dark comedy, You’re the Worst takes a modern look at love and happiness — as told through the eyes of two people (Chris Geere and Aya Cash) who haven’t been very successful with either. Desmin Borges and Kether Donohue play their friends.
The TV series debuted in mid-July to a small audience of 765,000 viewers. The second episode dropped 20% and the third installment fell even lower. Viewership leveled off to about half a million.
Though the ratings weren’t impressive, You’re the Worst has some devout and vocal fans. That enthusiasm may have played a role in getting the show renewed.
Sister series Married has also been renewed but that show will stay on FX.
What do you think? Do you like the You’re the Worst sitcom? Are you glad that it’s been renewed or do you think it should have been cancelled instead?
