Undateable: Season One Ratings

1 August 2014 1:40 AM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

NBC ordered the Undateable TV series over a year ago but it's taken them this long to air it -- despite the fact that their Thursday schedule had poor ratings all season. That certainly doesn't sound like a vote of confidence for this new comedy. Will it be quietly cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned!

Undateable follows a group of single friends who are trying to figure out the fine art of relationships. The cast includes Chris D'Elia, Brent Morin, Ron Funches, Rick Glassman, David Fynn, and Bianca Kajlich.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see »

Undateable: Season Two Renewal for NBC Sitcom

1 August 2014 1:31 AM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

NBC has renewed their low-rated summer sitcom Undateable for a second season. Executive producer Bill Lawrence tweeted the news and wrote, "Overexcited to do 2nd season of a Undateable on NBC. #pickedup."

Undateable follows a group of single friends who are trying to figure out the fine art of relationships. The cast includes Chris D'Elia, Brent Morin, Ron Funches, Rick Glassman, David Fynn, and Bianca Kajlich.

The series debuted in late May to a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.84 million viewers. The ratings declined over the course of the season, falling as low as a 0.6 demo rating with 2.24 million. The season averaged a 0.9 rating with 2.78 million.

While those numbers certainly aren't good, they aren't bad if you consider the series aired during the summer -- and how poorly NBC's regular comedy series performed during the »

NBC renews 'Undateable' for a second season

31 July 2014 8:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It turns out that being held for late May and then burnt off at a rate of two episodes per week wasn't a kiss of death for "Undateable." The multi-cam comedy has been renewed for a second season with the news breaking, as it so often seems to, via Twitter on Thursday (July 31) evening, starting with star Chris D'Elia, followed by executive producer Bill Lawrence, whose optimism for the future of "Undateable" never waned. NBC confirmed the tweets and, indeed, "Undateable" will be back on NBC at some point in the future. The Season 2 order is for 10 episodes. When I interviewed Lawrence and creator Adam Sztykiel in the spring, Lawrence explained that optimism, which seemed somewhat irrational at the time. "I think NBC's gonna win the summer because they're gonna try and win the year and I think they've got a shot right now," Lawrence explained. "And the bar is so low, »

TV show description:

This comedy series revolves around a group of friends who are close to finding a relationship but aren't quite there yet. Whether it's due to a lack of style, the wrong job or even just a bad haircut, everyone goes through a time in their lives when they're undateable.

'Undateable' Q&A: Brent Morin

29 May 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

NBC's new comedy "Undateable" debuts on NBC on Thursday night, introducing primetime audiences to a host of fresh comedy faces.

In the sitcom, actor/stand-up comedian Brent Morin (in his first series TV role) dons khakis and button up shirts (and occasionally, bicycle shorts) to play Justin, a bar owner, with some personal dating quirks. He quickly becomes roommates with Chris D'Elia's leather-jacket wearing Danny, a man who has no trouble getting ladies, but a lot of trouble keeping them.

With Justin comes his group of friends - Shelly (Ron Funches), Burski (Rick Glassman) and Brett (David Fynn) - ...

Interview: Bill Lawrence and Adam Sztykiel on 'Undateable' and The State of TV Comedy

29 May 2014 1:21 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I interviewed "Undateable" executive producer Bill Lawrence and Adam Sztykiel at a noisy bar in Pasadena shortly before a press conference in mid-April. Going back and transcribing the 35-minute interview is bittersweet. At the time, Lawrence had two shows in limbo -- TBS' "Cougar Town" and Fox's newly premiered "Surviving Jack," which he EPed along with creators Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker. While Lawrence wasn't directly involved with "Enlisted," he has a close relationship with "Enlisted" and "Cougar Town" creator Kevin Biegel, whose comedy was newly shelved. Since that time, "Enlisted" and "Surviving Jack" were both cancelled. "Cougar Town" was renewed for a final season on TBS. At the time, Lawrence also wasn't feeling especially confident about "Undateable." The multi-cam sitcom, which features Chris D'Elia as seemingly cocksure ladies man Danny, who mentors the less confident Justin (Brent Morin) and his group of allegedly "undateable" friends. "Undateable" had been »

Review: NBC's 'Undateable' starts off clumsy, but gets better

28 May 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Bill Lawrence is among the smartest producers in TV comedy today, but even smart people make mistakes — sometimes, the same mistakes. Five years ago, Lawrence (who had previously created "Spin City" and "Scrubs") gave us "Cougar Town," a sitcom with an awful title and an awful premise to match. No one much wanted to watch Courteney Cox work her way through a series of interchangeable hot guys in their 20s, and by the middle of the first season, Lawrence and Kevin Biegel had dropped the idea in favor of one that was much lower-concept, but also much more entertaining: just let the very funny people in the cast be funny together. By that point, the title and the memory of those early episodes had proven too big a barrier for (re)entry for many viewers, but "Cougar Town" has been one of TV's better comedies for most of its run, »

'Undateable,' 'Crossbones' and 'Night Shift' get NBC summer premieres

26 March 2014 3:27 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For 10 months, they've been pictures on the side of milk cartons, but...  "Crossbones" lives! "Undateable" lives! "The Night Shift" lives! NBC announced six scripted additions to its already busy summer slate on Wednesday (March 26) and if you were looking for premiere dates for all of the mysteriously vanished shows the network unveiled last May, we've found them! In all, NBC will be airing six original scripted shows this summer, the most for any broadcast network in more than 20 years, so NBC says. [By my count, ABC's summer schedule will include five original scripted shows.] Once again: Never say that there's nothing to watch on TV in the summer. On to those premieres... [Note that NBC previously announced premiere dates for "Last Comic Standing" (Thursday, May 22), "American Ninja Warrior" (Monday, May 26) and "America's Got Talent" (Tuesday, May 27).] Up first on the scripted front is "The Night Shift," airing Tuesdays at 10 p.m. starting on May 27, when it'll likely get a solid bump from the "Agt" premiere. Eoin Macken stars as a renegade doctor working the late »
