Renew The Grinder For Season 2 on Netflix
25 October 2016 | by renewthegrinderSee all my reviews

Please sign my petition to renew The Grinder for Season 2 on Netflix. Even Rob Lowe tweeted about this petition. Deb, Lizzie, Zadack and Kristen Schaal also liked the petition on Twitter. It's a very funny show that makes me laugh out loud. Some people think this show is cheesy but the cheesiness is why the show is funny. It's supposed to be cheesy the way William Devane always supports Dean over Stu. Todd is hilarious how he idolizes The Grinder. My favorite part was when Dean was interviewing to be The Grinder and he thought the full name of the character was Mitchard. The link is on my Twitter page that directs you to Change.org :
