Despite a holdup that kept fans of NBC’s ‘The Carmichael Show’ (Loretta Devine, David Alan Grier) on edge about its fate, this weekend brought with it official news the show will be bringing the laughs for at least one more season.
Get the details inside:
‘In a renewal that came down to the wire, NBC has ordered a third season of Jerrod Carmichael’s multi-camera family comedy. Season 3 will number 13 total episodes.
While the ratings weren’t massive, the show did grow its audience in season 2, averaging 5.4 million viewers per episode and a 1.3 rating in the 18–49 demographic (including DVR playback). Carmichael emerged as last summer’s surprise network comedy success, and has since reinforced its status as a buzzy, critical darling while earning raves from a man who knows his provocative family comedies, All in The Family creator Norman Lear.’
Congratz to the cast!
