‘Marlon’ Season 2 Premieres To Low Ratings

Published: Thursday 21st Jun 2018 by Rashad

Despite a commendable start at the onset of its inaugural season (click here to read more), the return of NBC’s ‘Marlon’ (which aired June 14) is appearing to be starting on a different track.

Before its episodes 3 and 4 aired tonight, reports began surfacing the show – starring ‘A Haunted House’ stars Marlon Wayans and Essence Atkins – came back to notably lower ratings  (less than half) than its season 1 premiere last August.

Details inside:





“The Marlon Wayans-led comedy series aired two episodes back-to-back on Thursday [June 14] night. The first episode averaged a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 3 million viewers. The second episode drew a 0.6 and 2.4 million. For comparison, the series premiere drew a 1.3 and 5.3 million viewers and a second episode the same night drew a 1.0 and 4 million. The Season 2 premiere also fell short of the Season 1 Live+Same Day average of a 1.0 and 4.3 million viewers.

In fairness, “America’s Got Talent” led in to “Marlon” during its first season, while last night its lead in was a steady “Little Big Shots” (0.8, 5.7 million). A repeat of “Law & Order: SVU” followed at 10.”

    It’s really not funny. And essence Atkins was never a good actress. Marlon is just not funny. ANd the kids casted just aren’t right. His best friend is corny. The best friend (female) is the only funny one. Forgot her name.
