TBS just delivered good news to three of its comedies.
“Wrecked,” “People Of Earth,” and “The Guest Book” have all been renewed for new seasons.
“Wrecked” and “People Of Earth” will be returning for third seasons; “The Guest Book” will be back for a second frame.
TBS had already issued renewals to fellow comedies “Angie Tribeca” and “The Detour.”
“Since rebranding this network just two years ago, we have renewed 100% of our scripted originals, which have all generated impressive audience growth in an environment that’s seeing mostly declines,” said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. “Our shows are connecting with fans and we’re going to keep making these genuinely funny comedies with the best creators in this business.”
While none is a smash hit, “Wrecked,” “People Of Earth,” and “The Guest Book” all deliver respectable live+same-day ratings in today’s ratings-starved climate.
They, moreover, receive big lifts from time-delayed and non-linear viewership.
Per TBS, season two of “Wrecked” averaged 3.6 million multi-platform viewers per episode on a live+7 basis. “People Of Earth” is averaging 2.7 million per episode, while “The Guest Book” is reaching 3.5 million per installment.
