    I need a second season of Taxi Brooklyn. I hope NBC makes it happen.

  2. The Goldbergs did very well for its repeats and it actually anchored the night. I think this is going to do so well on ABC Comedy Wednesday!

    I do hope Taxi Brooklyn gets renewed. With 3 new shows renewed already is it safe to say that NBC won the Summer ?

  4. John NYC says:

    Taxi Brooklyn is another tightly structured short season show, these densely packed are close to really spoiling me for the bloated by filler episodes’ “regular” season fare.

    Some are, of course, uneven, Royal pains has it’s swings for me anyway, but when they hit they hit big.

  5. Pati says:

    omg I’ve never seen the show but based on the previews of taxi Brooklyn it looks so stupid, how is this a show, the premise is ridiculous and its actually getting viewers.

    • Lizo says:

      It’s not a good show by any means, but it’s fun…and the ridiculous premise kinda works for them. I don’t get too tied up in the logic of it.

    I really hope Taxi Brooklyn gets renewed. It’s been a fun summer series and I’m rather attached to these silly characters. Haha.
