for summer forever for NBC’s Mr. Robinson.
The Peacock net has pulled the plug on funnyman Craig Robinson’s sitcom about a substitute teacher with dreams of music stardom, TVLine had confirmed.
At the same time, the network has ordered a second season of The Carmichael Show, which, like Mr. Robinson, aired its freshman season as part of NBC’s summer 2015 lineup.
TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard has been updated to reflect the news.
Mr. Robinson ended its six-episode run in August with back-to-back installments that drew 4.2 million total viewers and a 1.0 rating, followed by 3.4 mil and a 0.9, hitting series lows on both counts.
A week later, The Carmichael Show — a family sitcom starring Jerrod Carmichael, Loretta Devine and David Alan Grier — premiered to 4.8 million total viewers — the most watched summer comedy debut since June 2007 — and a 1.1 rating, within a tenth in the demo of Mr. Robinson’s best-since-2009 summer comedy premiere number.
Carmichael ended its run last week with a double shot of 4.7 mil/1.0, 3.9 mil/0.9.
