The Toy Box Renewed for Season 2

The Toy Box Renewed

ABC is saying “Game on!” to another season of The Toy Box.

The network has renewed the competition series, hosted by Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, for a second season, it was announced Thursday.

On the program, inventors and their toy concepts are put through a series of trials and tests before facing the panel of judges (aka no-nonsense, toy-loving kids).

The Toy Box premiered in April to 4.1 million total viewers and a 0.8 demo rating in the Friday lead-off spot. Through its seven-week run it averaged 2.9 mil and a 0.6 — down sharply from this TV season’s Last Man Standing/Dr. Ken average (5.4 mil/1.0), but surely at a fraction of the cost.
