NBC’s Good Girls will continue to break bad: NBC has renewed the dark dramedy starring Christina Hendricks, Retta and Mae Whitman for Season 3, TVLine has learned.
Through the first six episodes of Season 2, Good Girls is averaging just over a 0.6 demo rating and 2.4 million weekly viewers, down sharply from its freshman run (which aired on Mondays) and ranking 10th and, well, last among NBC’s many dramas. With DVR playback factored in, those numbers grow to 1.2 and 4.2 million. (The series’ most recent episode, airing April 7, hit a four-week high in total audience.)
On the digital front, Good Girls has with each Season 2 episode broken its series record for best seven-day non-linear viewership, allowing the show to double its digital delivery this season versus last.
“We’re so excited to continue following the friendship and adventures of these three incredible women while also exploring relatable issues in both funny and surprising ways,” Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming at NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. “Congratulations to [executive producer] Jenna Bans, and our amazing writers, cast and crew who give these stories depth and humanity.”
In TVLine’s annual Keep or Cut? megapoll, Good Girls placed eight out of 29 bubble shows, narrowly beating out NBC’s Blindspot (but placing far behind Manifest, which came in at No. 3).
NBC previously renewed for 2019-20 The Blacklist, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the #OneChicago line-up, Ellen’s Game of Games, Law & Order: SVU, New Amsterdam, Superstore and Will & Grace.
TVLine’s 2019 Renewal Scorecard has been updated to reflect Good Girls‘ pickup.
You took the words right out of my mouth!
YES!!!! I was really worried about this show. Very underrated series, I hope more people discovers it.
I love Manny Montana. What a bad boy 😍
His voice is sexy
Yay! it’s a guilty pleasure, reminds me a lot of Desperate Housewives.
Really happy with this, this is one of my favorite shows atm. It reminds me quite a lot of Desperate Housewives, the same vibe if you know what I mean. This makes me real happy!
I am so excited! My husband and I love this show!!!! Finally, a network got something right!!
It’s worth mention that this show is a “Netflix Original” outside US and the streaming giant bought the rights before the show even premiered in the US.
Such a deserved renewal! The quality this season is outstanding! So happy!
Great! I really enjoy this show. I hope they bring it back in the fall so we don’t have to wait until next spring for more episodes.
Glad to hear it. This is a fun, relatable series with engaging characters that are well played by all the leads. (And who is the hottie that plays Rio?) He kills the character with ultra-cool swag that just won’t quit. The story keeps you coming back for more and begs the questions, “If that was me, what would I do?” every week. Keep the good stories coming. There’s plenty to pilfer from the headlines for material.
Manny Montana…check out “Graceland” if you haven’t. 👍
Manny Montana is Rio. I’m nervous now bc I liked seeing Beth and him hook up. But since she left him there to get shot. She’s screwed. ( since of course he’s still alive)😬
SUCH good news! It’s one of two shows my daughter and I both love to watch.
Yay! I would have hated for this show to be cancelled! It’s so good!
I am pleased, though a little worried since the storylines seem to be running toward a line in the sand this season, I do find it a little difficult to watch on Sundays, and I don’t remember having the issue on Mondays last year. Part of that was my own thing, but the Walking Dead sometimes ran a little over and I usually liked to watch through the first commercial break of Talking Dead. Now will be interesting because of GOT, not so much this week, but I think after next week, the episodes are all at least an hour and fifteen minutes long. And its Sunday, I try to start of the week well.
Yay!! I love the show but was getting nervous about renewal. The Mary Pat “M-A-S-H-I…” “R-W-A-N-D-A” scene had me dying! NBC needs to move this and World of Dance to another night pronto.
If this show can get renewed, then The Village can get renewed! The Village does well in L+3 and L+7 ratings!
So excited! This is an excellent show with a great cast and each episode is fantastic! My birthday is tomorrow so what a great birthday present for me!
Didn’t see that coming.
So glad for the renewal. What a guilty little pleasure! My only beef is that every time I see Dean, all I see is Shaggy from Scooby-Doo.
Lol. Me too. I can take him seriously.
Great way to start my weekend. Thank you, nbc!
Admittedly surprised. Good for NBC and GOOD GIRLS team! Let;s hope NBC can give this gem a little more love and push. And a better time slot. Seems out of place following a night of dance competition.
The fans have spoken. Thank you NBC for listening. Wonderful news for a great show.
YAY!!!! Really enjoying S2 so far and I love the cast! Especially Manny Montana…..dude is FINE!!😜😜 I remembered him from the show Graceland.
Yeah, he is. I probably wouldn’t want to be around his character in real life but he is so attractive on GOOD GIRLS ❤️
Fantastic news! I’m loving Season 2 so far
