TBS has renewed three of its existing summer shows: WRECKED, THE GUEST BOOK and PEOPLE OF EARTH. The network’s summer series join TBS’ previous 2017 renewals, including the dysfunctional family comedy THE DETOUR and police procedural spoof ANGIE TRIBECA.
THE GUEST BOOK is currently averaging 3.5 million viewers per episode across TBS platforms, and is currently the #1 new cable comedy this year. All of the network’s returning series have shown ratings growth season over season. Among today’s renewals, PEOPLE OF EARTH brought in 2.7 million multiplatform viewers per episode, up 22% over season one (P18-34) in linear Live + 7, and WRECKED attracted 3.6 million multiplatform viewers per episode, up 7% over last season (P18-34) in linear Live + 7.
“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.”
