That's solid. I'm glad. It's not as good as I hoped for, considering it's a major movie star in the main role, but it's higher than 'Dying Up Here'. So if more seasons were planned, we're safe. It will be interesting to see if ratings go up, down or pretty much stay the same in the coming weeks. Overall the audience reviews were good to very good, but certainly not great. I always think it's kinda silly judging on series based on one episode only, though.

Thans for sharing these.

Those numbers aren't impressive, though. Which is a shame. On the other hand: Few days ago I was reading this Flemish articles about ratings and how live ratings are less and less important. These days a large number of people are recording shows on their digibox and watching everything at once when the final episode is out. Also 'on demand' numbers are increasing around that time. Times have changed. I'm guilty of that too.

Saw the numbers for last Sunday. Bit up, not enough. This show just isn't doing that well, unfortunately. It hurts my heart, cause I really think it's good. Very good. Considering it's such a big star in the main role, this should be way up. Luckily ShowTime isn't that dependable of adds, so there's a good chance more will come.

Down again. The lowest so far. All we can do is enjoying it for the time it's around, I guess.

A -29,18% drop once again. Only 0.199 M viewers.

It hurts me to see this happening and I don't like to say this, but these numbers are not just mediocre, they are bad. Unfortunately. To me, this feels like something that would be a hit on Netflix. ShowTime just ain't working for Kidding.

Yea, we are lower than some of the episodes for "I'm Dying Up Here". Really not good. :?

How do you read the contract Jim has with Showtime grinchy steve?

"Now, after 20 years, he signs a five years deal to be back on TV to play the character of Mr. Pickles on Kidding."

In my opinion
I believe many people want to see the show
For me it's the access
I don't want to join Showtime or Netflix
Sign your life away almost
Its too complicated
People want easier Access
Reasonable cost
And not to have to join anything to get that

It's a fact that he signed a contract for five years, but it's nowhere confirmed that it's for Kidding only. (unless I'm mistaken?) Not that we know of. I'm quite sure that, as often is the case, it will be included he plays the character for five years as long as the show is a succes. But also that they can cancel when it's not. That contract can include his work as a producer, or maybe a comic special. It's all a wild guess, but common.

Maybe he had to let go 'Dying Up Here' to get 'Kidding'? Maybe he gets to keep'Kidding' if he does other things too for the network. All possible.

The "good" news is that ShowTime is less dependable on live-ratings. For example 'The Crazy aones' was considered a flop for Robin Williams. But those numbers were way, waaaay higher. So, it all depends what network it is on. For ShowTime, this might be enough to go through.

@veysel. Thanks for sharing, just saw it too. :) Good news. And proof ratings aren't everything on ShowTime. Great they extended the chance for audiences to pick up on this. The second season will be crucial.

I think the main reason why Showtime picked up Kidding for another season is because they believe more people will discover the show in this hiatus, based on the strong critical response and recommendations from friends, family etc.

Down again. The lowest again and again. 166,000 viewers for episode 6. I can not imagine it getting even lower.

It's a good thing that they have more than a million viewers (not live) through other channels. That's what I meant with 'times changed'. Apparently people do watch it, just not live. Cause those numbers are just terrible. Good thing live ratings aren't that important for ShowTime, so it seems. Otherwise 'Kidding' would have been cancelled already.

Gone r the days when people would adjust their schedule to fit the show
Now they make the show adjust to their schedule
Eg Sunday night movie or show is seen monday or tuesday
Depending on their schedule, they tape it or know when reruns r on
Media is back under the control of the public, as it should be
I watch what i want and if i dont have access, I wait until i do.
Thats one good way to learn patience
