Congratulations to comedians Christian Finnegan and Sherrod Small today, as they're guaranteed steady work for a while as TBS made it official and ordered the 90-episode pick-up on their TBS series, Are We There Yet?
The series debuted this summer with a 10-episode trial run, averaging 2.8 million viewers, 1.5 million in adults aged 18-49. TBS noted it also was the top-ranked show on all of TV in the second-quarter with African-American adults in the 18-34 and 18-49 demos.
You may know the show as starring Terry Crews, or co-starring the movie's star Ice Cube as a recurring guest, but Christian Finnegan is a regular cast member playing the best friend of Crews' character, and Sherrod Small is a writer who also plays a guest character. So perhaps this is their Best Week Ever? Groan if you must, but congrats to them both.
From the press release today: “Are We There Yet? has proven itself to be an extremely strong addition to TBS’s comedy lineup,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies. “Are We There Yet? attracts a young, diverse audience, making it an especially good fit for our Wednesday night slate of original sitcoms.”
