No Season 2 for the workplace comedy.
May 13, 2017
Word is out that The Great Indoors has been cancelled by CBS after just one season. The Joel McHale comedy premiered in the fall, airing a full 22-episode season. While its ratings were decent on Thursday nights, it did lose a good portion of its lead-in audience.
The writing was on the wall when the show was the only freshman comedy on the network not to receive a Season 2 renewal back in March.
The Great Indoors followed an outdoor adventure reporter who spent a good portion of his life exploring all the world has to offer, until a new desk job assignment in the digital department of his magazine gives him an unexpected culture shock.

I loved this show. Day drinking and the stories that led up to the meetings with Roland and Jack were always funny. The last one was about a mudslide. I really wanted to learn more about the Brooke from the past. It was always funny listening to Jack describe his friendship with his bisexual buddy Mason. Would Clark ultimately prefer Soupergirl to Emma? Would Brooke recognize that her fiance was not what she really needs for the long term? Jack already recognized his attraction to Brooke and decided to get out of the picture for her sake. Roland's new wife (Batman) I'll miss this one.

And here I thought Joel McHale hand landed his dream job: Making fun of millennials ;)

This show had such promise. I really looked forward to seeing the clash between the millennial generation's skewed take on life and Jack's more realistic one.
However....the acting was soooo bad this dynamic never had a chance. The script wasn't bad, the writer's had the generational "clash" down, but the delivery from the cast just was flat.
When looking for the reason why a show bombs, look no farther than the cast. A show with a good cast will give a weak script a bump up, but a weak cast will bottom out a good script. It was such a disappointment. This concept had promise.

I love Joel and really wanted to love this show but I could only muster a weak "like". The jokes were redundant and the cast of characters clichÃ©d. Oh wells.

Joel McHale deserves so much more.

Also I'm with Anthony, I really hope this ends up with The Soup getting revived in some way. I've been missing it more and more lately.

Nooooo I loved this one. Well I love Joel McHale but I thought the show was good overall too. It took a few episodes for it to get good but after 3 or 4 I was hooked. Really disappointed over here :(

.. I just hope Christine Ko lands something else. I could not possibly care less about the rest of the cast (especially McHale).
