CBS extends the dramedy's debut outing.
October 19, 2018
It looks like God Friended Me will be sticking around for a full season, as CBS has ordered more episodes towards its freshman run. The exact size of the top-up is not confirmed, but reports peg it at around seven, which would bring its total to 20.
The hour-long series premiered in late September and is off to a solid start. Through its first three episodes, ratings have improved its time slot performance compared to a year ago. Early reviews have been overall mixed, though lean towards the positive.
God Friended Me follows New York podcast host Miles Finer, who is an outspoken atheist. When he randomly receives a friend request from God on Facebook, it starts him down the path of becoming an agent of change in the lives and destinies of people around him.
Terrible over acting.

(I loved Kevin Probably... but it was a lot more similar to Joan of Arcadia then this show. I'll take Jason Ritter anywhere he shows up. )
This show is similar. Sort of like the show "Person of Interest", where 'The Machine' generates a random number for a person to be protected or saved but with a twist.
Our world is so messed up that having a show that actually helps give one hope without blood, guns, explosions and death takes some real deep screenwriting.
My life is very similar to the plot, except in my real life, I feel as though God's plan for me is to enter into a person(s) life in need of something I have to get them through their current issue. Then move on to the next.
Keep it renewed and refreshing....
But I was completely surprised. What makes this show are the characters and especially the actors they got to play them. This is one of the most appealing casts I've seen in a long while.
There's a tendency for the plots to be a little too bit sugar-coated. It could easily spin out of control. Just a few episodes in and we're already dealing with the "will they or won't they" question between the two main characters, with obstacles already put in their path. But so far it's been a pleasant diversion and I look forward to each episode.
