The 70s-set comedy scores more episodes.
November 7, 2018
ABC had some good news for freshman series The Kids Are Alright today. The network has extended the comedy's first season by a reported nine episodes, which brings its total to 22.
The sitcom was a latecomer to the 2018-2019 season, premiering in mid-October. Currently three weeks into its run, the show has performed well on Tuesday nights in its post-The Conners time slot at 8:30pm. Averaging a 1.3 overnight rating among adults 18-49, it ranks as one of the top new comdies this fall.
The Kids Are Alright follows a traditional 1970s working-class Irish-Catholic family. Parents Mike and Peggy are raising eight boys who spend most of their days with little to no supervision. With a total of 10 people under one roof sharing three bedrooms and one bathroom, it ends up being everyone for themselves.

The hippie culture was not "over by 71". Cultural trends are not that definitive. It lasted well into the mid 70s. "Party culture" started being a thing around 73/75 and it COEXISTED with the hippie culture for a year or so....

great show , but the hippie culure technically was over by 1971 , it was replaced by the party culture, few would have claimed hippiedom after 71. it only lasted from 67 through 71. acid rock also died in 70 to be replaced by prog rock and metal.

I am really enjoying this Show. It is very well written and with the way networks cancel things so quickly without giving them a chance, I am so happy to see this got picked up for a full season.

Very well written and acted. The filter on camera lens to give an authentic early 70s look is genius. Mary McCormack is my fav! Will def keep watching.

So far, so good. Wonder if they'll get into the "hippie" culture more.....
