It is being reported that NBC has lowered the episode count for Season 2 of About A Boy to 20, down from its original order of 22. While only a slight adjustment down, the timing of the move could be telling as it comes a day after the comedy fell to a series low rating in the Adults 18-49 demographic.

With the show nine episodes into its second season, the network still has time to watch how viewership fares over the coming months before deciding its fate - so long as its numbers don't continue to slide.
