The new comedy failed to secure a back order.
November 8, 2018
Today NBC announced a scheduling shuffle for the new year with tweaks coming to its Thursday night lineup. As a result, new comedy I Feel Bad looks to be the first casualty of the 2018-2019 season, with the network stating that the series will conclude its run in December.
While NBC is officially leaving the show's future up in the air for now, the lack of a back order of episodes cannot be viewed as a good sign. Combine that with the fact that the series has struggled to find an audience - ranking as the lowest-rated comedy on the network - the prospect of a second season appears extremely unlikely.
I Feel Bad follows Emet, who does her best to be the perfect mother, wife, friend, boss, and daughter. But just like the rest of us, she's figuring it all out as she goes. But that's okay because to have it all, you can't possibly do it flawlessly.
Moving forward into the new year, Superstore will be on hiatus for two months, with new series The Titan Games premiering on January 3 in the 8:00pm time slot. A week later on January 10, Brooklyn Nine-Nine will kick off its sixth season at 9:00pm, with The Good Place following at 9:30pm to finish off its last three episodes of the season. Will & Grace will then move to 9:30pm beginning January 31.
