Description: This show stars Brandon Micheal Hall in a humorous, uplifting drama about Miles Finer, an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down when he receives a friend request on social media from God and unwittingly becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him. After repeated pokes by God, Miles’ curiosity takes over, and he accepts the ultimate friend request and follows the signs to Cara Bloom, an online journalist. Brought together by the “God Account,” the two find themselves investigating God’s friend suggestions and inadvertently helping others in need. Miles is set on getting to the bottom of what he believes is an elaborate hoax, but in the meantime he’ll play along and, in the process, change his life forever. CBS.com

Status: This feel-good show’s numbers in the 18-49 demo are just passable, but it continues to rank in the Top 25 based on total viewers each week. It fits in well with the CBS brand and I consider it more likely than not to return for a second year, but we will see how it tracks in the second half of the season with no boost from NFL games.
