Description: People of Earth is a new original comedy about a support group for alien abductees. The show centers on skeptical journalist Ozzie Graham (Wyatt Cenac), who investigates a support group to write about the members’ supposed alien encounters. The more he digs into their oddball claims, the more he realizes there is truth in their stories and possibly even signs that point to his own alien abduction. The onetime outsider now finds himself a part of this eclectic group of misfits, all the while struggling with the idea of knowing that life could exist beyond our world.

Status: (Updated 11/23/16) This show improved nicely for the week, apparently benefiting from a stronger lead-in from American Dad, or perhaps just more people are tuning in. I have not tracked the TBS shows too closely because it has not had any genre entries among its originals up to this point, so its hard to gauge its status at the moment. But for a sitcom on cable, these numbers may be good enough.
