The Good Place




Status: Active, Airing 3rd Season Renewed for 4th Season
Timeslot: Thursdays 8:30 PM EST
Premiere: September 27, 2018
Network: NBC
Starring: Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, Jameela Jamil, William Jackson Harper
Series Website: www.nbc.com/the-good-place

Description: From Executive Producer Michael Schur (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Parks and Recreation” and “Master of None”) comes a smart, unique new comedy about what makes a good person. The show follows Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell, “House of Lies,” “Veronica Mars”), an ordinary woman who enters the afterlife and, thanks to some kind of error, is sent to the Good Place instead of the Bad Place, which is definitely where she belongs. While hiding in plain sight from Michael (Ted Danson, “CSI,” “Cheers”), the wise architect of the Good Place (who doesn’t know he’s made a mistake), she’s determined to shed her old way of living and discover the awesome (or, at least, the pretty good) person within. NBC.com

Status: As expected, this show has been renewed for a fourth season.  Its numbers have been down from its second season average, but it is still doing well enough for an NBC show on highly competitive Thursday nights and it sees decent gains in delayed viewing.
