It’s a heavenly day for all the fans of HBO’s comedy series, “The Righteous Gemstones”. But wait… has HBO blessed the series with a second season or left it in the showbiz purgatory? Let’s dive in, shall we? 🏊♂️
Ever been to a mega-church? Well, if not, HBO got you covered with a hilarious portrayal of the Gemstone family – a bunch of televangelists with dad Dr. Eli Gemstone (played by the legendary John Goodman) at the helm. From building a religious empire to dealing with family drama, it’s a wild, holy rollercoaster ride! 🎢🙌
Did they manage to convert the masses? The first season pulled an average rating of 0.19 in the 18-49 demographic, with about 559,000 viewers. Compared to other HBO shows, where does it stand? Is that a yay or nay? 📊👀
While the number game is crucial, it ain’t all about digits. With big names like Danny McBride, Edi Patterson, and Walton Goggins, we’ve gotta ask – does star power play a role in the show’s fate? 💫
Now, drumroll, please… 🥁 HBO has answered the fandom’s prayers and renewed “The Righteous Gemstones” for a second season! Phew, right? But also, were we ever really in doubt, considering the talent attached?
One might wonder, how would the tides have turned if HBO decided to unplug this series? Would it have been a sin too big to forgive? 😇🔌
Real talk, though. TV show ratings, ups and downs, renewal chances… are these still the best way to judge a show’s worth in the age of binge-watching? 🤔
To end on a controversial note: Given the dynamics of the entertainment world and the cult-like following some shows develop, should fans have a say in renewals? Especially for shows that touch on societal issues? Sound off below! 🔥
Question to ponder: In the age of streaming and binge culture, how relevant are TV ratings today? 📺🔄
