For everyone out there who’s been watching and enjoying “Good Behavior” on TNT, here’s the good news: All of the story you’ve been watching is about to come to a head. Unfortunately, here is the bad news: It’s still not entirely clear if the upcoming season finale will also be a series finale.
The cable network still has not decided one way or another on a season 2 renewal, and based on the numbers so far, we’d say it’s still very much up in the air. This past episode matched the show’s recent average of a 0.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic, and improved on the total-viewer average with 831,000 people watching. (Note: These are just live+same day numbers; there are far more people watching after the fact when you add other figures in there.)
If there are some reasons for fans of the show to have hope, we do think that the odds were stacked against it this time. Not only did the show have some other competition, but it aired during a time in which the Presidential Election was dominating the news cycle. We do think that giving Michelle Dockery and company a second chance would be worthwhile just to see if some more viewers could be added to the mix.
We’ll have another ratings update as we wrap up the season with “All the Things” coming up in a matter of days — but there should even be an asterisk on the numbers for this one given that it will be presumably airing directly against a speech from President Obama.
Before we conclude, let’s offer you up a sense as to what is coming up in the finale, including how we are going to see Letty risk almost everything for the sake of trying to help Javier. The stakes haven’t ever been higher.
Synopsis – “Letty (Michelle Dockery) makes a devastating choice and once again has to clean up her own mess. But this time it’s to save Javier (Juan Diego Botto).”
The promo below gives you more of a sense of the danger and the surprises ahead; given the nature of this show, it wouldn’t be a shock at all if there was a cliffhanger coming…
