Leading into today’s big finale, why not go ahead and break down the subject of a possible Making It season 3? Is there a chance at it happening?
Before we do or say too much else, let’s just go ahead and make some of the following news clear: We’re more than a little bit eager to get more of this show. It’s lighthearted, creative, and it offers up so much good stuff for viewers of all audiences. It’s the sort of show that should exist for years and years on end … but probably won’t, because this isn’t a nice world and we don’t often get a whole lot of nice things.
For the time being, the ratings for Making It season 2 don’t do all that much to make us think that there is going to be a season 3. The Nick Offerman – Amy Poehler reality show is bringing in so far a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and then also around 2.5 million live viewers an episode. These are down substantially from the ratings from the first season back in 2018.
So why are the numbers down so much? One of the biggest reasons for it has to do with the timeslot. This is a show that was thrown onto an abbreviated two-week schedule and had to find a way to survive airing after different shows. While a binge-watching model may work for a streaming service like Netflix, it’s not confirmed to be anywhere near as successful for a broadcast network like NBC. There are a lot of different challenges that can come its way airing in this sort of environment, especially since it’s the holidays and this is a family-friendly show airing fairly late at night.
If there is one reason to be hopeful for the future, it’s this — Making It is probably pretty cheap insofar as a production goes. The contestants do most of their work in one room and really, you’re just paying the hosts, the judges, the crew, and then whatever supplies are necessarily.
One way or another, we have a feeling that we’ll learn about Making It season 3 before we get around to the end of May.
