Summary and plot
Produced by Maverick TV and All3Media America, Chrisley Knows Best is an American reality television series that follows the life of a wealthy patriarchal businessman and his family living in Atlanta, Georgia. Chrisley Knows Best Season 4 is comprised of 12 half-hour episodes and premiered on March 8, 2016 on the USA Netwrk.
Todd Chrisley is a self-made man – millionaire and father of five children, he runs his family just like he runs his business – with an iron fist. He is a true patriarch, overbearing to a degree, micromanaging every move made by the members of his family and ensuring that his decision is always heard and followed. Their hot tempers make the Chrisleys butt heads pretty often, but they obviously have true love and respect for each other in the end. With wife Julie by his side as his best friend and business partner, Todd and his family are a perfect team, though not missing the drama which all families have. Among other issues, the current season will portray Julie and Todd dealing with the empty nest syndrome, as some of their children are moving out of the house.
Reviews, ratings and renewal expectations
This is a real-life family comedy-drama that became USA Network’s youngest-skewing. Its third season broke the series ratings records with 2.5 million viewers per episode, and season four continues to deliver good numbers. Scoring 4.7 on IMDb, Chrisley and his family may not be the entertainment for everyone, but they definitely have their loyal audience. Thus it would hardly surprise anyone if the series were picked up for the next season. Stay tuned and we will let you know as soon as a decision is made on the series` future.
Season 4 recap
The 12-episode 4th season of popular reality series Chrisley Knows Best has bowed out on June 14th, 2016 on USA. The season finale has wrapped up another heart-warming chapter of the Chrisley chronicles with a dose of extra sweetness. The filming of the last episode of the season, “Todd Goes Country”, coincided with Julie Chrisley`s birthday, and Todd has written a song for her, in addition to planning a surprise party (which is almost impossible to keep a secret with the excited children already in the know). And of course, the disaster strikes – Todd has got a bad cold that threatens his heart-felt gift to his wife. The last episode did well ratings-wise, with 1.271 million viewers and a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which is actually lower than the previous several installments` ratings which scored a 0.6 rating and closer to 1.5 million viewers. However, the fourth season ratings are on par with the previous season`s, and the self-made millionaire`s tight-knit family may very well be back with a fifth season. No renewal announcements have been made yet for Chrisley Knows Best, so please stay tuned and we`ll make sure that you won`t miss any relevant information.
