Summary and plot

Blunt Talk is an American sitcom television show that follows the life of a British newscaster who moved to Los Angeles with the hopes of conquering the American nightly cable news. The show debuted on Starz on August 22, 2015, with the second season launched on October 2, 2016. Created by Jonathan Ames, and executive produced by Ames, Seth MacFarlane, Stephanie Davis and Tristram Shapeero, Blunt Talk hails from Media Rights Capital and Fuzzy Door Productions.

This comedy series stars Walter Blunt (Patrick Stewart) as a British TV journalist who is determined to preach proper living to the American public despite his disastrous personal life. In a classic case of a powerful man behaving badly, the series features Blunt’s recent move to L.A. with his alcoholic manservant, and the baggage of several failed marriages. In season 1 viewers are introduced to Blunt as he publicly declines into the abyss of drunk driving, consuming marijuana edibles and picking up a prostitute. The second season starts off with Walter rekindling his romance with an old flame when she comes back into town in order to examine a deep-rooted conspiracy around a very poignant environmental threat in LA.

Viewership, reviews and chances of renewal

Blunt Talk has received mixed reviews from critics and audiences — scoring a mere 53% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and a decent 75% on Rotten Tomatoes. Led by Patrick Stewart, famous for his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation and the X-Men franchise, the all-star cast also features Jacki Weaver of Silver Linings Playbook, and Adrian Scarborough from the award-winning movie The King’s Speech.

Starz has decided to renew Blunt Talk for a second season in spite of the first ten episodes being rather disappointing ratings-wise. Not only were the numbers low, they also followed a steady downward trend throughout the freshman season, declining from 446,000 to 161,000 viewers. The network, however, apparently had faith in the British lead actor Patrick Stewart, who earned a Golden Globe nomination for his performance. The second chapter picked up right where the first one left off, at 160,000 viewers, and declined again to 95,000 by the third week. It is unclear whether a third season of Blunt Talk will be commissioned, so stay tuned, and we will inform you when Starz makes any announcements.
