About the series
Life in Pieces is an American sitcom that is the result of creative collaboration between Kapital Entertainment, 40 or 50 hours, Inc. and 20th Century Fox Television. Created by Justin Adler and executive produced by Adler, Aaron Kaplan, Jeff Morton and Jason Winer, the show the series debuted on CBS on September 2, 2015, and the second season followed on October 27, 2016.
Life in Pieces portrays a Los Angeles-based extended multigenerational family facing a variety of typical daily realities. The single-camera comedy series follows the lives of the Short family, with each branch of the family telling its own version of the events over the course of each episode. With the simple premise “One big family. Four short stories.” CBS hopes to position the show as its own version of ABC’s Modern Family.
Current season, ratings and renewal chances
The new comedy series was launched last September with an impressive audience of over 11 million viewers, and although the ratings dipped starting with a second episode to just below 9 million, they were able to stay at that level, bringing the average viewership for the debut season to around 8.9 million. Fan reviews are mixed, but leaning towards positive nonetheless, landing the show a reasonable, but less than stellar 62% on Rotten Tomatoes, and a stronger IMDb score of 7.6/10. Praise is going out to the actors, the scriptwriters, the pacing, while there is some criticism for the formulaic approach and a certain crassness. CBS and 20th Century Fox have had some disagreements but apparently managed to overcome them, which allowed to keep the popular series on the air. The second season opened with a far less optimistic 5.96 million viewers, but managed to increase its viewership to 6.65 million by the fourth episode. It’s still too early to tell whether CBS will commission Life in Pieces season 3, but even considering the decline in ratings a renewal seems likely.
