Viewer reception, ratings and prospects of renewal
The series has garnered much viewer praise for its heart-warming family-oriented humor and storyline, good acting and simple premise. Baby Daddy is a light-hearted comedy that doesn`t take on any deep issues, but provides an opportunity for an easy laugh and relaxation. The premiere episode of the series averaged 620,000 viewers in L+SD, and 1.095 million in L+7, showing a 77% increase in delayed viewership. The ratings have been more or less steady in the course of the series` run, and they seem to be high enough for the show to remain on Freeform`s renewal slate. Whether or not the series will actually be renewed for the sixth season is still unclear, so we will monitor the network announcements and keep you informed.
