Storyline and production info

Bull is a new US television dramedy series that debuted on CBS on September 20, 2016. Phil McGraw and Paul Attanasio create and executive produce the show, with Jay McGraw, Justin Favley, Darryl Frank, Mark Goffman, Steven Spielberg and Rodrigo Garcia all aboard the exec producing team. Ambin Television, Atelier Paul Attanasio, Stage 29 Productions and CBS Television are behind the production of the show.

The series is inspired by the early career years of Dr. Phil McGraw and centers on the life of Dr. Jason Bull, who is a psychologist who specializes in jury consulting and is a founder of Trial Analysis Corporation. It stars NCIS alum Michael Weatherly, whose performance is praised almost unanimously. The team of his colleagues includes Bull’s brother-in-law Benny, neurolinguistics expert Marissa, ex-detective Danny, computer hacker Cable and Chunk, the clients’ imagemaker for the trial.

Mixed reviews, reasonable viewership and the future of the show

The show opened with solid ratings of 15.56 million viewers, losing 2 million viewers by the following week. Bull has received largely negative reviews from the critical community, bashed for the utilization of stereotypical tropes already overused in legal shows. It has a 24% score on Rotten Tomatoes and 6.4/10 on IMDb, with rather mediocre reviews. While the numbers are not hopeless, the ratings are consistently low, so the prospects of Bull returning are ambiguous at this point. It would be best to monitor the ratings dynamics throughout the freshman season, and perhaps as it progresses, its chances of renewal will become more clear. Stay tuned and we will inform you when CBS makes a decision on the fate of Bull.
