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.
Blunt Talk is a new comedy that stars Walter Blunt (played by Patrick Stewart) as a British TV journalist who is determined to preach proper living to the American public despite his disastrous personal life.

Written and created by Jonathan Ames, Blunt Talk has received mixed reviews from critics and audiences — scoring a mere 53% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Led by 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.
Produced by Media Rights Capital and Fuzzy Door Productions, and executive produced by funnyman Seth MacFarlane, the show’s 20 episodes are set to air over two seasons. However, Starz has not yet officially announced a release date for season 2.

Not only were the numbers low, they also followed a steady downward trend throughout the freshman season.
