Viewer reception and chances of renewal
The critics and viewers are mostly disappointed in Talia in the Kitchen. The series has a 4.3 rating on IMDb, indicating a lower than average response. Reviewers point out the lack of originality in the plot, a terrible sense of humor and bland characters. The viewership numbers have been very low in the first half of the season, partly due to very little advertisement on the network`s part. Is it a miss for Nickelodeon or will the audience warm up to the lead character`s charm, positive attitude and willingness to overcome all of the challenges on her way to success? This still remains to be seen, the second half of the season has just begun and anything may happen, but the network hasn`t made an official statement on the future of the series.
