NBC Summer Sitcom The Carmichael Show to Return for 2nd Season; Teri Hatcher Joins The Odd Couple

The Carmichael Show

NBC has renewed its critically acclaimed and hit summer comedy The Carmichael Show for a second season. Starring Jerrod Carmichael, David Alan Grier, Loretta Devine, Amber Stevens West and Lil Rel Howery, The Carmichael Show is inspired by Jerrod's relationship with his say-anything contrarian father, his therapist-in-training girlfriend, his ever-hustling brother and his mother who is always, always, always right with Jesus. The series hit its stride by focusing on hot-button issues that are part of the current national dialogue, including religion, gun control and race relations. The 9 p.m. ET edition of The Carmichael Show was the most-watched summer comedy on the Big 4 networks in eight years and tied for the #1 summer comedy over that span in adult 18-49 rating, averaging a 1.1 rating, 4 share in 18-49 and 4.7 million viewers overall in "live plus same day" averages from Nielsen Media Research. In total viewers, the 9 p.m. Carmichael was the top summer comedy on ABC, CBS, NBC since 2007.


Teri Hatcher

Actress Teri Hatcher is set to guest star on CBS's The Odd Couple in a multiple-episode arc during its upcoming second season. She will play Charlotte, a smart, successful single mother who lives in Oscar Madison's (Matthew Perry) building. They meet when Oscar starts dating her nanny, but he soon realizes he's really interested in Charlotte. Hatcher has delivered memorable performances in film and television since 1990, including her portrayal of Susan Mayer on Desperate Housewives, which earned Hatcher a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award, and as Lois Lane on the series Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. Her film credits include The Big Picture, Soapdish, Spy Kids, Tomorrow Never Dies and Coraline.
