  1. Curiously absent from the PR release was the 0.24 million viewers of the latest episode.

    It’s terrible. It’s a flop (it also lost about 50% of its premiere audience in 4 episodes!!) but it’s a Max Landis project, so of course BBC America must renew…

    Imagine all the good shows that cold have been produced with all those second seasons of blatant flops.
