NBC is moving forward with a second season of Ted Danson comedy “Mr. Mayor”. The single-camera half hour follows Neil Bremer (Danson), a retired and wealthy businessman who runs for mayor of Los Angeles for all of the wrong reasons — just to prove that he’s “still got it.” Once he wins, Neil has to figure out what he stands for and gain the respect of his staff and his biggest critic and political rival, Arpi Meskimen (Holly Hunter). At the same time, he also wants to connect with his rebellious teenage daughter, Orly (Kyla Kenedy).

“Mr. Mayor” also features Vella Lovell, Mike Cabellon, Kyla Kenedy, and Bobby Moynihan. Airing on Thursday nights, the nine episode freshman season of “Mr. Mayor” averaged 3.42 million viewers and a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49.
