What May Cause The Great Indoors to be a Hit?
The Great Indoors will likely get a lot of people checking it out, as it airs after CBS's highest-rated show, The Big Bang Theory. The huge hit comedy will provide a nice lead-in for The Great Indoors.
On-brand for CBS
Not only is The Great Indoors a multi-camera comedy, which is what does best on CBS, but also its premise of an outdoors-y guy having to deal with a bunch of millennials is a premise that seems like it should be appealing to CBS's typical older audience.
What May Cause The Great Indoors to be a Miss for CBS?
Less trailer views than the Monday night comedies
The trailer-watching article tells us that the trailer views for The Great Indoors are below those of Man with a Plan and Kevin Can Wait. It seems that people may be interested in the show, or they may not know it exists.
Trailer not well liked
Additionally, those who saw the trailer weren't impressed. Its 61 like/dislike ratio has it tied with Lethal Weapon for the second least liked trailer, only behind MacGyver. Again, that information can be found here.
The Good Place could be a hit
The Great Indoors will be airing up against another new comedy, and that one gets a five-week head start. We don't know how well The Good Place will perform, but it could potentially draw viewers away from The Great Indoors.
What to Expect for The Great Indoors?
I think that the positive factors will have a great effect on the show, and that it will be successful, as I think that the large lead-in covers for the trailer views and being on-brand covers up for trailer reception, considering the age of CBS's audience.
Which factors do you think will be most in play in causing The Great Indoors to be a hit or a miss? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
