It's worth noting that Corporate was a success during its first season, and has drawn a vast amount of viewers during its premiere. According to the official report, the pilot episode has garnered 0.404 million viewers with a 0.21 key demo (P18-49). That's an impressive result for any show on a cable network. The series started off with two back-to-back episodes. As a result, a sophomore episode has attracted the same amount of viewers.
We expected that Comedy Central is about to pick up Corporate for another installment. Our assumption was based on the viewership of the series. For instance, the second season's premiere of Another Period has drawn the same viewing audience. Another show on CC, which premiered with the same figures is Detroiters (0.447 million viewers, 0.23 key demo). In the meantime, Comedy Central has already renewed Detroiters for a second season, set to premiere in 2018.
However, the more notable was a response from critics and viewers. The first season of Corporate has a score of 8.0/10 and an 80% approval rating among critics, while the viewers have evaluated this workplace sitcom at 3.8/5/68%, according to Rotten Tomatoes. On Metacritic, the response from critics looks quite impressive as well. The premiere of Corporate has a score of 75/100 and 5.3/10 among critics/viewers, respectively. On IMDb, the show's rating looks quite strong, 7.0/10. Thus, in general, we considered the debut of this original scripted series as more than impressive.
Summing up, we evaluated the odds of Corporate to return for Season 2 on CC as very high. This show has received the universal acclaim among critics and viewers; the television ratings were similar to other shows on CC that had been renewed for another season. Corporate seemed to be the show intended to expand the CC's original programming slate. As a result, we have been almost confident that Corporate Season 2 will happen on Comedy Central.
