In fact, the show's ratings were weak. The third season premiere of Baskets has garnered only 0.536 million viewers with a 0.19 demo rating among adults 18-49. The figures have decreased up to 0.307 million viewers by the end of the season. Generally speaking, it's low statistics even for such cable network as FX.
But if we take a look at the response from the target audience, this indicator looks favorable. On Rotten Tomatoes, the current installment of Baskets holds a score of 4.3/5 and a 86% approval rating from the viewers. Meanwhile, according to Metacritic, the target audience has evaluated the third season of the surreal comedy at 7.2/10. On IMDb, the show's score is also pretty high, 7.5/10 > 7,800 votes.
Honestly, we supposed that the dramedy Baskets had a foggy chance for another round on FX, especially, in the backdrop of the scandal against Louis C.K., the show's executive producer. However, Galifianakis possesses such an attractive magnificence that he apparently was able to convince FX to order one more season of his show.
