The current season of Grown-ish has garnered 0.950 million viewers with a 0.40 key demo (P18-49) during its debut. The next episodes were closer to the mark of one million viewers, excepting just the third one. As mentioned over, we found these results a bit insufficient. However, it seems that it was enough for Freeform to greenlit the show for a next installment. We hope that Season 2 of Grown-ish will showcase more impressive figures.
As for reception by critics and viewers, it was mostly positive. On Rotten Tomatoes, Grown-ish has a score of 7.5/10 with a 91% approval rating among critics. Meanwhile, the viewers have evaluated the first season of the sitcom at 3.6/5/72%. According to Metacritic, the picture is almost the same. Grown-ish scored at 71/10 and 6.1/10 by critics/viewers, respectively. An overall score of the show on IMDb is 6.5/10 > 700 votes. Thus, generally speaking, these figures look more impressive compared to those of television ratings.
Given the fact that Freeform is ABC's sister network, we assume that the national broadcaster carefully picks the shows for its current lineup. As a result, Grown-ish is likely a long-term project of Freeform. In any case, we observe the positive trend in the statistics of Grown-ish. Summing up, Grown-ish has proven itself as a Freeform's new hit. This show has the impressive response from the target audience, pretty satisfactory television ratings, as well as a gradually growing fan base. Therefore, we expect more seasons of Grown-ish in the future. Who knows, maybe Grown-ish will manage to bring the same amount of viewers to Freeform like its elder brother, Black-ish, on ABC. We hope it will.
