One may have thought that a hysteria devoted to Trump's election came to an end. We'd like to declare that actually not. Showtime released in February their brand new adult animated sitcom called Our Cartoon President. Without a doubt, this show is doubtful and controversial. Of course, some people support the new POTUS, while the others not. Nonetheless, Showtime is apparently willing to explore new horizons. Naturally, the politic satire sitcom has received mixed reviews. But what Showtime thinks about the future of their freshmen "masterpiece?" Whether there will be a second season of Our Cartoon President on Showtime? Let's try to figure out.
As mentioned above, the response from critics and viewers was entirely controversial. Honestly, nothing is surprising in such reception when it touches politics. On the other hand, the reaction of the target audience is one of the crucial factors able to affect the decision on renewal or cancellation of any series. As expected, the figures were average or even low. On Rotten Tomatoes, the first season of Our Cartoon President has a score of 5.17/10 and a 32% approval rating among critics, while the viewers have evaluated the current installment of the adult animated sitcom at 2.2/5/35%. We observe a bit better picture on Metacritic, 42/100 and 4.1/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. On IMDb, Our Cartoon President holds a score of 5.1/10 ~ 800 votes. Since we are entirely apolitical, we won't comment these figures. Let's better take a look at another significant indicator. We are talking now about the television ratings.
Generally speaking, Showtime must be satisfied with such statistics. The pilot episode of Our Cartoon President titled "State of the Union" has garnered 0.439 million viewers with a 0.12 key demo (P18-49). Meanwhile, a sophomore episode titled "Disaster Response" has drawn 0.417 million viewers. Not a bad result for such a kind of show, isn't it? We regard these figures very strong, given the fact that the pilot episode of The Affair, for instance, has gathered just a bit more than half a million viewers. Taking such comparison into account, we dare to assume that Showtime is about to pick up Our Cartoon President for Season 2.
Summing up, despite the mixed review and provocative type of the show, Our Cartoon President has a good chance for a new season on Showtime. Such conclusion follows from the pretty satisfactory television ratings of the animated series. If this defiant show manages to keep such steady ratings within the entire first season, without a doubt, Showtime will have to renew Our Cartoon President for a next round. We just need to wait for a while until the official announcement by the cable network. Were we wrong or right in our forecast?; we will see.
Our Cartoon President SummaryIf you have not yet watched this provocative adult animated sitcom on Showtime, please read a brief overview of Our Cartoon President below.
This political satire show follows the everyday life of the 45th president of the United States. The story focuses on Donald J. Trump, his wife, Melania Trump, his family, as well as what "exactly" happens inside the White House. The animated series, in particular, reveals how the POTUS deal with his advisors, cope with world troubles and lift the veil in his personal life.
As For The Likely Release Date For Season 2As mentioned above, Our Cartoon President showcased steady dynamics in the ratings this season. Therefore, despite the mixed review and controversial concept, we don't rule out that Showtime is about to renew Our Cartoon President for Season 2. Showtime has yet to announce their decision on the subject. However, in the case of renewal, we tend to believe that Our Cartoon President could return for the next in February of 2019, according to the current schedule of the series.
But, please, bear in mind, all the data presented above is just our forecast and speculation on the subject. We are looking forward to the official report by Showtime.
