We were sure in renewal. First, the Pilot has gained enough audience. The show's premiere has garnered almost seven million viewers (6.957) with a 2.10 key demo among adults 18-49. These figures, for instance, are higher than those of American Housewife (6.61/1.9), the show, which has got a second season on ABC. So, already this indicator plays in favor of renewal. But let's now take a look at the response from critics and viewers.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the first season of Splitting Up Together holds a score of 5.83/10 and a 40% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have evaluated the current installment of the sitcom at 4.5/5/81%. We oversee almost the same picture on Metacritic, 54/100 and 7.0/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. An overall score of Splitting Up Together on IMDb looks average as well, 6.6/10 > 300 votes.
Summing up, Splitting Up Together is another average sitcom on ABC. The target audience mainly positively met the show; the critics have expressed their ambivalent opinion regarding the sitcom; the television ratings were entirely acceptable. As a result, we were inclined to believe that ABC is about to renew Splitting Up Together for Season 2.
