The series has been a ratings hit for ABC, averaging 3.9 million total viewers, ranking it fourth among the network’s comedies. It ties The Conners in top ratings with a 0.9 demo including Live+7 numbers, which account for live airings and non-broadcast viewings.

Something about needing supplies? Anywho, I could use your help getting them (Janine) off my back. If you’re interested in supporting them and our community of young mind shapers, please visit”
