FOX has yet to renew Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 5, but star Andy Samberg is optimistic that the show will return for the 2017-18 season, and isn’t worried by its live ratings, per THR:
“I feel like the way TV shows are measured has changed a lot in the last five, six years. There’s so much more expansion in terms of streaming and DVR and International. From the way that it’s explained to me, we are doing an actual really good overall number in terms of how many people on this Earth see our show each episode by the time it’s done running through all the different systems.”
“There’s very few comedies, especially, left, and very few dramas too,” he says, “anything that’s not event TV on networks that’s getting massive ratings at this point.
I feel like we’re right in there with all the other shows that I like. I don’t want to speak on behalf of the network, of course, but certainly the overnight ratings, they don’t matter to me that much, I can tell you that.”
Riot-averted? Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 5 or cancelled soon? Stay tuned…
