CBS has revived first-year breakthrough Ghosts for a second season, as well as The Neighborhood and Bob Hearts Abishola for a Monday block.
Next season, Ghosts, The Neighborhood, and Bob Hearts Abishola will join Young Sheldon, which is in the first year of a three-season deal, on CBS’ schedule.
The four series, led by Young Sheldon, are the most viewed comedies on TV this season.
Ghosts, based on a British series of the same name, has done well for CBS from the start, averaging 8.06 million viewers per episode with a week of delayed viewing, trailing only Young Sheldon’s 9.18 million viewers this season among comedies. Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar star in the comedy produced by CBS Studios, Lionsgate Television, and BBC Studios in Los Angeles. The showrunners are Port and Wiseman.
Ghosts is the third freshman series to receive a renewal for 2022-23, joining NBC’s La Brea and CBS’ CSI: Vegas.
The Neighborhood, which is in its fourth season, and Bob Hearts Abishola, which is in its third, both have an average of 6.6 million viewers each episode. This places them third and fourth among comedies this season.
The Neighborhood hired Meg DeLoatch as showrunner for season four after creator Jim Reynolds left the program following criticism of his leadership. CBS Studios produces the show, which stars Cedric the Entertainer and Max Greenfield.
The Warner Bros. Bob Hearts Abishola is produced by TV and Chuck Lorre Productions. Lorre and Al Higgins executive produce, with co-creator and cast member Gina Yashere as co-EP.
