CBS has handed a full season order to their freshman comedy series, Ghosts.
The new series premiered on October 7 and has become the No. 1 most-watched new comedy this season. It’s two-episode premiere had the largest lift in L+7 of all new and returning comedy premieres thus far this season and the show received more than 5.5 million total live viewers on premiere night but added more than 2.2 million viewers in L+7, bringing total viewers to 7.76 million. Its third episode, airing on Oct. 14 only saw a small dip in total live viewers, receiving almost 5.3 million.
Ghosts is based on the BBC comedy of the same name and follows a young couple (played by Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar) who inherit a country estate and decide to move into it to fix it up to become a bed and breakfast. While there, she has an accident that allows her to see the many deceased residents who are still tethered to the home. The titular ghosts are played by Danielle Pinnock, Brandon Scott Jones, Sheila Carrasco, Richie Moriarty, Devon Chandler Long, Asher Grodman, Román Zaragoza and Rebecca Wisocky.
Ghosts follows ordered full seasons of new dramas FBI: Internationa and “NCIS: Hawai’i for the 2021-22 television season. All three come from CBS as they have been the only network so far to hand out full season orders for any of their new series.
As a fan of the British series (which is streaming on HBO Max) I really wanted to love the American remake. But the show is like someone telling a funny joke you heard before badly. The joke fall flat and the two leads are better than the material being handed to them. Hopefully the American version gets better.
