NBC Cancels ‘Mr. Robinson,’ Renews ‘Carmichael Show’

NBC has cancelled Craig Robinson’s “Mr. Robinson” and renewed fellow freshman comedy “The Carmichael Show” for a second season.

Both shows debuted this summer with six episodes.

Mr. Robinson” was developed in 2013 by Universal Television and underwent recastings and a move from single- to multi-camera. Showrunners Mark and Robb Cullen took over the series from “The Office’s” Owen Ellickson and Greg Daniels. It joins NBC’s fellow cancelled summer comedy “Welcome to Sweden.”

“Carmichael,” a Universal and 20th Century Fox Television co-production, is based on comedian Jerrod Carmichael’s real-life relationships. Unlike “Mr. Robinson,” the series has enjoyed critical support and strong ratings. “Carmichael’s” premiere was the most-watched summer comedy on broadcast in eight years, drawing 4.8 million total viewers, and tied for the No. 1 summer comedy over that span among viewers in the 18-49 demographic.

Carmichael, Nick Stoller, A24’s Ravi Nandan and Danielle Sanchez-Witzel exec produce the multi-camera series, which also stars David Alan Grier, Loretta Devine, Amber Stevens West and Lil Rel Howery.

“We’re extremely proud of ‘The Carmichael Show’ and Jerrod’s voice and point of view is a breath of fresh air in a comedy series,” said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke. “This show made a big impact with viewers and critics because it’s funny and relatable, but also because it’s fearless about discussing issues that are significant in the world today.”
