TV "What Just Happened??!" Season 2 Seems Unlikely

Season 2 of Fred Savage Talker "What Just Happened??!" Unlikely, but Fox’s Alternative Comedy Push Continues
by Nellie Andreeva
August 9, 2019



Amid a sea of reality series on the Big 4 networks this summer, Fox tried something different with "What Just Happened??!", an aftershow parody hosted by Fred Savage.

The series — a blend of a real talk-show and a scripted comedy set around a fake aftershow for a fictional sci-fi drama based on a series of books that don’t exist — has barely registered in the linear Nielsen ratings, averaging paltry 680,000 viewers and a 0.2 adults 18-49 rating in Live+Same Day on Sundays.




The network has not made an official renewal decision, but the writing seems to be on the wall.

Obviously the ratings were not as high as we’d hoped, so I think a second season is challenging,” Fox Entertainment President Michael Thorn told Deadline at TCA.

Still, “the project was a really fun experiment for us,” he said. “While it didn’t break through in the ratings, it has been a great calling card for us in the comedy community where many creators and comedians have told us: ‘I can’t believe you tried that show, that’s amazing. Can I be on it if it’s on again?'




Added Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier, “For us, especially if we’re going to be a home for talent, I think it was a win on a lot of levels. I’m proud of it.
