NBC Cancels Young Rock After Three Seasons

Young Rock won't be growing up on NBC, as they have canceled the show after three seasons. It was the longest-running of NBC's five sitcoms this season, a sign of just how diminished NBC's comedy department has become in recent years. The show was on the move this year, shifting from Tuesdays to Fridays, and thus saw a 36% drop to a 0.25 in the 18-49 demographic. With that decline, what was once NBC's great hope at a hit comedy after its debut in 2021 became the network's #4 comedy, and one of the lowest-rated comedies on broadcast TV as a whole. With a big-name star in Dwayne Johnson, the show was likely one of the more expensive NBC comedies to produce, and it didn't have nearly the ratings to justify continuing it. Johnson starred as himself in the series, with Adrian Groulx, Bradley Constant and Uli Latukefu playing the younger versions of him from various points in his young life. Joseph Lee Anderson, Stacey Leilua, Ana Tuisila and Randall Park also starred in the series, which aired its series finale on February 24, capping a 37-episode run. This is a correct prediction for The TV Ratings Guide.
