Kath & Kim

Recommended Posts

NBC's "Kath & Kim" has become the latest frosh skein to score a full-season pickup.


Peacock announced the back nine order Friday afternoon. Reveille and Universal Media Studios are behind the skein, which stars Molly Shannon and Selma Blair. "Kath & Kim" is based on the Australian laffer of the same name.

Peacock has aired four segs so far, averaging a 2.6 rating and 6 share among adults 18-49. Show has also averaged 6 million viewers. "Kath" has retained all of its "My Name is Earl" lead-in in those two measurements, and has built by 4 percent with adults 18-34.

In announcing the pickup, NBC Entertainment exec VP Teri Weinberg said the net has "incredible confidence" in the show's auspices and that NBC believes "it's a perfect fit with our Thursday night comedies."

"Kath & Kim" revolves around a self-absorbed, dim mother and daughter duo. John Michael Higgins and Mikey Day also star.

Michelle Nader exec produces, along with Rick McKenna and original creators Gina Riley and Jane Turner. Riley and Turner also starred in the Australian series.

Has anyone watched this? Doesn't seem like it has generated any excitement on this site even though it was nominated for a People's Choice. Admittedly, the Australian version rocked, but this does have some pluses. Got to love John Michael Higgins.
