Basic info and storyline

The Real O'Neals is a brand new US sitcom television series that premiered on ABC on March 2, 2016. It is based on the idea by Dan Savage, created by Joshua Stermin and Jennifer Ventimilla, and produced by Windsor and Johnson Productions, di Bonaventura Television and ABC Studios. On October 11, 2016 ABC launched the sophomore installment of The Real O'Neals.

The show chronicles the life of a conservative Catholic family in Chicago. The Real O'Neals focuses on how the family bonds are affected by revelation of personal secrets. The family is a traditional and a close-knit one, and when their young son comes out as a gay man, it's not a very easy idea for the family members to digest. Everyone else also has issues that are revealed over the course of the series, and the way this family deals with some very poignant questions that life presents is very realistic and heart-warming. The second season kicks off with Kenny starting an LGBT club at school, Eileen finally agreeing to a real date with Clive out of jealousy.

Controversy, ratings and renewal potential

The Real O'Neals raised some controversy for its depiction of the Catholic church when religious conservatives protested against the series, so the ABC network was forced to make some adjustments and steered the plot more towards the crazy-family comedy style. The sitcom originally got off to a solid start, with 6.3 million viewers watching the series premiere, but suffered an almost 30% loss in viewership by the season one finale. The current season premiered even lower, drawing just 3.76 million fans. Unlike the first installment, which premiered at mid-season, the second season of The Real O'Neals is a significant part of ABC's fall 2016 lineup. It is the final part of the Tuesday night comedy block, preceded by The Middle, American Housewife and Fresh Off The Boat. The comedy series is still a strong candidate for renewal, so we are keeping an ear out for a network announcement.

I really hope this isn't cancelled. I love the characters and the subjects. I hope these networks remember also that the secular community is larger than the catholic. Even so, the catholics I know (grew up in that hideous religion) all seem to love this show.
