“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” is one of our favorite shows, and we celebrate The CW’s decision to renew Rachel Bloom’s show for a third season despite the fact that it is broadcast’s lowest-rated program.
The CW Mark Pedowitz told the Television Critics Association winter tour that the renewal had “nothing to do with numbers,” and stressed that Crazy has helped “alter the perception of what The CW has become.”
When you have great critical work on a critically acclaimed nominated show like Crazy, it deserves to be picked up. Critically acclaimed, great programming — sometimes you just leave it on the air and hopefully it finds an audience. I’m hoping that happens and if it doesn’t, I’ll have no regrets about renewing the series.
Pedowitz added that positive buzz from shows like Crazy and the recently renewed Jane the Virgin has helped “re-energize the network.”
