Gotham Renewed for a Second Season

A few shows on FOX are getting renewed for new seasons a bit early and one of them is the hit show Gotham. The story of a city before its most famous vigilante was old enough to play the lotto is getting a second round, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

No Caption Provided

Gotham is currently averaging a 42 rating in adults 18-49 and taking in 10.6 million viewers. It's currently the season's number one broadcast drama among men 18-49. The series premiere was the highest-rated fall drama debut in 14 years for FOX.

It's pretty amazing to think that a show without Batman featuring a ton of characters that eventually come to know Batman would do this insanely well, but this is great news for people who have been invested in the adventures of Detective James Gordon.

Currently, fans are only halfway through the first season, so they can expect a lot more of the world of Gotham to fill their lives in 2015 and beyond. Episode 12 of the show "What The Little Bird Told Him" airs January 19th on FOX at 8/7C

What do you think of this news? What characters would you like to see in the second season of this show?

Wow. I didn't know that the ratings for the show were so good. I stopped watching after the first five or six episodes, but I'm glad that it is doing well as it can only bode well for additional comic related shows being produced.

That's a surprise. I guess I'll be tuning to Gotham sometime later. But the ratings may not suggest that it's entirely good. Look at the TV show Spartacus. That show had low ratings yet it had a good story.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Spartacus_episodes

Why the show had low ratings? Because it was probably due to graphic content and the viewers were turned off from it. But the show wasn't cancelled. It was a complete series detailing the historical facts of Spartacus.

Here Gotham has good ratings. Does it mean the story and the characters are that good? I'll have to find out myself and make a judgement.

True Blood is another show with pretty good ratings but the story wise and the characters went off the hook. I've watched it and the series didn't impress me. It had good concepts though. I mean, this is an HBO show we're talking about. HBO did better with Game of Thrones than True Blood. That's quite a laugh.

@dagmar_merrill: No I just felt that would be better then actually saying something generic like "I've lost faith in humanity" or something like that.

You see NBC this is what happens when you advertise something. Have a little faith and Constantine could do gang busters.

Exactly, most people didn't even know it was on last Friday. What's the point in spending money on a show you won't advertise?

Yup Flash and Arrow are also breaking records for CW so they really only have them self's to blame.

Absolutely this!

It goes to show that a show needs to be appealing to ALL viewers, not just the community here at Comicvine.

Excellent! A good show gets renewed for more episodes. More time to expand on already interesting characters and stories. It's popular because it keeps a lot of people interested, entertained and coming back for more.

So what does this announcement have to do with Constantine? Not a F@!%ing thing. If Constantine gets cancelled it doesn't mean that it's a terrible show. There's plenty of other factors at play and sometimes a show just comes out are the wrong time.

I Love Gotham, It shows just how much of of a cesspool Gotham is, and why Batman was really needed. And how hard it is to be a good cop is such a corrupt city.

Great show, glad it got renewed. Don't know why some people think it sucks, but cannot argue about taste.

I personally enjoy this show because it isn't all flash. It's about the characters over being about the super antics. Aside from Barbara this show is solid. I mean it could be better, but what show couldn't be.

Constantine is good as well. =)
