NBC will not be bringing back midseason comedy Crowded starring Carrie Preston and Patrick Warburton. After so-so ratings in the preview behind The Voice (1.8, 1.4) for two back-to-back episodes, the multi-camera comedy has had a quiet run on Sunday, most recently logging a 0.7 Live+Same Day adults 18-49 rating for the last two airings.
On Crowded, created by Suzanne Martin, Mike (Warburton) and Martina Moore (Preston) are finally reclaiming their wild side after 20 years of parenting. Their plans go awry when both of their two grown daughters — Shea (Miranda Cosgrove) and Stella (Mia Serafino) — and Mike’s parents, Bob (Stacy Keach) and Alice (Carlease Burke), unexpectedly move back in to the house.
Because of her commitment to Crowded, Preston was not able to reprise her Emmy-winning role on The Good Wife for a major arc in the last string of episodes of the CBS drama as its creators had envisioned.
