NBC Wraps BEST FRIENDS FOREVER Tonight, 6/1
NBC has issued a return date for its hiatused comedy BEST FRIENDS FOREVER. The show's two remaining episodes will air back-to-back tonight, June 1 at 8:00/7:00c, network sources confirmed.
The newcomer previously aired on Wednesday nights at 8:30/7:30c but was replaced last week in favor of additional episodes of "Betty White's Off Their Rockers." The change turned out to be a good move for NBC as the "Rockers" episode on May 2 delivered 4.94 million viewers and a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 according to fast national data, up significantly from "Forever's" April 25 telecast (2.72 million viewers, 0.8 rating among adults 18-49).
While the network wouldn't confirm the ultimate fate of "Best Friends Forever," the aforementioned developments indicate a second season is highly unlikely. The series stars Jessica St. Clair (“Bridesmaids”) and Lennon Parham (“Accidentally on Purpose”) as Jessica and Lennon, best friends who live on opposite sides of the country with the men in their lives.
