Last season the 9 p.m. telecast of "Trial & Error" averaged a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.5 million viewers overall in "live plus seven day" ratings from Nielsen Media Research and the 9:30 episode averaged a 1.1 in 18-49 and 4.4 million viewers. The series delivered a strong upscale audience, indexing at a 119 at 9 p.m. and a 121 at 9:30 among adults 18-49 in $100K+ homes (with 100 representing an average concentration of those viewers).

The first season of "Trial & Error" is now available exclusively on the NBC App and Video on Demand.

Critics were fans of the first season, with Vulture writing, "Deconstructing and poking fun at true crime is a great idea, and 'Trial & Error'... has some real fun with that." Entertainment Weekly added, "The true-crime genre was due for a good zinging. It got one."

In the spirit of true crime documentaries, the second season of this outrageous fish-out-of-water comedy centers on bright-eyed New York lawyer Josh Segal (Nicholas D'Agosto), still relatively a newcomer in a tiny southern town, who is sturdily posed for his next big case there. His mission? To defend the eccentric first lady of East Peck, Lavinia Peck-Foster (Kristin Chenoweth), known for her flamboyant outfits, large hats and hairless cat, and who suddenly finds herself accused of the bizarre murder of her beloved husband. As Josh continues to settle into his makeshift office behind a taxidermy shop while working with his quirky team of local misfits, he suspects that winning his second big case this time should be easy (especially when his client is the town favorite), but is it?

The cast also includes Jayma Mays, Sherri Shepherd, Steven Boyer and Amanda Payton.

Chenoweth is known for her commanding presence on both stage and screen. As a Broadway star, Chenoweth received a Tony for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her performance in "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown." She was also nominated for both her iconic original role as Glinda THE GOOD WITCH in "Wicked" and for playing Lily Garland/Mildred Plotka in "On the Twentieth Century."

On television, Chenoweth earned an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for "Pushing Daisies" and received a nomination for her guest-starring role in "Glee." She was also nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award as part of the ensemble for the Emmy-winning drama series "The West Wing."
