TBS' THE LAST O.G. Does Good With the Network's Largest 'Pro-Social' Campaign for a Scripted SeriesTBS' THE LAST O.G. Does Good With the Network's Largest 'Pro-Social' Campaign for a Scripted Series
by BWW News Desk - Jul 2, 2018

The Last O.G. continues to be a breakout success since the series' debut on the #1 comedy network that set a new record as cable's biggest comedy premiere since 2015. Additionally, the network's newest original became 2018's #1 cable comedy show among all cable comedies this year, reaching a multiplatform audience of more than 42 million viewers across TBS' linear, digital, mobile and on-demand platforms. In the backdrop of both its audience and critical acclaim and ongoing ratings success, the network also quietly won big with The Last O.G., by pioneering a new direct-to-consumer marketing model with 'social good' driven initiatives. The innovative campaign, initially kicked off in November 2017, spanned the entire on-air run of the series and 'gave back' directly to local communities, while setting another record as TBS' biggest 'pro-social' marketing campaign for a scripted series.
