The decision comes after both series aired two episodes from a six episode order on Wednesday nights leading out of America's Got Talent. While both series had fairly similar ratings, NBC opted to renew The Carmichael Show due to it's more positive reception in comparison to the negative reviews Mr Robinson received.
This marks the second consecutive season where NBC renews a summer show. Last season, NBC renewed freshman drama The Night Shift and comedy Undatable, which is the only returning drama on NBC's fall schedule.
The Carmichael Show received positive reviews from critics and drew comparisons to All in the Family due to the socially conscious discussions on the show such as race, politics and religion.
According to NBC, The 9 PM edition of The Carmichael Show (1.1 rating in 18-49, 4.7 million viewers in Live+Same Day) was the most-watched summer comedy on the Big 4 networks in eight years and tied for the No. 1 summer comedy over that span in adults 18-49.
While The Carmichael Show showed a week 2 increase in ratings, Mr Robinson showed a decline after a promising debut.
