The third season of "Undateable" aired last Friday and while the ratings were what one would consider "soft," the show is unlike most sitcoms.
You see last season "Undateable" tried its hand at a live show at the end of season two, and the reviews were strong. NBC liked the idea so much that they switched "Undateable" to a new night, Friday's, and decided the show would air live every week, not just a one off special.
The result is a well received show and strong reviews, and has helped "Undateable" differentiate itself from the other sitcoms on the air. And while the general public hasn't taken note of it as far as ratings go, those who make reviewing their profession can't help but enjoy what the show is doing.
You also have to remember that Friday night isn't exactly a prime spot for a budding show, "Undateable" also went up agains the MLB playoffs on October 10.
The initial show was, in fact, enjoyable, fun to watch and it makes matters even better that the cast is totally aware that the show is live and have fun with it (like live updates on baseball scores and giving out star Chris D'Elia's phone number, presumably, to the masses).
