Tonight is the season 3 premiere of The Carmichael Show on NBC at 9pm ET/PT. The network will air back-to-back episodes with a premiere titled Yes Means Yes, centering on sexual assault.
The series was renewed for a third season on May 15 of last year, and stars Jerrod Carmichael as himself, along with Amber Stevens West, Lil Rey Howery, and Tiffany Haddish.
Season 2 of The Carmichael Show earned a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes for its premiere, with extra viewers tuning in for its Bill Cosby episode. Season 2 ratings dropped over the course of the season, but it still managed to hold onto a renewal.
The Hollywood Reporter describes The Carmichael Show as having the “unlikely” status of being the NBC show with the most seniority, despite its turbulent run. This season, however, could be a positive one for the show. THR writes, “The reality is that there has never been a better time to push The Carmichael Show to the masses.” Whether its content will have the desired effect on its viewer is still up for debate.
Read on to find out when and where to watch the show tonight.
