The Hot in Cleveland-spinoff has quietly performed well enough on TV Land for the past three seasons. During its second season, TV Land moved the series to 11 o’clock, where it looked like it would come to an end. Surprisingly, The Soul Man performed well enough in the later hour and was moved behind Hot in Cleveland in its third season, which finished airing in May. The fourth season will consist of 12 episodes, its largest order since season one, which was also made up of 12 episodes.
Data for season three is sparse, but The Soul Man debuted to 1.02 million viewers, and finished the season with 770,000 viewers. TV Land notes the series performs very well among African American viewers, specifically women 25-54.
As for the other TV Land originals, Hot in Cleveland is currently in its fifth season, and has been renewed for a sixth, The Exes was renewed for a fourth season in February (my personal favorite TV Land original), Kirstie was cancelled last week, and the networks first single-camera comedy, Jennifer Falls, is airing in its first season.
