If you read this space prior to this show airing, you know why it was given a greenlight.
That show is not going anywhere (no matter what people say or its crap reviews and ratings) as long as that married former A- list mostly television actress from multiple hit shows back in the day keeps sleeping with the guy she is sleeping with who says yes or no to shows.
“Insatiable” renewed for Season 2 in spite of controversy
The Netflix series “Insatiable,” a dark comedy about a high school girl who loses weight and becomes popular, has been renewed for a second season. A Netflix Twitter account announced the news on Wednesday.
“Insatiable” was hit with criticism even before its release, with naysayers saying that the show fat-shamed people. The series focuses on Patty, a high schooler who classmates call “Fatty Patty,” played by actress Debby Ryan. After Patty gets her jaw wired shut during the summer, she returns to school “hot.” In a voiceover in the trailer, Patty refers to herself as a “former fatty.” Social media users were especially upset that Ryan wears a fat suit for the role.
At the time, actress Alyssa Milano, series creator Lauren Gussis and Cindy Holland, vice president of original series at Netflix, told people to reserve their judgment for after the show’s release, hinting that their minds would change once they saw the context. But “Insatiable” was skewered by critics, earning an 11 percent “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Some social media users suggested that viewers who “hate-watched” the show inadvertently contributed to its success. – Source
