Recent trends haven’t been so noice to the Andy Samberg sitcom — at least, not on linear TV
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is finally back, and also ending again. (And in fairly unceremonious fashion, getting burned off two episodes at a time during the summer. Not cool, cool, cool, cool, cool, cool, NBC.)
Now an NBC sitcom in its eighth and final season, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” ratings have declined steadily among adults 18-49, the demographic most heavily coveted by advertisers, for each of the past five seasons, though the move from Fox to NBC (after the latter network saved the scrapped Universal comedy in 2019) regained some overall eyeballs — generally from those over 50.
