Despite the mixed reception, we suppose that CBS is about to provide a second chance for “The Great Indoors,” taking into account that the television ratings of the pilot episode were pretty acceptable. Let’s take a look at some figures in order to supplement of our forecast. Currently, according to IMDB, “The Great Indoors” has a score of 6.2 out of 10 based on 180 user votes, 4 reviews from viewers and 2 reviews from critics.
