Kroll Show was not renewed for the reasons cited in major hollywood publications

You gotta trust the press, right?

And, so when Deadline Hollywood, Hollywood Reporter, A. V club, and Entertainment weekly, Us Magazine(called Kroll show a "smash hit,") who has the time or inclination to even wonder...

Well, when you are left in the PICKLE of the century because of Nick Kroll's , you find the time and you have the inclination....

So, here's the now oft repeated justification for why this syphilis of a show has now been renewed for a third season.

It had good ratings, see! It had an average of 1.1 say major industry publications such as Hollywood Reporter and Deadline Hollywood and Entertainment Weekly. No discussion of the demographic, of course. No discussion that demographic wise it never got near 1.1 

Let's investigate( even if we can't ever be hired for Kroll- the premier investigative arm of lots of very bad people, and stuff.)

Let's stick to the very basics: 1.1

Ratings Review: KROLL SHOW

Freshman comedy series KROLL apparently did not click with viewers. The 1.2 million viewers it received from the series premiere is not too bad, but the drop of 41% to its lowest point, normally would have eliminated it from a possible second season. However, it was picked up before the third episode aired and the ratings began to free-fall.

I know it was difficult to find ratings for the series as most sourced do not publish programs that are that far down in the daily numbers. But I did at least find viewership numbers. KROLL SHOW averaged 880,000 viewers over the eight week season.

I'm no math whiz. But, TV a holic says that these are the numbers for the first season. Strangely, Dateline Hollywood says this.http://www.deadline.com/2013/01/comedy-centrals-kroll-show-renewed/
 
said this
 about last season:
The premiere of Kroll Show on January 16 drew 1.4 million total viewers and was the #1 show in all of television on Wednesday in its 10:30 p.m. timeslot among Men 18-34 and Men 18-24. Across the premiere and two encore replays that night, Kroll Show averaged over 2.0 million total viewers and 1.6 million adults 18-49.


So, who is posting inaccurate(or fraudulent considering Kroll) ratings- TV a Holic or Deadline Hollywood?
 
My formatting is now messed up. Please, excuse.
 
So, maybe this second season's ratings go far to explain this 1.1 average ratings for Kroll Show?
