Just remember: it only gets harder from here on out!
You — yes, YOU! — can save our favorite queer sitcom One Day at a Time. All you have to do is watch it tonight (and the next three weeks) on CBS.
It’s quintessential One Day at a Time: affirming in a way that few other shows could be, affirming in a way that few others strive to be.
“Watching season four episodes — the feeling of normalcy, of connection, of being able to laugh. I’m so grateful to be with our fans and live-tweet. It’s almost like Tuesdays are the only time I know what day of the week it is! I put lipstick. I feel like a real person, just to sit in the before for just a second.”
“Each day seems to bring more bad news so it’s been such a tremendous relief to have this show every week to genuinely make me laugh. It has been the perfect show for this not-so-perfect moment.”
To have this show on the air at this moment — even if Netflix had renewed the show, it likely would have debuted in January — it just felt fated. We needed this show at this moment and I was so grateful for it.
