Jake in Progress

Jake in Progress Information

Jake in Progress is an American comedy series broadcast on ABC from 2005 to 2006. Created by Austin Winsberg, the show was originally conceived as a real-time comedy; the first season was to show the first date of Jake and a woman. This was dropped during development, and the show became more conventional and episodic. The first aired episode reflected the original plan, and covering the first half-hour of a date.


The main character is Jake (John Stamos), a New York City publicist-to-the-stars who tries to change his womanizing ways as he tries to find the woman of his dreams. Stamos' co-stars in the show are Naomi (Wendie Malick), Jake's boss at the Magnum PR Agency; Adrian (Ian Gomez), Jake's best friend; and Patrick (Rick Hoffman), the performance artist who always appears at the most inopportune times.



The show averaged 5.5 million viewers in its first season and was initially canceled. However, the network reversed course and announced the show would return as the lead-out from a highly anticipated series, Emily's Reasons Why Not. The Jake character was softened somewhat in the second series in an effort to make him more relatable. The first night of the sitcom pairing faired poorly in the ratings; after one week, ABC immediately scheduled a rerun of The Bachelor during the one-hour block for the following week, putting both shows on indefinite hiatus. ABC confirmed on May 13 that Jake had been cancelled.
