At the 2017 Imagen Foundation Awards, the series won Best Primetime Television Program – Comedy, Best Actress – Television (Machado), Best Supporting Actress – Television (Gomez) and Best Young Actor – Television (Ruiz). Moreno was nominated for a Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. The series has also been nominated three times for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series. The theme song for the original One Day at a Time series, "This Is It", which was composed by husband-and-wife songwriters Jeff Barry and Nancy Barry, was re-recorded for the new series, with a new arrangement by Emilio Estefan featuring Cuban instrumentation and lead vocals by Gloria Estefan.

ONE DAY

As it did after One Day At a Time‘s first cancellation almost two years ago, series producer Sony Pictures TV tried hard to find a new home for the praised reimagining of Norman Lear’s beloved 1970s sitcom. The effort — considered a long shot — was not successful, and the cast and crew were informed today that the show has come to an end. One Day at a Time co-creators/exec producers/showrunners Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce shared the news with the show’s fans on Twitter.Pop, which aired One Day at a Time’s abbreviated fourth season earlier this year, last month opted not to order more episodes. The ViacomCBS ad-supported cable network in 2019 had rescued the series after its cancellation by Netflix in a complex deal that included encore airings on sibling CBS. Season 4 of One Day at a Time, which was cut short by the pandemic, was simulcast on Pop and sibling TV Land. One Day is developed by legendary producer Norman Lear, who produced the original and has a legacy of introducing progressive ideas and controversial topics into the homes of millions via such shows as All in the Family and The Jeffersons. He was, thankfully, wise enough in his 90s to know that an old white man isn’t the right person to write a story about a Latinx single mother, so recruited Cuban-American writer Gloria Calderón Kellett as co-showrunner, who developed the show to reflect her own experiences. A commitment to authenticity trickled down to the writing team, which in the first season was half women and half Latinx.

While One Day has rightly received praise for its Latinx and queer representation, it is as remarkable for its depiction of a formidable matriarchy. Despite their differences, all three generations of Alvarez women navigate life’s challenges with that distinctly feminine combination of strength, wisdom and empathy. The positive effect this has on young Alex is a quiet but convincing case for the power of female leadership. Consistently appearing in critics’ “best of” lists and holding a near-perfect critical score on Rotten Tomatoes wasn’t enough to keep One Day afloat: Netflix cancelled the series after three seasons, citing too few viewers. A strong social media campaign saw US network Pop TV save it for a fourth season (which is unfortunately unavailable to stream in Australia at the time of writing), but Covid delays and network changes permanently killed it late last year. Family sitcoms are an important medium on TV, Professor Ruiz said. Even including English-language shows like “Jane the Virgin” that portrayed Latino families but were based on telenovelas, Spanish soap operas, depictions of Latino families on mainstream English-language television are comparatively scarce, he said. “One Day at a Time” was traditional, he said, taking place mostly inside the Alvarez family’s living room. Its characters also went through the same challenges that many other families go through. (Source: www.nytimes.com)

Family sitcoms ae an important medium on TV, Professor Ruiz said. Even including English-language shows like “Jane the Virgin” that portrayed Latino families but were based on telenovelas, Spanish soap operas, depictions of Latino families on mainstream English-language television are comparatively scarce, he said. “One Day at a Time” was traditional, he said, taking place mostly inside the Alvarez family’s living room. Its characters also went through the same challenges that many other families go through.

Latinos are the largest ethnic minority group in the United States, accounting for more than 18 percent of the population. But according to a 2016 report from the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, only 5.8 percent of speaking or named character TV and film roles were played by Latinos. Consistently appearing in critics’ “best of” lists and holding a near-perfect critical score on Rotten Tomatoes wasn’t enough to keep One Day afloat: Netflix cancelled the series after three seasons, citing too few viewers.
