The recipient of an associate’s degree in occupational studies from Heritage College, Alexander “Alex” Garbiso has over four years of experience as a personal trainer. When he isn’t helping clients achieve their fitness goals, Alex Garbiso enjoys watching his favorite TV shows, including Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Despite relatively poor ratings, the police-precinct-based sitcom was recently renewed for its fifth season by Fox. The show’s fourth season wrapped up with back-to-back 30-minute episodes on May 23; it will return in a new time slot for its fifth season in the fall of 2017. The show experienced its worst viewership this past year, with the season four premiere averaging 2.4 million as opposed to the 6.2 million who watched its pilot in September 2013. A new low of 1.7 million viewers tuned in for the May 9 double-episode block.

In spite of the decline in viewership, the critically acclaimed show has won numerous awards through its four seasons, including a 2014 Golden Globe for Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical. It stars Saturday Night Live alumnus Andy Samberg as police detective Jake Peralta and includes co-stars Melissa Fumero; Joe Lo Truglio; Terry Crews; and Andre Braugher, who has been nominated three times for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy Award.
