Tracking the ratings for the broadcast network sci fi / fantasy shows factoring in DVR viewing up to seven days past the live broadcast (data is on a three week delay).

Cancellation Watch: The CW Boss Issues a Call to Action for Fans of The 100

The CW’s fan-favoritie post-apocalyptic sci fi series The 100 has had low ratings pretty much since early in its first season (typically pulling only half a ratings point per episode in the 18-49 demographic based on the overnights), yet has been renewed twice, currently into its third season.  But when The CW recently released its schedule for the… Read More »

Cancellation Watch: Wayward Pines Debuts Poorly, Agents of SHIELD Falls to Series Low with Season Finale

On the Hot Seat: FOX’s “limited run” series Wayward Pines (from that M. Night Shyamalan guy) had its debut last night and only pulled a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic based on the overnights with 3.8 million total viewers (based on the preliminary numbers).  That’s a pretty tepid bow for the show and does not bode well… Read More »

Cancellation Watch: Person of Interest Was Close to Getting Axed, Constantine Could Show Up on Arrow, Agents of SHIELD Spin-off Not Dead Yet

So from what I am hearing, CBS’ Person of Interest was closer to getting cancelled than I thought, though not because the numbers justified it (which they didn’t).  Apparently that show was a large part of the holdup that led to the delayed announcements for its network’s renewals and cancellations as they wrangled with the show’s studio Warner Bros.… Read More »
