Sci Fi TV Status Report: Zoo Could Be in Trouble, Castlevania Gets a Second Season, and More

By | July 11, 2017

On Thursday of last week, CBS’ Zoo got a bit of good news when its ratings for its second Season 3 episode improved to a 0.6 rating based on the overnights for the 18-49 demographic. But the bad news was that it dropped to 2.9 million total viewers (down from thee million the prior week) and older-skewing CBS pays more attention to that stat. Plus, the show is down year-over-year and performing much worse than the reality shows and game shows that broadcast networks are offering this Summer. And you can’t blame the low numbers on scheduling, because Zoo has Big Brother as it lead-in which is the network’s highest rated show and a Top 5 entry for the broadcast networks. The sci fi series has not been able to take advantage of its lead-in boost and has lost close to 70% of the audience two weeks in a row. Nor has it managed to crack the Top 25 despite a lack of competition during the Summer season.
