The Walking Dexit Continues, How Long Before the Network Executioner Claims The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead?

AMC’s The Walking Dead has wrapped up its ninth season with the lowest ratings the show has seen since it debuted back in 2010.

FOX’s vampire-pocalypse series The Passage just wrapped up its first season and the finale has left many wondering what will happen in the show’s second year. But at this point, there is no guarantee that it will be returning to the network’s schedule next season. Based on the Justin Cronin book of the same name, the show debuted… Read More »

Will The Orville and The Gifted Be Renewed or Cancelled?

FOX network execs addressed the critics yesterday at the TCAs, but had little to say about two of their sophomore shows The Orville and The Gifted.  Both shows debuted last year to decent ratings and both were among the network’s top performers in Live+7 delayed viewing.  But this year, they have experienced notable ratings drops.  The Gifted returned… Read More »

Will the Crisis on Infinite Earths Crossover Be Used to Trim Down the Arrow-verse? (Updated)

At the end of the Arrow-verse Elseworlds crossover event in December (which ran across The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl), The CW indicated that the Fall 2019 crossover will be the Crisis on Infinite Earths. For those not familiar with that, it was one of the first comic book “event series” (coming out in 1985) and it was used… Read More »

Will Jessica Jones and The Punisher Be Cancelled? Can Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage Be Saved?

When Netflix started rolling out its Marvel superhero shows in 2015–kicking off with Daredevil–they met with much acclaim and looked to be establishing a powerhouse lineup on the streaming service that would stick around for years. But now as we approach the end of 2018, three shows have been cancelled (Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage), one show… Read More »

Will The Gifted Be Renewed or Cancelled?

FOX’s X-Men spin-off series The Gifted premiered last season with decent, though not spectacular numbers, and ended up pulling in moderate ratings through its first year based on same day viewing. It did see notable gains in delayed viewing, though, and typically ended in the Top 25 each week based on the metric. But in its second season,… Read More »

The Walking Dexit Continues for TWD (Even the Stock Price is Dropping), Is the End in Site for the Show?

Another season for The Walking Dead has started and yet again the numbers for what was once the highest-rated scripted show on all of television (by a significant margin) have taken a notable hit as the audience continues to exit the show. The Season 9 premiere drew a 2.5 rating based on same day viewing for the 18-49… Read More »

Will Z Nation and Van Helsing Be Renewed or Cancelled?

Syfy’s zombie-pocalypse series Z Nation and its vampire-pocalypse series Van Helsing returned for their current seasons just this past Friday, and even though we only have ratings info for one episode each I believe I have a good gauge of where they stand based on that and other information that I know about the shows.

Cinemax’s supernatural drama Outcast, based on the Robert Kirkman comic of the same name, had its debut on that premium cable channel back in June of 2016. At that point, it barely registered in the ratings, averaging only a 0.06 score based on same day viewing for the 18-49 demographic. But then the pay channels are not as… Read More »

Will Wynonna Earp Be Renewed or Cancelled?

Syfy’s supernatural western Wynonna Earp returns for its new season on July 20th at 10 PM EST, and I believe it is time for fans to start prepping to show their support because it will be at a crossroads this year.  That show, which has experienced perpetually low ratings, will be entering its third season, and that appears to… Read More »
