Premiere: April 15th
Network: BBC America (BBC in Britain)

Note: This series is a British import and its success is more heavily determined by its performance in its home country.

Description: The continuing adventures of the Gallifreyan Time Lord known as the Doctor who from time to time regenerates into a new incarnation. He travels through time and space in his TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) with various, ever-changing companions and does battle with threats to the universe.

Status: (Update: 4/18/17) This returned for its tenth season on BBC America with a 0.39 rating based on the overnights for the 18-49 demographic and 920K total viewers.  That’s right about average with its prior season ratings, but its survival its tied more closely to how it performs in Britain.  And plans are already in the works for an eleventh season with a new Doctor, so don’t expect any cancellations for this long-running show.

Season to Date (StD) U.S. Ratings Results:
These will be posted once the show has aired at least two episodes in its current season.
