Ratings Roundup for the Week of January 26, 2020

Apologies for the delay, the Friday and Saturday numbers were delayed. 


The CW wrapped up Arrow last week. The show that started the superhero craze for the network went out on a quiet note, ratings were even with its last few episodes. Supernatural topped the chart last week, once again the only show on the network to garner more than a million viewers.

ABC wrapped Emergence. The show never really found an audience and went out with a whimper. Station 19 lost a couple of tenths off its premiere, but should be fine as long as it holds where it is. Grey's Anatomy lost three tenths from last week. Mixed-ish and Black-ish were steady but low. Chances of renewal are decreasing and the only thing that might save both shows is the fact ABC/Disney produces them.

CBS enjoyed the ratings boost from the Grammy Awards last week. The annual awards show was down from last year, but not by much. Criminal Minds was up a couple of tenths. Hawaii Five-0 lost a tenth from its last new episode while Magnum PI was steady. Evil wrapped its first season, though not many noticed. It's renewed, but it won't be on the fall schedule.

FOX took a deep breath last week before the Super Bowl ratings feast. 9-1-1: Lone Star held its audience and should be renewed. Deputy wavered the previous week, but managed to pick up a tenth last week. It's even with Prodigal Son in numbers, and both shows should squeak renewals, assuming neither falters.

@JulienLiir Yeah FOX seems to have a nice little franchise going. Assuming the rating don't tank over the next couple of weeks, it should be renewed. 


@gmpugs Deputy and Prodigal Son are both about even with middling numbers, not great, but not really bad either. The trick will be what schedule space the network has to play with for next season. If there isn't a lot of room, it may be a coin toss as to which one gets renewed. 

Evil will be pushed off to summer (assuming it doesn't get oops "forgotten" about before then). FBI Most Wanted should get renewed, I wouldn't get too attached to Lincoln Rhyme though.

I'm liking Deputy and Prodigal Son, I hope both get renewed. Evil, I'll probably taking it off my DVR to record after I watch the last two episodes. I'm going to miss Arrow. I'm on the fence for Lincoln Rhyme and FBI: Most Wanted.

I am really happy to see the success of 911-Lone Star!  I have been really impressed with the show so far!

I've always said Supernatural would only be cancelled when Jared and Jensen wanted to stop making it.

I think it's great that after all these years Supernatural (a show older than the network) is still such a force for The CW ... I know it's the last year but, one can fight demons and such from wheelchairs and old folks homes ... just sayin' :)
