Ratings Roundup for the Week of February 23, 2020

610382.jpg

CBS dropped a bombshell on fans of Hawaii Five-0 late Friday afternoon, announcing the series would end in April. The program was a solid ratings winner for the network on Friday nights, though actor contracts were up for stars Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan. Chances are, the new Friday night lineup for the network next season will be Magum PI, MacGyver, and Blue Bloods. SEAL Team returned with back-to-back episodes. Ratings were even with its last new episode in December. NCIS: New Orleans gained a tenth from the previous week while NCIS: Los Angeles was even.

NBC ended the suspense for any Dick Wolf fans last week, as well, signing Wolf to a new contract and renewing all three Chicago series' as well as Law & Order: SVU to three-year renewals. Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist gained a tenth, Indebted was even. Neither show really has much chance for renewal.

ABC did some schedule shuffling last week. The Rookie benefited from following American Idol, gaining two tenths from its last new episode in December. Shark Tank moved from Sunday to Friday and gained two tenths as well. The Connors lost a couple of tenths, but should be in no danger. Station 19 gained a tenth. A Million Little Things and Bless This Mess were even.

FOX had a quiet week. Deputy gained a tenth, proving it's not out of the fight quite yet. Duncanville was even with its premiere, but was also the lowest rated of the Sunday animation shows. Last Man Standing was even as were back-to-back episodes of Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours To Hell And Back

wow hawaii five -0 going is so sad. me and the mrs will miss you....now will somebody please tell me why  law and order svu is still around.every episode is a pain to watch

The simple answer is NBC loves Dick Wolf. They just signed him to a new five year (??) deal, so his shows aren't going anywhere, any time soon. 

And I'm with your mrs. Hawaii Five-0 was one of the few shows I still watched.

It was announced last Fall that the show wasn't going to be renewed. It never really lived up to its potential ratings-wise, would be my guess.

I know, how they announced it was the surprising part: I follow the actor who plays Duke (Dennis Chun) on Instagram and found out when he posted a picture and lovely thank you message to all those involved in the production and us fans as well, for making the show such a success. And while I know the odds are slim to none of them coming back for the finale, I can't help but wish that Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park will come back for the send off. And yeah, keep everyone alive and together please. :)

Completely as an aside, the older Dennis gets, the more he looks like his Dad. :)

Yes, he hurt his back doing a stunt back in season 2, I think. Had surgery and was OK for a few years. Around season 8 his back flared again, he had some sort of stem cell treatment that really helped. There's a reason Beulah Koale was brought on board, and it wasn't just to replace Daniel Dae Kim. They needed someone younger to take over the heavy lifting with the big chase scenes and the like. Like I said, the series ending wasn't the surprise, it was the annnddd we're done aspect.  Fan rumor for years has been that Alex and Scott had a pact that they would stay or go together and I'm sure the production has known about this for months so they've had plenty of time to come up with a suitable conclusion. As long as everyone is still alive and still together at the end, that's all I want.

With Five-0, I remember reading/hearing that Alex O'Laughlin hurt his back in one of the earlier seasons, I wonder if that played a reason for him choosing to not renew his contract. I know they could have recast McGarrett if they wanted (Danno too since Scott's contract was up for renewal as well), but it wouldn't be the same without Alex and Scott in their roles.

God Friended Me is a weird one. It does well when following football, but tanks when it doesn't have the extra help. However, it did the same thing in its first season and got a second, and it was up last week ... Chances are it will squeak another season for the simple reason ABC doesn't have anything to put in its place. If it does get a season three, season four is practically guaranteed. 

I was stunned about the Five-0 decision, that's one of the few shows i actually watch. I thought we'd get a final season renewal and it would end next year. Apparently not.

And I hope both Prodigal Son and Deputy get renewed, however, if only one does, I'm still leaning that Fox picks Prodigal Son.
