About a Boy: Season One Ratings

about a boy cancel or renew?Both the About a Boy movie and novel were a big success. Will the TV show be a hit as well? Will it be a hit and renewed for a second season or will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned to find out.

About a Boy revolves around a songwriter (David Walton) who has a big hit that sets him up for life financially. His carefree world is turned upside down when a charming 11-year-old (Benjamin Stockham) and his single mom (Minnie Driver) move in next door.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

5/9 update: NBC has renewed About a Boy for a second season.

Final season averages: 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.93 million total viewers.

Note: Because the first episode aired outside of primetime, the ratings aren’t counted as part of the season averages.

Note: If you’re not seeing the updated chart, please try reloading the page. You can also see them here.

These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like About a Boy? Would you like to see it cancelled or renewed for second season?

My partner and I really like this show. However, Will’s sudden cross-country move in the last few minutes of season one’s last episode may require a Dallas-level doöver early in season two. If so, I hope that the second reversal proves more graceful than the first.

Agreed. The season was tied up so neatly and so fast i was sure it was going to be cancelled and that is why they did that. So happy it will be back as i think all the leads are great actors and the writing is very original and funny.
