AMC TV Show Ratings (updated 8/25/15)

AMC TV show ratingsThough AMC has had some popular scripted series that have run for years, many others have been cancelled after just one season. How are the current crop of shows doing? Which will be cancelled or renewed? We’ll have to wait and see.

Scripted AMC Network shows listed: Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad, Fear the Walking Dead, Halt and Catch Fire, Hell on Wheels, Humans, Low Winter Sun, Mad Men, Turn: Washington Spies, and The Walking Dead.

Last update: Ratings for the most recent episodes of Hell on Wheels and Fear the Walking Dead added.

There’s lots of data that AMC execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are the major ingredient. Here’s an updated listing of all of their recent/current primetime scripted shows.

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

How are your shows doing? Check the other current rankings:
ABC | CBS | The CW | FOX | NBC
ABC Family | FX | HBO | MTV | Showtime | Syfy | TNT | USA

A couple of notes about these charts:
These figures are updated automatically as new ratings are released (usually a day or so after the broadcasts). The averages are based on the final national numbers (live plus same day viewing). For technical reasons, I have to resort them manually so feel free to let me know if I missed something.

The demo numbers, which are typically most important to the broadcast networks, aren’t quite as vital to cable channels because their audiences are usually much smaller. Demo numbers are typically reported using the 10ths decimal place (2.4, for example). In the averages, I’m using an extra decimal for easier ranking.

What do you think? Are you surprised by any of the ratings? Which shows should be doing better? Which one do you think will be cancelled next?

    Halt And catch Fire is the best thing on TV….It needs at least one more year to catch on…
    It’s not handled properly, people don’t even know it exists…Once they see it, they get hooked….

    I have just recently come across HACF on Amazon Prime in the UK and both myself and my husband love the show. The stories are engaging and we love the characters. Lee Pace as Joe is tremendous. I really hope AMC renew for a 3rd season because this is a very special show.

    I am praying that Halt and Catch Fire gets renewed for Season 3. The show is great for any ages, for both those of us who lived through the period, and those who look at it as “history.” AMC has done NOTHING to market this show. They do this over and over again with each series. Market your stuff and keep the good shows! Please renew this!

      That section is reserved for older shows. Mad Men ended recently so its numbers are still relevant for comparing with current shows.

    I THINK Halt and Catch Fire is a great show. Before I believe the number of people who watched the program. I would like to know how many people dvred it and watched it later, how many people watched on demand, and how many people watched it online. These are important numbers and may exceed the number who watched it live.

      The notes say these number are live viewers plus anybody who watched it via another format the same day i.e streaming, dvr etc.

      Agree, I like Saul but Halt is better. Acting is great and I’m genuinely curious to see where they’re going.

    My husband and i love this show.. There are not enough new westerns on tv. I did miss not seeing the other characters but know they will be back . At first iwe did feel like we missed a show because of the way it stated but soon got into it. Will be greatly disappointed if it’s canceled.

    Halt and Catch Fire is one of the best shows on TV. I lived it, breathed it, was there when the computer age began…it’s troubling that viewers don;t want to know how this technology all began. There are two episodes left and my fingers are crossed it’ll be renewed. But as i look at those ratings I don;t suppose it has a chance. So disheartening and FRUSTRATING!

    It’s strange to find MR. ROBOT getting much better ratings than Halt And Catch Fire. I find MR Robot exaggerated and made up of a lot of bullshit. While Halt and Catch fire gives out a great story of an interesting topic. For me Halt and Catch Fire is like Friday night Lights you don’t have too love football to love the show. I guess people don’t like reality.
