What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the ABC television network, American Crime stars Regina King, Felicity Huffman, Connor Jessup, Richard Cabral, and Benito Martinez. Recurring players include Sandra Oh, Cherry Jones, Tim DeKay, Janel Moloney, Dallas Roberts, Timothy Hutton, Lili Taylor, Ana Mulvoy-Ten, Mickaëlle X. Bizet, and Clayton Cardenas. In season three, Luis Salazar (Martinez) travels from Mexico to the United States, without documentation. Searching for his missing son, he discovers that modern servitude is thriving in the farmlands. Living in poverty and required to pay for their own food and other essentials, what little money workers earn ends up back in their employers’ pockets. This corrupt arrangement leaves them in such debt, that they can never leave. Undocumented workers aren’t the only people targeted by this system.
Season Three Ratings
The third season of American Crime averaged a 0.39 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.92 million viewers. Compared to season two that’s down by 58% and down by 48%, respectively. Find out how American Crime stacks up against other ABC TV shows.
The third season premiered with very poor numbers and they’ve gotten worse. Based on the ratings, American Crime should be cancelled. That said, this TV series has always been a poor performer, yet here it is in season three. Have the numbers dropped too low to be renewed? I think so.
