This season, CBS aired a TV show called Pure Genius that revoved around using advanced technology to help solve medical problems. It didn’t do well in the ratings and will likely be cancelled soon. Now, FOX is trying a high-tech cop series called APB. Will this TV show do any better in the ratings? Will the APB TV series be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
On the APB TV show, the Chicago Police Department is spiraling out of control thanks to high crime, officer-involved shootings, cover-ups, corruption, and under-funding. Billionaire engineer Gideon Reeves (Justin Kirk) wants to change all that. He puts up millions of dollars of his own money to take charge of the troubled 13th District and reboots it as a technically innovative police force. Teaming with street-smart Detective Theresa Murphy (Natalie Martinez) and tech wiz Ada Hamilton (Caitlin Stasey), Reeves embarks on a mission to create a crime-fighting force for the 21st century. The FOX series cast also includes Ernie Hudson, Taylor Handley, and Tamberla Perry.
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.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
