Last summer, ABC resurrected the BattleBots TV show. It performed well enough in the ratings for the network to bring it back and order even more episodes. How will it perform this time around? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
On the new version of BattleBots, the next generation of killer robots fight each other for the win. They’re bigger, faster, and stronger than ever before. Episodes focus on the design and building of each robot, the bot builders’ backstories, their intense pursuit of the championship, and the spectacle of the event. Commenting on and judging the action are Chris Rose, Kenny Florian, Samantha Ponder, Alison Haislip, Fon Davis, Jessica Chobot, Faruq Tauheed, and Clark Gregg.
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.
