Betrayal: Season One Ratings

Betrayal TV show ratingsABC hasn’t had ratings success on Sundays at 10pm in awhile. Pan Am, 666 Park Avenue, GCB, and Red Widow were all cancelled. Will Betrayal be a different story and end up renewed for a second season? Time will tell.

On Betrayal, the extra-marital affair of two professionals gets even more complicated when their families end up on the opposite sides of a murder trial. The cast includes Stuart Townsend, Hannah Ware, Henry Thomas, Chris Johnson, Wendy Moniz, Braeden Lemasters, Elizabeth McLaughlin, and James Cromwell.

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.

    I love this show, it’s one of my top 3 shows I watch. I have to watch it on my ipad2 on mon. Cuz I work to late to watch it on tv. I really would love to see this series go beyond 2 seasons. It’s an adult show and it’s not about reality shows, cooking shows. It’s nice to watch something diff. 2 thumbs up on this series abc great job….. Love it!!! Really should keep this show….

    I also hope that the network will give Betrayal more of a chance. I think it’s an excellent, intelligent show with a great cast and it’s so nice to watch something that’s not another “forensic evidence” show. I love Betrayal and really hope to see a lot more of it!

    I really hope they do NOT cancel Betrayal!!! The chemistry between the leads is palpable. When I first saw the trailer for the show, I honestly had no desire to watch. I figured it would just be another one of those shows about “beautiful people” cheating w/out remorse. The different layers of betraying someone’s love and trust, questioning your own life choices, both past and present, are portrayed in a honest, raw and personal manner. Hopefully, they will pick it up for another season.

    Please keep Betrayal! Townsend and Ware are hot! I have to watch the show on my iPad and can’t wait for the new episodes to show up. Addicted to the Watch ABC app. If you even think of canceling, I will send Emily Thorne after you. 😉

    Betrayal is one of my must see shows this season. My husband and I go right from Revenge into Betrayal. The popcorn is ready and we are settled in for the night. Please don’t cancel this show. We now love Sunday night TV!!!

    Love this show and how it’s showing the ripple effect from the affair. Wish people would give it a chance. It’s about so much more than 2 people cheating and is soooooo good.

    I like this show since I am tired of reality shows and the same old shows. This is something different. Keep it on for another season.

    I really look forward to this show, and what will happen next. I have to watch from the ABC.com website, since I don’t have a tv, so I am not showing up in the regular ratings.
    ABC!! Please continue this series.
