Not good news for the sophomore drama. Episode two dropped 18% in the demo to a 1.8 rating and 9.19 million viewers. It was in last place for the timeslot and is now the lowest-rated scripted series on the network. If you love the show, that’s not the position you want it to be in.
Season average: 2.0 demo with 9.3 million.

Episode 02-01: Tuesday, 9/20/11
Delany and company had a disappointing debut for their second season, attracting a 2.2 in the 18-49 demographic and 9.41 million viewers. It was in second place for the timeslot, narrowly beating NBC’s Parenthood. Compared to the series debut, Body of Proof was down 29% in the demo. Year-to-year, Proof was down just 5% when compared to now-cancelled Detroit 1-8-7 in the same timeslot.


Reference point: The 2010-11 season averaged a 2.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 11.13 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Body of Proof TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a third season?

Soften her character …. Or lose the rest of the male audience.

I love Body of Proof. The endings are always a surprise!

I really like Body of Proof. Good intriging stories with good potential character developement for all the characters on the show. I know the rating are pretty low but I hope ABC can give the show time to gain some ratings(maybe a different time slot). ABC has axed alot of shows I liked by not giving them a chance. Flashforward, the Forgotten were 2 shows that I thought should have been given more time. It disappoints me in how fast they cancel a show sometimes. It makes me not to want to even start watching a show for this reason.

Great show that should be retained. Another outstanding show “Detroit 187″ perished in this time slot; particular following DWTS. Perhaps this fine show would be served by changing it to another time slot with a fantastic lead in. Besides the entertainment, there’s much people can learn from this show.

We all have favourite actresses and shows for various reasons. Entertainment is
what we want. ABC, CBS etc. producers have the last word and often use personal abuse
to judge. Because one such producer was quitting, he passed judgement on a show to be
cancelled, deliberately. Dana Delany is attractive and lovely to look at, but the quality
is not there. Despite low viewership, the show drags on while top shows get cancelled.
Yes Dana Delany is hot, sexy. Sexier dresses and skirts maybe. Extend her character with a young lover who can’t get enough of her and becomes her partner of desire.
Better scripts.

Last week my DVR said that I was not allowed to record a single episode of the show because I was recording the series. Then when the show aired it didn’t record either. I record everything so I can fast forward and rewind as I see fit. (You can’t watch as many hours of tv as I do without doing that) It felt like the cable company didn’t want viewers to tune in. (I don’t think the world is a huge conspiracy or anything, just felt that way) Watching it on Demand sucks because you can’t fast forward through what parts you have already watched. But I suffered through the ancient commercials (they aired originally when the show aired so most were for shows that had already been aired and watched as well, or for sales that had been over for days and the like) I absolutely love this show, and see it growing into a wonderful show each week more and more. I have no idea why there is even a question that the show be renewed. This show is something I look forward to each week, and would hate there to be yet another hour that I just don’t watch that network when the season should be returning.

I love my Tivo. It doesn’t have restrictions like that, and recorded the show without any problems.
