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.

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?

I like Body of Proof. The cast is great and it has humor. The relationship between Dana Delaney and her daughter is spot on for the most part and it shows Jeri Ryan’s character intract with Dana Delaney’s in a way I’d like to see women work in real life. It is much better than that forgettable, unforgettable. I don’t buy that show’s plot at all. What good does the memory do if she doesn’t witness the crime. Having a good memory doens’t imply good crime solving skills automatically. And the cast is a bore.

Please keep the show. I love it soooo much, it is funny, entertaining and suspenceful, I love it. ABC do not make another mistake about cancelling an awesome show remember (flashfoward)

keep Body of Proof going — lots of lovely twists, good interplay with characters — as an old Star Trek fan — I find it interesting to watch Seven of Nine — in the show as a doctor — great casting. don’t cancel it — I hate almost all of the “reality” shows and this season’s line-up for comedy and drama has me back watching tv after having almost given up on prime time tv

please keep this show it is getting really good

Lloyd Pritchett November 17, 2011 at 8:59 am

I enjoy this show very much.I say renew for next season.

More often than not it is the network that kills a series, rather than the show itself. We’ve seen it happen time and again over the years. Since we have mostly an unknown cast, we still have here something many series don’t: an Emmy Award-winning actress carrying an entire show. I love Dana Delany and always try to follow a project she’s involved in because she brings class and elegance to the screen. Regrettably, as in this particular instance, she isn’t being given enough to work with. I do like this show and want to see it continue however, a first season that is supposed to give viewers a year’s worth of entertaining only runs 9 episodes! What is that? I don’t care how good an actor is or how compelling a story arc, a cast can only do so much development of a show in 9 episodes, to say nothing of the writers. And how do you maintain interest? New episodes and reruns have to keep viewers entertained for an entire year until the next season can start. Again, how do you accomplish that with 9 episodes?! Let’s look. Eneath the surface and show respect for a group of people doing the best they can with what they have to work with, and blame the network rightfully if it doesn’t pan out.

What I’ve noticed in the past is that the lovely Ms. Delany has bad luck with signing on to projects that don’t carry any network faith. Many shows she has headlined are cancelled well before a handful of episodes have aired. I’m sorry, network execs, but your all mighty bottomline is t helped. H pulling the plug on a show that has only aired 5 episodes. If you aren’t going to give a series an opportunity to find its footing after you’ve free lit it, then don’t bother wasting our time with it.

I enjoy the show, but it would be so much better if Delaney’s Dr. Hunt was a character who didn’t alienate me like she alienates people around her. Other characters who have issues with social skills still seem to have something about them that connects to me. For example, House or Monk. I just don’t find Megan likable.

A.D. November 2, 2011 at 10:22 am

Yes, renew the show. It’s a good one.

Diane November 2, 2011 at 9:29 am

Love the show too!! I like the chemistry between Megan & Peter besides the 2 guys who help her out. Think that’s a good story line having Megan’s boss be involved with her ex. And Joanna Cassidy who plays Megan’s Mom – wasn’t she once married to Johnny Carson?
RENEW IT!!!

RENEW

Gregory of L.A. October 19, 2011 at 4:36 pm

Absolutley love this show. Strong, intelligent women in charge. Dana Delaney is the best woman on TV right now. The story lines are smart & exciting. Networks have to stop bending over for this Nielson jerk. Check DVR data from cable & satellite providers for a more accurate count of whose tuning in!!

SEAL76 October 13, 2011 at 7:53 am

This show is a keeper. Dana Delaney is so hot.

BL October 5, 2011 at 9:12 am

I love this Body of Proof. The women are powerful and sexy. Wendell Middlebrooks and Geoffrey Arend are hilarious. I like the way they use humor along with the drama and mystery. I think Season Two is coming together nicely. I enjoy the show much better so far this season. I hope ABC will give it a chance to grow an audience.

Ky September 29, 2011 at 10:02 am

I say renew it; most shows take a little time to get their feet under them, the story-lines are good, and I think having a short first season (9 eps of 13) may have delayed development some. Certainly stupider shows have lasted longer, give this one a chance.

Bruce September 29, 2011 at 9:42 am

This show is OK. I only watch it, really because Geri Ryan is in it. HUBBA HUBBA! :P
