CBS TV Show Ratings for 2010-11 Season [as of 4/14/11]

CHAOSIt was a really bad week for CHAOS and 48 Hours Mystery. Most of the rest of the CBS schedule also saw losses. Only three TV series registered week-to-week gains — 60 Minutes, NCIS, and Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior. The Good Wife was flat.

Which CBS TV shows will be cancelled or renewed depend mostly on the series’s ratings, particularly the 18-49 demographic. Before we get to the season-to-date averages, here are the winners and losers from April 8th through April 14th — based on the coveted demo, as measured against the last original episode.

Week-to-Week Gains: 60 Minutes 2.2/7 (+46.7%), NCIS 3.9/12 (+2.6%), and Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior 2.6/7 (+23.8%).

No Change: The Good Wife 2.0/5

Week-to-Week Losses: CHAOS 0.9/3 (-18.2%), CSI: NY 1.7/5 (-5.6%), Blue Bloods 1.6/5 (-5.9%), 48 Hours Mystery 1.0/3 (-28.6%), The Amazing Race 2.9/8 (-9.4%), Undercover Boss 3.1/8 (-3.1%), CSI: Miami 2.3/6 (-14.8%), How I Met Your Mother 2.7/8 (-10.0%), Mad Love 1.9/5 (-9.5%), Mike & Molly 2.5/6 (-16.7%), Hawaii Five-0 2.5/7 (-13.8%), NCIS: Los Angeles 3.3/9 (-5.7%), Survivor: Redemption Island 3.1/9 (-3.1%), and Criminal Minds 3.5/9 (-2.8%).

Below is a list of the regular CBS TV shows and their 2010-11 season average ratings to date. It only incorporates the ratings for original episodes and not repeats. The data is sorted by the all-important 18-49 demographic averages. The closer a show is to the bottom, the more likely it is to be cancelled. Fridays and Saturdays are the least-watched nights of TV so those shows get lower numbers.
