Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey: Ratings

Cosmos ratingsIt’s been quite awhile since FOX programmed anything but animated shows on Sunday nights — and there certainly hasn’t been anything like Cosmos on the network before. Will their gamble pay off and bring in bigger ratings or, will it be a disappointment? We’ll see.

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is a follow up to the Carl Sagan series from 1980 and is hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. The series follows how humans discovered the laws of nature and the quest for knowledge.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically the following morning, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. 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 new Cosmos TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

That’s a fascinating comment on “How the Universe Works.” We watched a couple of episodes and found it nowhere near as good as “Cosmos.” In fact we sent the DVD back to Netflix without watching all the episodes and deleted the other disc. We’re enthralled with “Cosmos” partly because of Tyson’s presentation, but also because of the visuals. The visuals on “How the Universe Works” were repetitive and the voice-over reminds me of those Discovery and History channel shows where the narration is supposed to sound creepy and mysterious. No thanks.

Perhaps you didn’t like the 2nd season (2012) narration by Erik Todd Dellums.

Consider giving the 3rd season (now) a second chance, narrated by Mike Rowe.

I would suggest that the TV series “How the Universe Works” has much better science content about the cosmos, and avoids the thinly-veiled political agenda and poor-qualiy cartoon re-enactments of “Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey.” Sagan’s version was much better, and despite over three decades of time, still remains relevant and conveys a sense of awe that the remake does not.

I LOVE this show. Please continue it. It’s the best science show I’ve seen in years, and Tyson is a big plus in anything he does.

i agree. when i first heard about the show i was skeptical on how that would turn out without Carl Sagan. And i must say Tyson does a great job. I also like the way he references Carl
