Covert Affairs: Season Five Ratings

Covert Affairs TV show on USAThe ratings for Covert Affairs have been dropping each season for awhile. Will they keep falling this year? Will they drop so low that the USA series is cancelled or, will it be renewed for a sixth season? Stay tuned!

On Covert Affairs, operatives Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) and Auggie Anderson (Chris Gorham) work together in the CIA’s Domestic Protection Division (DPD). The show’s cast also includes Kari Matchett, Peter Gallagher, Hill Harper, and Nicholas Bishop.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Reference point: Season four of Covert Affairs averaged a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.27 million total viewers.

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.

Hate Annie and McQuaid as lovers

This is false the show has fallen since the middle of season 3 not because of Annie and Auggie, watch the ratings of Season 3 for yourself, they fell from the episode 3×11 , (ratings season 4 average 2.5 million viewers , with DVR 3.9 million viewers )

I love this this season because of McQuaid and Annie. And it’s not just because of their chemistry, but their characters brings a maturity to the show that had spun into soap opera territory. I love McQuaid. He’s an awesome, down to earth man. Give him more bad guys to thrown through a window. Loved Lynn Collins. Olga and Annie were the best thing in the last episode. Too bad they killed her off. Great episode. I loved how we got to see Joan, Calder and Ryan. About time they got some much deserved screen time. Looking forward to see how this season ends. I want to know about Joan’s Balkans secret.

I don’t like this season, I don’t like Annie and McQuaid as a couple, and I’m not surprised of bad ratings

Totally agree! I don’t see this so called great “chemistry” between the two. This is the first season that I didn’t like, however I still hope it gets renewed for a sixth season.

Yeah, a season 6 of urgency, a lot to repair and restore in order, no chemistry between Annie and McQuaid

The bad ratings are because of the Fall, up against How to get away with murder. Thursday nights are highly competitive for even the Networks. Both White Collar (against Scandal) and Covert Affairs are little Davids against the Goliaths right now.

And if people were honest, they would see that the ratings dropped steadily as TV shows usually do, but in Covert Affairs, it really dropped in season 4, because the writers started to pander towards the Walkerson vocalists, which was a disaster the show never recovered from.

The writers need to ignore all the shippers no matter what pairing they’re on board and just write the SPY show it started out as. Who cares who ends up with who? It’s not what a action/spy show should focus on. I watch CA for the story and the spy stuff. And okay, I kinda love Annie’s and Calder’s designer suits too.
