Criminal Minds: Season Nine Ratings

Criminal Minds season nine ratingsBack for its ninth season on CBS, Criminal Minds is often overlooked but has long been a solid performer for the network. Still, the show’s ratings did see a good-sized drop last season. Will the numbers continue to fall or will they rise again? Will it ever be cancelled? We shall see.

Criminal Minds continues to follow the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) out of Quantico. This season’s cast is Thomas Gibson, Joe Mantegna, A.J. Cook, Shemar Moore, Matthew Gray Gubler, Kirsten Vangsness, and Jeanne Tripplehorn.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

For comparisons: The eighth season of Criminal Minds averaged a 2.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 11.43 million total viewers.

Note: 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 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 still like the Criminal Minds TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or be renewed for a 10th season?

Criminal Minds is one of the best crime shows there is. The last couple of seasons haven’t been up to par, but I don’t think that its something they can’t come back from. They’ve got a lot of great talent with the original cast members. They just need to stay true to it.
