Crisis: Season One Ratings

Crisis NBC TV show ratingsCBS didn’t find ratings success with Hostages. Will NBC fare any better with Crisis? Will it be cancelled after one season? We shall see.

An action/thriller series, Crisis finds out what might happen if the children of powerful people from Washington, DC were to be taken prisoner. The cast includes Dermot Mulroney, Rachael Taylor, Lance Gross, James Lafferty, Max Martini, Michael Beach, Stevie Lynn Jones, Halston Sage, Max Schneider, Joshua Erenberg, and Gillian Anderson.

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.

    Could not find previous comments from me– could you post where I posted previously — the show is good and liked the premise — would have like to see more background on why the children were kidnapped in the first place and how chosen

    I have to agree with Nemo, Crisis really was a major disappointment. Biggest problem was how unrealistic it was. I know to suspend reality and that its entertainment, but i was really uninterested with the characters. It was great seeing Anderson back on TV, but that’s about it. Thank God for pre recording all my shows. I found myself forwarding through much of this train wreck. NBC has been notorious for canceling shows such as Heros, Kings and so on. This one is totally agree with.

    Shame on you NBC for cancelling abruptly the TV show CRISIS, and for not even giving it a decent end!
    You have enough successful audience rating related shows for at least wrapping the season and program it at a late time.
    I hope that the syrupy Rosemary’s baby will expire in the womb and viewers will instead watch the real one.

    The writers for “Crisis” are verrry clever. would love to see a Season 2 and what they
    will surprise us with to continue the fast pace drama. Note: Some of the negative
    comments on this site appear to be from the same person … with an agenda (?)

    Hopefully this will be renewed, perhaps moved to a new time slot to improve viewership. The cast, writing and acting are wonderful. All the suspense and plot twists keeps us on the edge of our seats. It has also been nice to see veteran actor, Mark Valley, back on TV.

    I love the Crisis TV series with Gillian Anderson. I like to see it renewed for second season.

    Are you kiddin??? Crazier things are happening in one’s own backyard these days so who knows what reality is anymore? This thing keeps me interested and that’s not easy! 24 was stuck in time and that board me to death? Anyone who saw the scenes between Taylor, Anderson and you know who with the knife has to be kidding if they call that “wooden”. If this show gets canceled I will go back to not even noticing NBC on Broadcast TV because that was where I and many others were prior to this twisting, turning roller coaster ride. Is it any less believable than Resurrection? That’s entertainment folks…! I am following every week and having great fun guessing next week’s turns? Sunday night book club and I don’t have to turn any pages?

    This show has become unbearable. I guess the writers think all watchers are just plain stupid. I have tried to get past the wooden actors given the cast members, but the storyline has become so full of holes and nowhere near believable. I guess this show works for a lot of people, but I am very disappointed in how much it has declined over the 7 aired shows. Hostage was better and that isn’t saying much.

      These shows that are trying to do season long hostage/fugitive on the run/terror plot a la 24 all seem to fall flat. 24 was great season after season, all these clones stink.

        Please, Please, at least finish this storyline, it was great, looked forward to it every week. It’s really unfair not to finish it. Thanks.
