Crossbones: Season One Ratings

Crossbones TV show on NBC ratingsA couple years ago, NBC aired Crusoe, an adventure series based on the classic Robinson Crusoe novel and character. It was quickly cancelled. Now, the network is trying Crossbones, another adventure series about the same era. Will this one be a success and be renewed for a second season or, will it be cancelled as well? We’ll have to wait and see.

Crossbones revolves around the life of Edward Teach (John Malkovich), better known as Blackbeard the pirate, and his desire to aquire a valuable invention called the longitude chronometer. Others in the cast are Yasmine Al Massri, Richard Coyle, Claire Foy, David Hoflin, Tracy Ifeachor, and Chris Perfetti.

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.

These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”).

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

Both my sister and I LOVE Crossbones… Richard Coyle and John Malkovich were excellent, the show was very well done… so often great shows take awhile to find their audience. As I recall, the now legendary Star Trek did not do all that well at first either. Not sure where they are getting their viewing numbers… but I would suspect that unfortunately the powers that be are intimidated by the fans of Blacksails many of whom bashed the show… and the kiddy fantasy Pirates of the Caribbean It will be unfortunate if this show is relegated to the graveyard of quality shows, just to be replaced with the mediocre fare which seems to form the vast majority of TV programs.

ARGH!!! I MISS THE CROSSBONES TV SHOW! GEEZ….SOMETHING GOOD IS ON TV & IT IS GONE. WHY IS THAT? DO YOU THINK ONLY PEOPLE UNDER 25 WATCH TELEVISION? WAS IT NOT DUMB ENOUGH? I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY IT WAS TAKEN OFF THE AIR.

Thoroughly enjoyed the series!! I wish it was shown on a better night than it was….but DVR saved it for me. I hope to see it come back for at least 3 more seasons!! I hope everyone else feels the szme! Thanks for airing it! John Malkovich was awesome as Blackbeard but I do think you could use a better co-star. Just my honest opinion.

I wished they had included more of the pirate community, complete with the some the music, dance and general bawdiness and ill manners associated with pirates. Or even a pirate telling a tale about blackbeard would have added depth and color to his infamy.

Emma K’s thought about the producers including more of the pirate community and tales of Blackbeard is an excellent one. However, how can you expect the producers to think of something so common sense, when they schedule the series for FRIDAY at 10PM during the summer. Do THEY sit around watching television during the summer, late on a weekend evening? They should rerun it this Fall!

Please don’t cancel Crossbones. I loved the series especially Lowe.
