When ratings powerhouse Sunday Night Football is finished on NBC, the Sunday editions of Dateline return to help fill the void. The ratings have typically been quite poor. Will this trend turnaround? We shall see.
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.
Note: If you’re not seeing the updated charts, please try reloading the page. You can also see them here.
For comparisons: The Sunday editions of the 22nd season of Dateline averaged a 1.3 rating in the demo and 5.16 million 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 Dateline TV series? Would you like to see it cancelled or renewed for a 24th season?
