It was an underwhelming start for the new reality series. It tied with a repeat of The Middle on ABC for second place. If it dips in week two (as most new shows do), it’ll likely drop to third or fourth place. This premiere was less than half of what CBS saw from last summer’s Big Brother return.


Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. 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.

    Love this show. It would be a mistake to cancel this show as it helps us humans to get to know our canine friends and family better. It gets down to the real problems in relating to what our dogs really need from us. Justin is a real help in connecting the human world and the canine world together. Please don’t cancel!

    Please don’t take this show off. Everyone loves dogs and it is sich a good family show….unlike most of today’s TV!

    I absolutely love this show and can’t wait for the new season to start.
    Justin does a fantastic job with the owners as well as the dogs. I
    vote to renew this show!

    Saw every episode and loved the whole concept. My family and I were always wondering how we would be viewed if we were on the show since we have a pug that rules the roost and we spoil. Please bring it back for another season!

    LOVE this show! Please renew it and begin the new season as soon as possible. It was the best, new, interesting show that CBS has introduced in a long time that isn’t a crime procedure. I usually hate reality shows, but this one is great and I’ve learned so much.

  6. Donna says

    A show I finally enjoy and of course they kill that one. I have 3 dogs here and 1 watches every minute. Oh well Justin you made my week for a short time.

  7. Joyce says

    Renew without question. Not only are the tips helpful, but I enjoy seeing NY in a new light, and most importantly, this show can help save lives by encouraging people to adopt dogs from the overfilled shelters!

    We love this show! Justin has some great tips on how to correct multiple issues all dog lovers have with their dogs. I vote for RENEWING this shoe.
