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.

    Yes, please renew. Very helpful info as well as entertaining. It’s very helpful to see another perspective. Not to mention how darn cute this guy is. But really, very helpful.

    My husband my I are very saddened that the series Dogs in the City has been canceled. We found that even after 44 years of raising dogs together, we always had enjoyed Justin Silver in this series. We never know everything in life and his problem solving and love of the dogs he worked with was refreshing, expecially in light of the “city” aspect to the show. We would love to see it come back in season two!!!

    I love the show, and hope there will be more of it. I go to Petsmart and talk to some of the people there and they didn’t know the show exists, but would watch it if they knew it was on. Please, please, please give it some time to build its very specialized audience.

      I agree Ann, I think it wasn’t given enough time to gather an audience of dog loving viewers. Please give it another chance, CBS!

    Please don’t cancel this show. So many people didn’t know about it but once I told them to watch they were hooked! I had 2 goldendoodles and a cat and this guy is by far the best trainer including that Cesar guy and such wonderful advice.

      Yes, I agree, I mean really CBS, you started a series in May when the weather starts getting better. Does CBS ever read this stuff?
