Dracula: Season One Ratings

Dracula TV show on NBC ratingsThe peacock network has found ratings success with the dark Grimm series on Friday nights. Is there room for another spooky thriller or will Dracula be cancelled quickly like so many other series? Stay tuned!

NBC’s Dracula is a retelling of the classic Bram Stoker story. In London, Dracula (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is posing as an American entrepreneur while he seeks revenge on those who cursed him. He doesn’t count on falling in love with a woman (Jessica De Gouw) who looks just like his deceased wife. Others in the cast include Thomas Kretschmann, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Victoria Smurfit, Katie McGrath, and Nonso Anozie.

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.

    Brilliant show, well written, fantastic atmosphere / visuals and amazing performances. it would be a crime to not renew for a second season.

    I love this show. Its actually an adult vampire show unlike vampire diaries which is aimed towards a younger audience. Its nice to have a more realistic vampire instead of him turning into bats.

    I hope they renew this one and new character if ever, like Dr. Victor Frakenstein, he’ll be a good help for the experiment they’re doing to make Greyson walk on sunlight for a longer time….

    Absolutely LOVE this show! I will be devastated if it’s canceled! Jonathan Rhys Meyers is one of my favorites, I waited nearly a year for the first episode. And each week, by Saturday morning I am already tired of waiting for the next episode. I think it deserves at least one more season to prove its worth to the rest of the world. Please don’t cancel Dracula before it has had a chance to catch on.

    Please renew this show! The acting is wonderful, the writing is nuanced and subtle. I am always pleased to note that there are several levels at play at any one moment. The sets are wonderful and the love story compelling. I would love to see more of it.

    I absolutely am obsessed with the devotion Dracula carries for his true love. Such a magnificent story, well-written indeed. It seems shows cannot stay on the air anymore that have such quality writing and creativity. Just the thought of it being cancelled makes me sad.

    Please renew. This is a great show: the writing, the cast, the story, the set…

    As Jim Ryan touched on, we need intelligent entertainment.

    I look forward to Friday night TV now because of Dracula and will be devastated if NBC doesn’t see the long term potential of this fantastic show. Bringing such a superb group of actors together, combining them with lavish sets, stunning costumes, and an interesting take on the Dracula lore was a brilliant concept. Lets hope the head honchos who were smart enough to greenlight the series will take a risk and RENEW FOR SEASON TWO! An actor of Rhys Meyer’s status can certainly grow the numbers if given proper time. NBC: please don’t blow it.

    I love this show, and I’m in the 18-49 demo, but as a mom, I don’t get out often on Friday nights. I really hope it is renewed.

    Please do not cancel Dracula! It is without a doubt one of the best TV shows of the moment. Although it is not exactly faithful to the original story, the changes are very interesting and good and the way the story is being told is intoxicating and addictive. The acting is very good, the actors play their parts wonderfully. The show is written in an intelligent way, full of references to the real Vlad Tepes, Sarcasm, Irony and Intelligence. It is truly a show written for intelligent people and true fans, a show people truly count minutes to next episode. It would be a true shame if it was cancelled.
