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.

    Please keep the show on. I DVR it as well. I love Dracula! The show is about Dracula. Love, suspense , etc. It’s not about modern vampires, which makes it totally different than the other shows. Dracula, was the beginning. The actors/actresses are amazing!!!! Please keep it on!!!!!!

    Thank you for not making this vampire sparkle. Brutal, cunning, charming, seductive and cutthroat. I enjoy the dynamics of all of the characters. The casting could not have been better. I hope to see many more seasons of this show.

      I have seen the numbers go up. They were very low but now it is a 4.3. Not a phenom, but substantial from what it was. Keep this show!

    I really hope NBC please keeps Dracula on the air! The show was a lovely surprise at first, and now the suspense at the end of every episode makes me anxious to watch more every week. Unfortunately, I work friday nights so I DVR the actual show time, which probably doesn’t help with the ratings. If they cancel this one, they would be making a big mistake and sadly lose a lot of fans in the process.

    LOVE this show!!! Love the acting and actors. Hope it stays on a long long time!!!! Don’t cancel the series, we love it!!!!!!

    Best show ever! I hope it will last for at least one more season. Please no more shows about police and crime in NYC, emergency room doctors and people coming to LA to find boyfriends. Finally something classic, romantic and exciting. Great retake on Dracula’s story. My favorite Dracula so far was Frank Langella, But JRM is also doing a great job! And I especially enjoy the twist on Van Helsing!
    Please NBC, don’t cancel it. Why only people with HBO or Showtime can watch interesting shows? We, regular viewers want them too! We don’t want any more Desperate Housewives, Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, Shields, Grey’s anatomy itp. We want to come home and see something like Downtown Abbey, Tudors and Game of Thrones! Dracula is the best show now on TV. Surely people say the plot is predictable, the story was told many times itp. But how many times can you watch people being shot by criminal, police looking for DNA, and accident victim being pushed into ED. Or even worst, woman shopping all the time for designer clothes and fighting for boyfriends.
    We want something good for change like Dracula!
    Thank you!

    When I first saw the ads for the show, I thought “uh oh, another boring and useless take on the whole done-to-death Dracula thing”. But then I watched and now I’m hooked! I think it is original, I love Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the lead, and the storylines are simple to follow which to me is preferable over the crazy super-detailed “vampire mythologies” that pervade other modern vampire shows. I love the tie-back into medeival history’s real Vlad Tepes (it was about time!). The sets and costuming are stunning and a joy to watch. And another thing worth mentioning–my husband absolutely HATES vampire shows, but even he really seemed to like this show when he watched it with me over the last couple episodes. Now that’s a real testament to Dracula’s power to “put the bite” on TV viewers willing to give it a chance….

    Are you people even watching the same show…?

    I watched 4 episodes and gave up. Bad scripting, wooden acting, atrocious plot (what there is of it)… No sympathy or empathy for the characters… it’s like waiting paint dry without the excitement!

    Bound to be cancelled, Utter rubbish!

    • Carol says

      I think the people who dislike this are in the minority lately. No plot?? Wooden acting??? I don’t think so. Try watching S.H.I.E.L.D- you’ll appreciate this show 100% more. Now that’s bad everything and is renewed.

    I am addicted to this series. All fingers crossed that NBC renews it for another season. Love the tension and interaction between all the characters. Can’t wait for the next episode. Please, NBC, give it a chance and keep it on.

    I wasn’t sure if I would watch after the first episode but each week it has improved. It actually has a story line, fine acting and I enjoy how the original concept by Stoker, has been reworked and improved.
    The problem is the time slot-Fridays at 10pm. I generally DVR it and then watch it at a later . The ratings above indicate it is beginning to do better. I feel it if had a better time slot it would skyrocket.
    I was very disappointed to see this show will not have another new episode until January 3rd-just as the audience was building.
    If it does get cancelled, I hope another network will pick it up.
    In a sea of Vampire Shows, this one is classy, aimed at adults rather than teens and appears to have some depth and character development.
