Here are the ratings for the Free Agents TV series. This romantic workplace comedy follows two public relations execs (Hank Azaria and Kathryn Hahn) who find themselves single and attracted to one another. They have a drunken one-night stand and then try to stay professional at work. The first season of Free Agents typically airs on Wednesday nights at 8:30pm on the NBC network.
These are the TV show’s ratings for the 2011-12 season, the best way to tell if Free Agents is going to be cancelled or renewed for season two. Check out our NBC ratings report card to see how this show’s numbers compare with the others on the network.
These figures will be updated as the weeks progress so be sure to bookmark and return to this page:
Episode 01-04: Wednesday, 10/5/11
1.0 in the demo (0% week-to-week change) with 3.25 million; fourth place in the timeslot.
Demo average rank: #9 of 11 scripted TV shows currently on the network.
Season average: 1.4 in the demo with 4.08 million.
Episode 01-03: Wednesday, 9/28/11
This ship is sinking fast. Week three dropped another 23% in the demographic to a 1.0 demo rating and 3.07 million viewers. How long before NBC cancels this one?
Season average: 1.5 demo with 4.35 million.
Episode 01-02: Wednesday, 9/21/11
Episode two fell a whopping 38% in the 18-49 demo to a 1.3 rating with just 3.87 million viewers. It was in fourth place in the timeslot, not performing much better than The CW’s doomed H8R series. In addition, Free Agents lost 46% of its lead-in audience. Viewers are clearly rejecting this sitcom.
Season average: 1.7 demo with 5.0 million.
Episode 01-01: Wednesday, 9/14/11
The first episode aired at 10:30pm, following the season finale of highly-rated America’s Got Talent and fellow newbie sitcom Up All Night. Free Agents registered a 2.1 in the 18-49 demographic and 6.12 million viewers. That was a disappointing performance, especially considering that the second 15 minutes of lead-in Up All Night brought in a 3.3 in the demo. In addition, Free Agents lost nearly one million viewers between the start and end of the episode. Those people stopped watching midway through the show and won’t likely return to see the next episode. Not a good start.
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.
