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.

What do you think? Do you like the Golden Boy TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

I love Golden Boy. It’s one of my must see shows of the week. Love Theo James and have liked Chi McBride since Boston Public. Interesting future/present day format. Hope it stays.

My husband and I love GoldenBoy. We started watching after all the advertising for it and can’t wait each week for the next episode. Love all the characters and hope it will find a permanent place once Vegas returns. Love that show too. The whole venue with now and future takes is great. Please keep it on. Let’s give it a chance. If Law and Order and other shows can be on forever we should give this one a chance. Sick of reality tv so this is my choice. Thank you.

I am not usually a fan of crime drama shows, but I am already hooked on this one. From the flash back in the beginning to the flash forward ending where a comment is always made in reference to the past that leaves me going, “What?!”. Can’t wait for the next episode. Love it!

I LOOOOOVVVEEEE Golden Boy! I’m just sorry I can’t watch it on demand if I miss it. It’s got great writing and presents the story from an interesting perspective. Besides, it’s still beating the competition! Don’t give up on it- PLEASE!

My husband and I really enjoy the new show Golden Boy. I think it is well written and just needs a little time to catch on. I hope you will give it a chance, so many good shows have been cancelled before they had a real chance to find an audience.

I am a fan of Golden Boy. LOVE IT! Admittedly, I lean towards crime and detective shows, but I think it is inventive and good drama. Unfortunately I am outside the demographic TV execs think is important. No, it is not Bluebloods (which I also love), but we already have one of those. I am rooting for Golden Boy. Great ensemble cast and hope it is renewed. Besides, I shudder to think about what its replacement will be. Another lame, low budget reality series?
