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.

    I truly enjoy this show. Its one of the better new series and would be a shame if it is renewed. Besides the great concept and talented actors, the lead chacter is gorgeous.

  2. Mme Walch says

    I genuinely enjoy this show and I truly hope it does not get cancelled. I have to DVR it due to the time it is on but I look forward to watching each new episode.

  3. Charles Verderame says

    I think the show should be renewed. The relationship of Don and Junior is worth the entire series. Show has great potential. Give it time to grow its audience.

  4. Bob B says

    wow – fast pace, lots of subplots – can’t wait to see what happens to his protagonist fellow officer! So – how does he make it to top cop in 7 years?? Keep it coming!!

    I love Golden Boys and hope that CBS will renew it. I find it to be getting more intriging with each week that passes.

    I usually do not stay up to watch tv past 10 pm but I find myself hooked to this storyline.
    I hope CBS keeps this in the line up. I really enjoy the acting as well!

  7. Tash says

    I do like this show a lot. Comes on after my 1st and 2nd favorite shows on basic tv. Golden boy if given a chance will can be just as strong and popular if it isn’t cancelled right away. Interesting way to get the audience hooked. Would be a shame to not see where the writers go years 2 thru 7
