Kristen Bell and Ted Danson are television show veterans who’ve each had their fair share of TV successes and disappointments. How will The Good Place do in the ratings for NBC? A hit or a flop? Cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
On The Good Place, Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) is an ordinary woman who enters the afterlife and, thanks to some kind of error, is sent to the Good Place instead of the Bad Place (where she belongs). While hiding in plain sight from the wise architect of the Good Place, Michael (Ted Danson), Eleanor’s determined to shed her old ways and discover the better person inside. The rest of the cast includes D’Arcy Carden, Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto, and William Jackson Harper.
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.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
