Hell on Wheels: Season Four Ratings

Hell on Wheels TV show on AMC: ratingsLast year, AMC moved Hell on Wheels to Saturday nights, leading many to believe the show would be cancelled.

Will it be renewed for a fifth season or will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned!

The cast includes Anson Mount, Common, Colm Meaney, Phil Burke, Christopher Heyerdahl, Robin McLeavy, Kasha Kropinski, Dohn Norwood, Jennifer Ferrin, Chelah Horsdal, MacKenzie Porter, Tayden Marks, and Jake Weber.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

As noted above in the writer’s section, HonW has been renewed for 5th and final season. In my opinion, this year was a mess. It just did not seem to have an ongoing connection each week throughout the season. It seemed like there were 2 or 3 sets of writers, each with their own story line. It was not so bad that I would quit watching, but if someone were just now tuning in, they may not see the attraction of the show. Again, these are just my opinions. I assume the series will wrap up with the completion of the railroad. Hopefully, Cullen Bohanan will find peace.

The problem is AMC fault. This show had legs and could have been a huge hit but infighting and uncertainty after each season pisses viewers off. We invest out time in a show and waiting months and months for another season whilst rumors about cancelation run rampant viewers lose interest, why bother why invest. It’s a shame it was one of the best TV shows ever. Tamer than Deadwood but well acted and a great story line. Could have gone 8-10 seasons easily. Note to all networks…. Ride the wave.

Why cancel a show that is still marketable and still give a touch of history and there is not a show on TV like this. Western. From the hills of east Tennessee
