Hostages: Season One Ratings

Hostages TV show on CBS: canceled or renewed?CBS is advertising Hostages as a “limited series” with 15 episodes. If the ratings are poor, will it be cancelled before they all air? Or, if it’s a big hit, will they find a way to make a second season? Time will tell.

On Hostages, the lives of a prominent surgeon’s family are threatened by terrorists who want her to kill the President of the United States. The cast of this thriller includes Toni Collette, Dylan McDermott, James Naughton, Rhys Coiro, Billy Brown, Sandrine Holt, Tate Donovan, Quinn Shephard, and Mateus Ward.

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. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). 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.

Great show! I am assuming it’s cancelled though — they tied up all the loose ends in the tw0-hour finale. Would like to see the show continue though.

we LOVE this show. They could start next season with another story line and end it by completing the story like this year. Loved the way it ended too! Way to go!

Sure hope this series comes back-we really enjoyed it a lot…looked forward to it every week. With so much junk on tv we found ourselves drawn to Hostages. Just when you thought you could predict what was coming, there was a surprise twist…hopeful for another season…

Please keep show on Dylan McDermott had always been my favorite, and Toni Collette is a wonderful actress. For once bring it back.

This is one of the best shows that I’ve seen since ” 24 ” on FoxTV. Wonderful plot and actors. Please do not listen to the negative people giving their opinion of the show. This is a show that keeps a person screaming at the television of the happenings of the events of the show. Please give ” The Hostages ” a second season.

I agree. I thought about ’24’ on fox tv. Just like watching 24, it kept me hoping for Monday night to come.

This show has been a good drama with good acting and actors. It would be nice to see it continue but based on the final episodes it appears that the die is cast as all loose ends have been tied.

The real reason this show’s gonna get cancelled is ’cause the premise was preposterous. Sexual tension with Dylan & Toni, after he & his cohorts level a gun to her children’s skulls…? And, how ’bout the neighbors? Oh, I forgot, these folks live in a vacuum on their street, even if Toni’s to perform open surgery on a sitting President of the United States… Give me a break.

Keep your promise of a one season show. It IS a great to drag it on will make it less great. How can you not jump the shark when it was planned as a one season show.
