Justified: Season Four Ratings

Justified season four ratingsJustified has been one of FX’s most successful shows in the ratings. Will the series’ audience continue to grow, stay the same, or drop so that it could actually be in danger of being cancelled? The latter seems unlikely but we’ll have to watch the ratings to find out.

Currently in its fourth season, this critically-acclaimed TV show revolves around Deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) as he works to maintain order. The rest of the cast includes Erica Tazel, Jacob Pitts, Joelle Carter, Natalie Zea, Nick Searcy, and Walton Goggins.

The ratings are the best way to tell if Justified will be cancelled or renewed for a fifth season. The fourth season typically airs on Tuesday nights on FX. There are 13 installments once again.

    I think Justified is one of the best show I have seen. The casting is perfect. The writing is superb!! This is the only show that I never take my eyes away from. The actors are so good at telling us more with their facial expressions and I don’t want to miss it. The language of the show is awesome. My friend who told me to watch it warned that I would be talking like Boyd soon! I only wish I could turn a simple reply into poetry. This show should be on forever!!!

    I think justified is one of the best written shows on TV today.. Great story lines, with amazing acting by every one of the series characters. I can’t imagine why this show wouldn’t return for another season.

    The show is so multi layered. The characters continue to develop and build their personna. Yes, Timothy and Waldon carry the show, but Nick, Erica and Jacob enhance the subplots. They have some of the most unique character actors on any dramatic show. It has got legs to easily go another 2-3 years. It is my favorite show!

    Been a follower since season 2. Last night’s show was pretty good, never saw the make up of the group at the church’s tent coming…nice surprise. Did Eva sneak out or was she let go? As to the Detroit/Dixie mob finally getting after Raylan (pain in their butts) through the mother of his daughter…low blow, but predictable…and should unleash the wrath of Raylan to another level…or does he manage to give them something that ensures his family’s long term safety…looking forward to seeing it play out. Not sure this show could continue without Boyd tho…with all of the other junk on TV, Justified must go on. Besides Limehouse is such a deep mystery we haven’t spend enough time with this character. GREAT DRAMA

    PLEASE DO NOT cancel “Justified”!!!! This is the only show on TV that I “CRAVE” to watch, and I go through withdrawals in between seasons. BEST show on TV in my opinion! FX….renew Justified for a 5th season…and more!

  6. Linda says

    Please please give us comfort by telling us that in fact Justified has been renewed for season 5 and since they want to do 6 seasons, give us a blanket order for 2 more seasons. Season 4 was so great and with only 2 more episodes…we have to know we will see our Raylan Givens again.

  7. bookperson39 says

    How’s about they renew it for two seasons, 5 & 6?? With all the critical hoopla about it, that’s the least they can do!

    OUTSTANDING SHOW. I do not watch a lot of tv, because there’s usually nothing on that’s worth watching. Justified is the best show ever…I actually look forward to this show every Tues nite. I have cancelled hair appts just so I don’t miss a show! The stories, lines, and actors are all top notch. This show is meant to go more seasons!! Just don’t change the writers or main characters. There’s always a twist or incident that keeps you glued and on the edge of your seat, witty lines and unexpected scenarios. Timothy Olyphant’s hand is in the producing…you can see it. You must promise a Season 5. (-:

    Best show on , bought seasons 1-3 , can not wait until Tue, to see it, my husband likes it to and that is rare, also family members in TX love it, Please leave it on, hate the biggest loser etc shows, could also be that I am from KY. LOVE IT really one of the better shows on and we have been around for awhile, in our seventy’s.
    Acting is great, you don’t want some of the bad guy’s to die, now is telling you something.
