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.

    THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS ON TV! Each episode keeps you on the edge of your seat seat! The hour flies by entirely toooo fast. Just know that FX will renew this great show!

    My Husband and I love it and we don’t miss an episode. We love that is set on the other side of our home state.

    Keep it cause where else on TV are you going to get an Elmore Leonard inspired program. Still waiting for the back story of the 1st Episode, cause that shooting was personal.

    My husband and I love JUSTIFIED! Raylan has swagger and a good heart. We look forward to seeing this show every week. Do NOT cancel “Justified.”

  5. Linda says

    This season with the mystery of Drew Thompson and the great Raylan Givens is the best season….so far. Keeping Raylan and Boyd to the 5th episode was inspired and perfect. Now they are after the same man but for such different reasons. The show just keeps getting better…if that is possible. And if the ratings are low…moving Justified around mid-season only angers we devoted Justified fans. Respect us.

    . My husband and I don’t miss an episode. The good looking US Marshal Raylan Givens is so talented and his follow colleagues. Looking forward to an awesome fourth and fifth and so on season!!

  7. TB says

    A great show! FX should not even be considering cancelling this series. The story line is fantastic, great acting, lots of new talent and look forward to each new episode.

    My wife and I both love Justified. I wonder if Timothy Olyphant has anything to do with that?I HAve to throw something at her when he is on the screen!
