King & Maxwell: Cancel or Keep the TNT Series?

king and maxwell: cancel or renew?Tonight, TNT airs the last episode of King & Maxwell’s first season. Should the cop series return for a second season or should it be cancelled instead? Is it a ratings hit? Cancel or keep it?

King & Maxwell takes place in Washington, DC and revolves around a pair of former Secret Service agents (Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn) who’ve become private eyes. Co-stars in the series include Ryan Hurst, Michael O’Keefe, and Chris Butler.

The show debuted on June 10th to 3.52 million viewers with a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That was a very positive start. Viewership fell 21% in week two but climbed back upward in later weeks.

A couple weeks ago, King & Maxwell nearly matched its premiere with 3.39 million and a 0.5 demo rating.

While the new show isn’t as popular as Major Crimes (4.82 million) or Rizzoli & Isles (5.66 million), it’s nearly matching fellow TNT dramas Falling Skies and Perception (3.53 million apiece).

Though they haven’t announced it yet, I suspect that TNT will bring King & Maxwell back for a second season.

But, what do you think? Does King & Maxwell deserve a second season? Or, should it be cancelled to make way for something else? Cancel or keep?
