It was a pretty good start for the show — not a big hit and not a bomb out of the gate.


Cable ratings are typically released within a day or so of the show’s airing, except for in the case of weekends and holidays. They are sometimes harder to come by so there may be occasional delays or gaps.

    This is one of the best shows you have put on since The Closer. I am not a fan of Major Crimes. The lead person just can’t cut it. The other cast memeber s are great.

  2. Amy says

    Please, please, please renew the show! Great cast, great characters. My entire family looks forward to watching and we will miss Sean and Michelle on Monday nights until they are back.

  3. RP says

    Love this show. Great chemistry with whole cast. Edgar is priceless. It’s one of the few I look forward to. Just feels good. Please keep it on the air.

  4. Sue says

    “King & Maxwell” should be renewed. They have great chemistry, good storylines and just fun to watch. Come on TNT, please don’t drag your feet and let a good show fall by the wayside. I’m sure I’m not alone in wanting to see more!

    I love this show, and look forward to it each week. Please keep it on the air. The cast has a great chemistry together, and that is very hard to find. I love the interactions between the different characters, especially Sean and Edgar, they are great.

  6. Michelle Sean says

    King and Maxwell is wonderful. Do not understand why they haven’t announce renewal? It brings in more viewers than Breaking Bad seasons 1-4.

  7. Cheri Ross says

    King and Maxwell should definitely be renewed. My husband and I both love it. We think the writing is very good, and we enjoy the whole cast. The addition of Edgar and Bennie truly contributes to the show’ s excellent dynamic. The Powers-That-Be really need to give the show time to build its audience.

    I read all of Baldacci’s books – especially loved Sean and Michelle. Jon and Rebecca have terrific chemistry and my whole family enjoy the show. We don’t miss it. Love Edgar too. I don’t watch too much TV so I hope it is renewed.

    The math doesn’t seem correct on this entry- viewership on 7/15 was DOWN by .75 so not sure how that equates to a 9% increase?

      Thanks for noticing the inconsistency. The July 15th viewership should read 3.09 million, not 2.09 million. The percentages and averages were still correct.

    Well, we all know if everyone likes something it probably won’t make it, but let’s keep our fingers crossed for a second season of King And Maxwell!!!
