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.

What do you think? Do you like the King & Maxwell series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

    My wife and I love the show. Great chemistry among the characters, and the suspense continues to grow with each episode. Please renew!

    I enjoyed this series! Please renew for another season or two or three. I’ve read most of David Baldacci’s books, so I was anxiously awaiting this series. Baldacci’s books have been long overdue a TV series and glad to finally see it. They could keep us entertained for years. I was surprised when Sean King’s character wasn’t a bulkier man, but the personalities work well together. Edgar is a scream, and oh so technically intelligent. I just love this TV show; please bring ’em on!

    Jeanne, SPOILER ALERT…..in the books (can’t remember which one, they finally end up romantically linked (kind of like Rick Castle with Kate Beckett in CASTLE).

      I LOVE this show. No vulgarity, no gruesome crime scenes, no body parts in the mail.
      The characters, Sean and Michelle, are real, Edgar is a DEAR and his “Hot Damn” warms my heart. The plots are good and the ongoing assignation investigation, threaded throughout their other jobs, adds interest. Sean and Michelle DO NOT need to have romantic chemistry [like Becket and Castle] to make an extraordinary team. Their care and concern for Edgar is touching and helps him realize his potential and blossom as an individual [friendship with Benny]. Keep the gun out of Sean’s hand. The FBI personnel are great foils and add balance. Please Renew

    Yes…Yes…and YES this show should be kept on the air!!!! One the day it aired I didn’t even have intentions on watching, but I caught a few minutes of it after major crimes went off, and I’ve been hooked ever since!!! I love the “Unspoken” chemistry between King and Maxwell, and I love Edgar’s personality as well. (I always laugh when he saids “Hot Damn”!!) And even the FBI dude is starting to grow on me too.
    Honestly, I would be crushed if this show was tanked, it has great potential, and I would like to see where it going. And please for the love of God KEEP IT ON TNT!!!!! :)

    Definitely should be renewed. Chemistry between Tenney and Romijn is excellent. Hurst is awesome as Evan. Good premise; really good writing.

    Needs another 13 episodes for sure. Fast-paced, logical and most of all….entertaining.
