Law & Order: SVU: Season 15 Ratings

law and order svu ratingsUnbelievable as it may sound, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit has returned for its 15th season on the air. It’s stuck around because it continues to be one of NBC’s top-rated shows. How long will that continue? Will show be renewed for a 16th season or be cancelled instead? We shall see.

Law & Order: SVU follows an elite squad of detectives who investigate sexually based crimes in New York City. This season, the cast includes Mariska Hargitay, Ice-T, Dann Florek, Richard Belzer, Danny Pino, and Kelli Giddish.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

For comparisons: The 14th season of Law & Order: SVU averaged a 1.7 rating in the demo and 6.40 million viewers.

Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you still like the SVU TV series? Would you like to see it cancelled or renewed for 16th season?

Please renew law and order svu. It is a wonderful crime drama with always interesting story lines. I do have to agree that it was great when Detective Stabler was part of the group. Do have to mention that I thought it was ridiculous that Detective Cragen had to leave because of his age. Detective Olivia Benson is awesome and she makes the show. If they ask her to leave or she leaves on her own, you might as well cancel the show. I hope they take care of her too. Again, it was a mistake to get rid of Detective Cragen

I think this show should have never been renewed because its obvious the characters lost their heart after Stabler left.

Don’t get me wrong. I love SVU…. But when the characters changed, it wasn’t the same. I watched SVU all the time because I love how Benson and Stabler worked together. But now that Stablers gone… Its not the same. And the new characters are garbage. I think it should be canceled

I don’t know what I’d do if this were last season of SVU. PLEASE RENEW! These characters are not only amazing but truly beloved among viewers, the “newbies” were picked exceptionally and have caught on quite brilliantly to the traditional vibe of the show. I especially love Ice-T and Mariska’s character bonding as they become the last originals on set. Mariska’s character, still growing, is role-model to all. Definitely still miss Stabler but the show has done the best with cutbacks in original cast members and “change” than I ever thought they could have. And overall they still continue to tell powerful stories that reach out to real people. Still a great show and remains unmatched.
