Manhattan: Season One Ratings

Manhattan TV show on WGN: latest ratingsWGN America is still very new to producing their original scripted series so it’s hard to know what they consider a ratings success. Salem was renewed for a second season. Will the new Manhattan series be renewed as well or will it be cancelled? We’ll have to wait and see.

Set in 1943, Manhattan follows the residents of a secret town of Los Alamos, New Mexico. Hidden away by the federal government, scientists live there with their families while they work to build the world’s first atomic bomb. The cast includes John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams, Alexia Fast, Ashley Zukerman, Rachel Brosnahan, Daniel Stern, Katja Herbers, Christopher Denham, Harry Lloyd, Michael Chernus, Eddie Shin, Daniel London, and Mark Moses.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

10/14 update: Manhattan has been renewed for a second season on WGN America.

Final season averages: 0.08 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 420,000 total viewers.

Keep this series. It is great. My father was an engineer at one of these sites. My mother was terrified all the time. It is a very realistic show. I want to see more.

I have to watch the second season, it’s such an addictive show. Dr. Winter and Dr. Issacs, poor Dr. Akley–reminds me of my military service. Occam is just plain creepy! Love it!

I enjoy Manhattan as much as any show on AMC. I didn’t even know I had WGN until I found Manhattan. I hope it has at least 5 years.


Karen October 27, 2014 at 9:20 pm

This is a great show and I am thrilled it will be renewed.

WGN ran all of the episodes all day Sunday Oct, 26 which I recorded. Each episode lasted an hour but there seemed to be less commercials than on the regular episodes during the year. I watched 3 of them and the stories seemed longer and more satisfying. This leads me to believe parts of the regular episodes were cut to accommodate the commercials. Looking forward to watching the rest of the episodes again.
