Parenthood: Season Five Ratings

Parenthood season five ratingsThough it’s been in danger of being cancelled each year, Parenthood has survived for five seasons. Will it see a sixth year or will this be the end? We’ll have a better idea as the weeks progress.

Airing on NBC since 2010, Parenthood revolves around the lives of the extended Braverman family in Northern California. The ensemble cast includes Lauren Graham, Dax Shepard, Tyree Brown, Joy Bryant, Max Burkholder, Erika Christensen, Miles Heizer, Sam Jaeger, Monica Potter, Savannah Paige Rae, Xolo Mariduena, Mae Whitman, with Bonnie Bedelia and Craig T. Nelson.

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 fourth season of Parks and Recreation averaged a 1.8 rating in the demo and 4.98 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 Parenthood TV series? Would you like to see it cancelled or renewed for a sixth season?

I’m hoping NBC gives us at least one more season if Parenthood. It has those same qualities that made shows like Hill Street Blues and Friday Night Lights special: great writing and acting and issues and themes that most finis can relate to. Like FNL it also has great music and scenery.

It’s just so well done. I’m just afraid that NBC gone too far down the reality programming rabbit hole. Hope I’m wrong about that.

Please renew Parenthood! We need more shows about family, struggles, joys, and life. There are more than enough “reality” shows. I’m old enough to know life’s problems aren’t always solved in 24 minutes ( plus commercials). Let my generation have one show that is more “reality” than most of the touted “reality” shows out there.
