Person of Interest: Season Three Ratings

Person of Interest season three ratingsThis season, CBS has moved Person of Interest to Tuesday nights. Will the ratings fall off as a result or will they grow because of a stronger lead-in? Let’s wait and see.

On Person of Interest, former CIA officer John Reese (Jim Caviezel) and billionaire Harold Finch (Michael Emerson) continue to work together to prevent violent crimes in the Big Apple. Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Chapman, Sarah Shahi, and Amy Acker round out the cast.

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.

    While some may have stated they thought the show has gotten too complex to follow, I don’t see it, though it requires one pays attention. It has one of the best storylines of any regular show on presently. I hope they renew for next year, cuz they left a lot of loose ends and managed to save the machine, so it seems hopeful.

    I used to like Person of Interest, but it has become too complicated. Not only that, but the music drowns out the dialog (especially Caviezel’s mumbling) so the plot becomes unfathomable. Get rid of the music, or get rid of the show.

      I agree 100% the talk to soft and they think that noise makes it more interesting. Wrong answer. John talks soft and sometimes you don’t get his last word. OK I’m older. we won’t be watching next year

    This will probably be my last last comment on the subject. Just binged watched Empire on FOX, particularly last night’s John Singleton directed episode. Love the Cookie Momster! It seems as though the producers of Person of Interest did Miss Taraji P. Henson a favor. On behalf of the viewers of Empire, thank you.

    I would like the show to keep going.
    WHAT I DID LIKE IS THAT SO CALL MUSIC, TO IT IS NOTHING BUT NOISE. YOU CAN’T EVEN HEAR WHAT THE ACTORS ARE SAYING. Why do the have to blow our ears off. I think you need to put that so called music director in a room put the head set on him and turn it up full blast, so he can see how it sounds. He don’t know beans about music. this isn’t even making you feel the excitement. Oh well you won’t change all the other show are about the same. Can’t even hear anything only that noise.

        we’ll we will see how you like it when you can’t hear at all. All this loud noise is killing
        your hearing fast. I’m old I agree but I like this show but can’t enjoy it when they play all that loud noise it is not music in my book. So I still say cut the music down a lot.
