Resurrection: Cancel or Keep ABC’s Newest Show?

Resurrection TV show on ABC: canceled or renewed?ABC certainly needs some successful new shows and hasn’t had much luck this season. Shows like Once Upon a Time in Wonderland and Mind Games have already been cancelled while Betrayal surely will be. How about Resurrection? Will it be dropped or renewed for season two?

On Resurrection, a small town in Missouri is turned upside down when deceased loved ones start to return. The cast includes Omar Epps, Kurtwood Smith, Frances Fisher, Devin Kelley, Matt Craven, Samaire Armstrong, Mark Hildreth, Sam Hazeldine, and Landon Gimenez.

The series received a lot of promotion and launched early this month to a 3.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 13.9 million total viewers. That was a very impressive start — the highest-rated mid-season network debut in two years.

It’s not all good news however. In week two, the ratings dropped 19%. In week three, they dropped another 18%, to a 2.6 demo rating with 9.5 million.

While these declines are significant, the show’s ratings are still very healthy — particularly for Sunday nights. ABC has been having a lot of trouble on that night and Resurrection is the best news they’ve seen in awhile.

The next few weeks’ ratings will play a big role in deciding the show’s fate. As long as the numbers level off soon, it’s a safe bet that ABC will renew Resurrection. If they plummet, season two will be more of a longshot.

But what do you think? Have you been watching Resurrection? If you ran the network would you cancel the series or renew it for 2014-15?

Please do NOT cancel this show! This is a good thought provoking plot that needs better exposure. Everyone I have told about it LOVES its premise! Today, I cannot find it in my ABC listings! What’s up with that? No finale? Last episode was HUGE cliff hanger!

Clayton—Last week when the show was on there was something about it not being on for a couple of weeks or so. I do not remember what the return date was. I am like you…I hope they do not cancel this show, it’s one of my very favorites
