Riot: Season One Ratings

Riot TV show ratings: cancel or renew?FOX is hoping that viewers find their new Riot TV series to be hilarious so that they keep watching each week. However, television is a serious business and it’s the ratings that matter. Will Riot be a ratings success and be renewed for a second season or, will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.

Hosted by Rove McManus, Riot is an unscripted show that pairs guest celebrities with a group of regular players for comedy song, dance, and sketch challenges. The regulars are John Ross Bowie, Jamie Denbo, Brian Palermo, Jordan Black, Jessica McKenna, Meryl Hathaway and Rob Gleeson.

The higher a show’s ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better its chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically the following morning, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

    I actually thought it was so silly that it was a great change of pace. It was funny & creative- made me laugh out loud;) …and frankly, I’d love to more of that on TV. Just my opinion, but it feels like an overwhelming amount of cop and doc shows along with reality (that is so far from reality) shows have taken over prime time. Don’t get me wrong, I have done the whole cop and doc thing- House! – CSI (wherever, you choose) – Law and Order
    (What kind of crime, your choice)… Good stuff… But doesn’t anybody want to watch something that doesn’t make you furrow your brow for an hour??? Jason Alexander & Cheryl Hines=funny. That’s all.

    This show is simply horrible. I just watched one of the episodes and it reminds me what my nieces and nephews watch on nickelodeon. This is simply child humour and if any adult watches this, they must have the mind of a child. Dreadful just dreadful. I now have wasted a half hour of my life.

    This show is sooooo bad it’s not funny, they do the Same thing just a different scenario each week, the guys are not good at making up stuff on the stop the in the dark think is so bad. Nothing funny about people walking around trying to describe what kind of place they are in. This show will never ever amount to whose line is it anyway. Please remove this asap!

    Great concept, terrible execution.

    Instead of quality performers as on Who’s Line Is It Anyway, this show has a bunch of second-rate nobodies. One celebrity guest is enough. The host shouldn’t interfere and direct the performers as he did throughout tonight’s episode. He also shouldn’t waste so much time with filler and explanations. Some games are just stupid, like the Mime Sweeper.
