Rookie Blue: New ABC Cop Show; Cancel or Keep It?

Rookie BlueABC recently premiered a new police series for the summer months called Rookie Blue. Many have compared it in concept to Southland on NBC (and now TNT). Will this one stick around long enough to see season two?

Rookie Blue revolves around five rookie cops who are plunged into world of big city policing. The ensemble cast of the drama includes Missy Peregrym (Reaper), Gregory Smith (Everwood), Eric Johnson (Flash Gordon), Ben Bass, Enuka Okuma, Travis Milne, Charlotte Sullivan, Matt Gordon, Noam Jenkins, and Melanie Nicholls-King.

The TV show debuted on June 24th to a 1.9 rating in the all-important 18-49 demographic and 7.24 million viewers. In the regular season, those numbers wouldn’t be cause for celebration but, in the summer months, they’re quite respectable. For the timeslot, the premiere ranked second in the demo and first in total viewers.

What do you think of Rookie Blue?

In week two, Rookie Blue bucked the usual trend and didn’t lose many viewers. The second episode brought in a 1.8 rating and 6.78 million viewers. If the series can sustain these numbers throughout its 13 episode season, it’s a good candidate for renewal and for returning next summer.

Also in its favor, Rookie Blue is produced in Canada through a joint venture between Canwest Broadcasting and ABC. That means it’s not costing the network as much as other scripted dramas.

What do you think? Is Rookie Blue worth watching? Would you like to see it return for season two or would you rather see it canceled?
