The Good Wife: Season Five Ratings

The Good Wife ratings: cancel or renew?Last season, The Good Wife saw a big drop in the ratings but CBS renewed it anyway, most likely because of syndication profits. Will the numbers rise this season? Will the show be renewed for a sixth season or will it be cancelled instead? We shall see.

On The Good Wife, Alicia (Julianna Margulies) continues to work out her tricky personal life while trying to win cases for her firm’s clients. Others in the cast include Josh Charles, Christine Baranski, Archie Panjabi, Matt Czuchry, Graham Phillips, Makenzie Vega, Alan Cumming, and Zach Grenier.

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

Done be foolish, this show is to good to be cancelled. The Good Wife at its worst is far better than any other CBS series.

Show’s getting wonderfully complex! The key demographic, among our friends, 40+, is intelligence and money! Keep it up CBS — just bog the Irishman!

I’m a brand new fan. It’s an amazing cast-intelligent, heart-felt, I hope it continues.

The Good Wife is an amazing show! Probably my favourite! I’m excited for the 5th season and only hope CBS renew for season 6. I’d be devistated if they didn’t. I’m totally hooked and have all the DVDs. Cannot wait for the next installment!!

I can’t believe CBS was stupid enough to put it up against Breaking Bad’s finale!


Lumpy October 27, 2013 at 10:09 pm
