Adventurer and survivalist Bear Grylls has had a couple TV shows on NBC so far. Get Out Alive was cancelled after one season while Running Wild with Bear Grylls has been renewed and will return in July. Will The Island have good enough ratings to be asked back for a second season? Stay tuned.
On The Island, 14 American men answer the question: Can a man of today’s world survive on a deserted island without the luxuries — or even the basics — of contemporary everyday life? Unlike other reality shows, there are no prizes, no eliminations, no winners, and no camera teams. Everything viewers see has been filmed by the men themselves.
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.

Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
