The Mentalist: Season Six Ratings

The Mentalist TV show ratings: cancel or renew?Last season, despite a move to Sunday nights and a big drop in the ratings, CBS renewed The Mentalist for a sixth season. Will the ratings continue to fall? Will CBS bring the show back for a seventh year? Stay tuned!

On The Mentalist, Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) continues to help the CBI solve cases while he seeks to bring his family’s killer to justice. Also starring in the show are Robin Tunney, Tim Kang, Owain Yeoman, Amanda Righetti, Emily Swallow, and Rockmond Dunbar.

So many shows are being cancelled with out trying to tie up the plots we have invested time into. As an avid viewer of many series getting to wait all summer or thru all the different seasons of shows to see what happens next. You get invested and all the anticipation just to find out another cliff hanger will continue to hang in limbo or your imagination forever. Come on finish out the shows even if its in a 2 hour finale or 2 part but at least finish them.

Despite a move to Sunday night??? What planet are you from? If you want to kill a show
put it on Sunday night following Sunday Night Football and the every rinky dink award show. More often than not this show came on well after it’s time slot. Most people have to work on Monday. They can’t be waiting up all night long to watch a TV show. Please put this show on in a time slot that is dependable. There aren’t that many good shows on TV. This happens to be one of them.

The mentalists is the best show on TV. Simon and his co actors are all good actors and
the show itself is very pleasant and refreshing after all the killings, violence, and sexual
things happening on other shows. Before canceling they should try another night at 9:00
It was on Thursday nights. How did it rate then? Please find a way to keep this show on!!
