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.

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.

I would like to see it renewed. It is better than ever.

CBS is sorely trying my loyalty here. Messing with The Mentalist really ticks me off. Waiting forEVer thru the not-so-Amazing Race to get to The Good Wife and then finally The Mentalist often very late on a Sunday night…and then all the other specials pre-empting . Yet they wonder where the ratings went? Give The Good Wife and The Mentalist a break and put them on a weekday night at 9 and 10. Wouldn’t mind the goofy but one-liner funny 2 Broke Girls at 8:30 beforehand. And Intelligence….boy did CBS sucker-punch them. A night of family foolish comedy audiences rolls into a new show with a wholly different genre like Intelligence. Like it or not–and I do–their slot was terrible. Intelligence likely would have done better around Person of Interest instead. CBS needs programming help.

Renew. The ratings are better than some of the others shows that are staying on

The Mentalist cancelled? SAY IT ISN’T SO! If CBS wants to kill a show by moving it to Sunday, move NCIS: LA there to die. Whatever crap they replace it with can’t be half as good. If CBS is really that dumb, please some other network pick it up.

Since the end of the Red John thread and the move to Austin, the series is better than ever! No series can survive the crazy Sunday night CBS shenanigans of schedule changes. Give it a chance to attract a new audience by putting it on at a stable night and time. There’s a paucity of decent, thought-provoking programs on non cable channels. Keep Patrick Jane!

Very true. How can any real rating of the show be done by the network when the show is always preempted by a football game or basketball all season long? Put it back on Tuesdays at 9pm and get rid of NCIS Los Angeles.
