The Middle: Season Five Ratings

The Middle season five ratingsWhile some shows get a lot of press and hype, The Middle has remained a quiet success for ABC. Last season, it was their fourth highest-rated scripted show. Will the ratings remain high or will they fall in season five? Could it be cancelled or is it guaranteed a sixth season, thanks to syndication profits? Stay tuned to find out.

The Middlefollows the Heck family from a small town in Indiana as they try their best to get ahead. They’re played by Patricia Heaton, Neil Flynn, Charlie McDermott, Eden Sher, and Atticus Shaffer.

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.

Patricia Heaton is ungrateful toward her fans. She’ll snub you if you approach her in public. I don’t think she realizes who makes her famous. It’s the fans, Pat, the fans !

It’s run its course. Patricia Heaton has lost her timing and her Character of Debra on ELR will always overshadow any character she plays. Cancel before it becomes even more stale than it is now.
