You would think having the top sitcom as a lead-in would guarantee ratings success for The Millers. Not necessarily — just look at cancelled shows like $#*! My Dad Says and How to be a Gentleman. Will this new Will Arnett comedy be a hit or will it be cancelled after one season like many others? Stay tuned.
The Millers follows a local newsman (Arnett) who’s been hiding his recent divorce from his parents. When they hear the news, his dad (Beau Bridges) leaves his mom (Margo Martindale) and they each move in with their kids. The rest of the sitcom’s cast includes J.B. Smoove, Jayma Mays, Nelson Franklin, and Eve Moon.
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.
Final season averages: 2.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.90 million total viewers.

These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
