Time After Time premiered on March 5th to very low ratings. The show’s debut received a 0.65 rating in the 18-49 demo and only 2.54 million viewers. The series’ numbers have only declined from there. Only five episodes in, the drama is averaging a 0.54 rating in the 18-49 demo and 2.20 million viewers, making it one of the network’s lowest-rated series for the 2016-2017 season.
While ABC has not officially announced a cancellation (networks rarely do), it seems certain that it’s cancelled, given the terrible ratings and the show being pulled from the schedule. Match Game will air in place of Time After Time beginning April 2nd. There are currently no plans to air the remaining installments.
