Once again, NBC is launching a new TV show in the timeslot following The Voice. While the ratings are always very positive in the beginning, the numbers frequently plunge once the series is moved to another night. Some of these shows have been renewed, some have been cancelled. Will Timeless see a second season? Stay tuned.
An action-adventure series, Timeless begins as a mysterious criminal (Goran Visnjic) steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America by changing the past. The country’s only hope is an unexpected team of a history professor (Abigail Spencer), a soldier (Matt Lanter), and a scientist (Malcolm Barrett) as they embark on the adventure of a lifetime to stop the villain. The rest of the cast includes Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit.
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.
1/17 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
