TNT TV Show Ratings (updated 8/26/15)

TNT TV shows: canceled or renewed?TNT has had both great successes and big disappointments when it comes to their original scripted shows. Which of the current crop will be cancelled or renewed for another season? Stay tuned!

Scripted TNT shows listed: Dallas, Falling Skies, Franklin & Bash, The Last Ship, Legends, The Librarians, Major Crimes, Murder in the First, Perception, Proof, Public Morals, Rizzoli & Isles, and Transporter: The Series.

Last update: Latest ratings for Public Morals and Rizzoli & Isles added.

There’s lots of data that TNT execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are the major ingredient. Here’s an updated listing of all of their recent/current primetime scripted shows.

ABC | CBS | The CW | FOX | NBC
ABC Family | AMC | FX | HBO | MTV | Showtime | Syfy | USA

A couple of notes about these charts:
These figures are updated automatically as new ratings are released (usually a day or so after the broadcasts). The averages are based on the final national numbers (live plus same day viewing). For technical reasons, I have to resort them manually so feel free to let me know if I missed something.

The demo numbers, which are typically most important to the broadcast networks, aren’t quite as vital to cable channels because their audiences are usually much smaller. Demo numbers are typically reported using the 10ths decimal place (2.4, for example). In the averages, I’m using an extra decimal for easier ranking.

What do you think? Are you surprised by any of the ratings? Which shows should be doing better? Which one do you think will be cancelled next?

    TNT knows drama, huh? What does using the Lord’s name in vain have to do with drama??? It must be a conspiracy or TNT and SyFy are devil worshipers to start doing so in this season of programming without any concern or respect for the Lord or those who love His name. Falling Skies didn’t misuse His name at all in the previous seasons, so why now? To improve the show or it’s popularity; what. in it’s last season??? I know the FCC gives the networks the right of profanity after 10pm. But I don’t want to hear the misuse of the Lord’s name anytime I watch tv. Especially in my own living room!

    Transporter is a great show! I am highly addicted! I watched both seasons and was not dis appointed. This show needs more advertising and another season to pull up ratings.
    I also would like to see more of public morals. Great show!
    Thank you

    I don’t know how these shows are tallied, but I record everything and watch it at the end of the season. Does this have anything to do with how they’re rated? I love Perception. Now it’s going?

      Unfortunately it may make a difference.
      The +3 day and +7 day ratings factor into renewal decisions.
      If many viewers wait to watch until a week or more after the first airing, like the end of the season, then those viewings don’t count towards totals ratings.
