TNT TV Show Ratings (updated 10/23/14)

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, Major Crimes, Murder in the First, Perception, and Rizzoli & Isles .

Last Update: Latest ratings for Franklin & Bash 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.

Note: If you’re not seeing the updated charts, please try reloading the page. You can also view them here and here.

You can see other networks’ rankings here:
ABC | CBS | The CW | FOX | NBC | ABC Family

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?

The horrible Transporter series should be added to this list to show how bad TNT is doing. TNT does not know drama and should have never cancelled Dallas!

Falling Skies and Franklin and Bash should be cancelled as well. Keep Dallas. You have die hard fans.

TNT cancels the show that had the most dedicated fans in the world DALLAS as you can now see from the #savedallas campaign . They renewed Murder in First which had lower ratings and then add some Cooking show which is a loss already. Unbelievable!

By chance has anything been mentioned about Rizzoli and Isles. The silence is deafing. I’m concerned because TNT like USA cancel things without much notice.
If anyone has heard or read anything please give an update.

Not yet.

Best shows on TNT are Last Ship, Legends and Perception. They can do what they want with the rest of them especially Dallas. The show stunk years ago when the stars were young, why does anyone care now what the rich Texan yahoos are doing?
