TNT TV Show Ratings (updated 11/18/14)

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, Rizzoli & Isles, and Transporter: The Series.

Last update: Latest ratings for Transporter: The Series 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?

We watch both Last Ship and Legends. If TNT renews Last Ship but cancels Legends it’s completely nuts. I would stop (probably will) last Ship but plan to watch Legends to the end, all 7 seasons. It’s high quality, just hasn’t caught on yet. There is no doubt, in my mind, that Legends, given the chance, will be one of TNT’s premium shows. I just signed up for a new cable company and before picking one out, I made sure TNT was broadcat on it. All for Legends.

What is the holdup on renewing TV show Legends? Looking forward to 2nd season. Love Sean Bean, Ali Larter and the rest of the cast.

So here we are in mid Nov and still no renewal of Rizzoli and Isles. Is there any indication what is going on? They usually start filming in February and if they are still on hold no scripts are being written.
Anyone hear anything or know what’s going on?????????

It took me awhile to get into Legends. But now I’m hooked. Give it at least one more season to catch on. Please!

Does TNT take into account people that DVR their shows?
