Touch: Season Two Ratings

touch tv show - season two ratingsDespite mediocre ratings, FOX renewed Touch for a second season. Will the TV series’ luck hold out long enough for it to be renewed for a third season — or will it be cancelled instead? We’ll have to wait, watch the ratings, and see.

Compared to the TV series’ debut a year ago, the season premiere was way down in the ratings — by 72% in the demo (vs a 3.9 rating) and by 67% in viewership (vs 12.01 million). Not good — even for a Friday night show.


Reference point: The 2011-12 season of Touch averaged a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 7.2 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you still like the Touch TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a third season?

I watch next to NOTHING on TV, but I watch TOUCH every time it’s on so yeah, Janice, I’m shocked such an interesting plot with interesting characters is doing so poorly. It is on a bad night probably for the genre. Regardless, what a shame! Tonight was really good.

I cannot understand why the ratings are low for this series. It is not like any other show on. It makes you think. Is that the reason?
I do with they would go back the the original premises showing how people the world over are inter-connected in surprising ways.

My whole family loves Touch and I hope it is not canceled. It requires thinking and paying attention so I never expected it to last long. With Fringe gone now Touch is the only FOX program we watch. If it is canceled I will not bother to watch another FOX show because unless it is trash it will not last.

Touch is superior to so many of the drama series now airing. Please don’t cancel. Why not try another time slot. Friday is not the best. It deserves a third season shot!

This series was incredible until a couple of episodes ago. Killing Lucy was a big mistake. Knowing that the death of her character was due to her resignation from the series, really pissed me off. The show has taken some ugly turns since. Avram character doesn’t fit as well with the story as Lucy. Things are happening so fast that it seems Fox is desperate to terminate this series. I’ll be watching my series from HBO, Showtime or AMC. I’m tired of networks axing series so quickly.

I love this show , It inspires me in so many different ways . I hope it has more seasons because these are the type of shows that should be on television. NOT those stupid reality tv shows that are made up. I believe this has the best story of all shows out right now. and it’s paranormal so it makes you think and question if life is really set out to be what we think it is. This show has changed my life in many ways. and i have so much adrenaline just kind of watching it and i… Read more »

This show MUST be renewed. It is unique, intelligent, jawdropping, and emotional at the same time. These past 3 episodes have proven how touching this show can be.
