Season Two Ratings
The second season of Underground averaged a 0.19 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 567,000 viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 40% and down by 43%, respectively. Learn how Underground stacks up against WGN America’s other TV shows.
At the beginning of the season, I thought that Underground would be renewed because of its ratings. Now that Outsiders has been cancelled, it’s looking like WGN America wants to get out of the scripted series business. I have a feeling this will be the last season for the series, at least on this channel. I will keep an eye on the ratings, my ear to the ground, and will update this page when I have news to share.
