USA Network TV Show Ratings (updated 12/17/14)

USA Network TV showsOver the course of its history, USA Network has had both great successes and big disappointments when it comes to their original scripted shows. Which of the current ones will be cancelled or renewed for another season? Stay tuned!

Scripted USA Network shows listed: Benched, Covert Affairs, Graceland, Psych, Royal Pains, Rush, Satisfaction, Sirens, Suits and White Collar.

Update: Latest ratings for Benched added.

There’s lots of data that USA Network 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 | FX | TNT

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?

I may have jumped the gun after the Fall shows ended But everthing should come back. There is enough room for Rush. Benched is hanging by a string but will grow as a half hour comedy. But USA needs a dramedy or a dark drama to mix the portfolio. Stronger Writing!

How does a network cancel its 4th highest rated show, its 2nd highest rated drama? Insanity. The only thing to watch on USA is Suits. Everything else blows.

I am GREATLY upset by the cancellation of RUSH!! It would come on and I w0uld start watching it…the next thing I knew, it would be over. It kept me engaged the whole episode. My husband always told me (we both read a lot) that he could gage how good a book was by how often he would think “I wonder what’s going on with the characters in the book?” when he wasn’t reading the book. THAT’S how I felt about RUSH. I wondered what was going on and what was going to happen next.

I too love RUSH!!!! I looked forward to watching it every Thursday, it was so exciting the ending had me wanting more and could not wait for the new season. Now I am so disappointed that they cancelled it. Also sad that White Collar is ending, too soon.

How can you not renew RUSH but renew sirens with a lot less audience. I love Satisfaction too and it’s being renewed and has less watchers than RUSH. Why are you doing this. Love the cast and storylines of RUSH. PLEASE RENEW RUSH!!!!! Such an awesome show!!!! Think of us that do watch RUSH.

Rush got canceled because it sucked, the ratings say so. USA has another doctor program in the works to replace it.

USA has a FBI show in the works to replace White Collar, which is ending

Satisfaction was renewed because they have nothing to replace it with.only two shows in the works already accounted for.

Sirens was renewed cause it’s a comedy not a drama. nothing to replace it with

I love love love Satisfaction. They have got to renew this show. It really hadn’t gotten much publicity. It seems that the show didn’t start picking up until a few episodes into it. I’m guessing from word of mouth. It would be a shame if this show gets cancelled after just one season, because it really hasn’t been given a chance. It is well written and well acted. The last episode left it open for so many possibilities. You end up rooting for all of the characters. I don’t think I hate any of them. You can see why each one is the way they are. And for those that haven’t had their stories explained yet….(There are two so far ) Let’s find out what their stories are. Please don’t leave us hanging. I find it a bit unsettling that we can cancel a fantastic show like this, but the Kartrashians continue to get airtime. Please, Please, Please don’t cancel this show. We need more shows like this. I am sick of reality tv.
