Whodunnit?: Cancel or Keep the ABC Mystery Series?

WHODUNNIT? cancel or keep?Since June, ABC has been airing a murder mystery reality series called Whodunnit?. Has the show been making a killing in the ratings? Should the network cancel or renew it for a second season?

Whodunnit? follows a group of 13 contestants who have been invited to stay in a Beverly Hills mansion. Guided by host/butler Giles (Gildart Jackson), they try to solve the “murders” of other contestants, uncover the killer’s identity, and survive long enough to ultimately win a $250,000 prize.

The show debuted on June 23rd to a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.05 million total viewers. It wasn’t a very impressive start and the second episode’s ratings dropped more than 20%, to a 1.0 rating and 3.19 million viewers. The numbers have stayed at roughly those levels ever since.

The ratings are pretty lousy but the small audience has remained consistent and loyal. While ABC could justifiably cancel Whodunnit?, something tells me they may give it a second chance anyway.

The network sometimes decides to give struggling shows a bit more time. For example, they could have cancelled Shark Tank after one season but decided to stick with it instead. Their patience was rewarded and it’s grown into a hit show on Friday nights. Whodunnit? might be lucky as well.

But, what do you think? Should ABC renew Whodunnit? for a second season or should they cancel it instead? Have you been watching each week?

this is my favorite show and i am very angry/dissapointed that it might be canclled. many viewers like watching this show and will be very angry if it is cancelled. you should give the show a second chance and then see how it goes. you cant put a show on for 1 season and then take it off… give the show a second and chance and i bet it will get better ratings. me and a lot of my friends like this show and will be very sad if its cancelled. i suggest putting this show back on tv. look at all the comments above about not wanting you to cancel the show. your not really going to let down all these people by canceling the show, are you? maybe some better advertising would help get more veiwers? 3.19 million viewers isnt much but its not to little either. personaly there are some shows on ABC that can be taken off rather than whodunnit. the bachelor is stupid in my opinion you should’nt have to go on a tv show just to find love. thats silly. i mean really? i understand everybody wants love but going on a tv show to find it? that just shows that you are desperite. Bring back whodunnit!
