Despite lots of negative reviews last year, Zoo did okay in the ratings for a summer show. CBS renewed it for a second season. Will the numbers rise or fall this time around? Will the Zoo TV show be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
On Zoo, a young zoologist (James Wolk) spends his days running safaris in the wilds of Africa. He begins noticing the strange behavior of the animals and works to figure out the reason for them as the assaults become more cunning, coordinated and ferocious. The rest of the cast includes Kristen Connolly, Nonso Anozie, Billy Burke, Josh Salatin, and Alyssa Diaz.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

For comparisons: The first season of Zoo averaged a 1.06 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.40 million total viewers.
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
