Although Syfy has already renewed its 12 Monkeys TV show for a fourth and final season, we’re still tracking the season three ratings, because even renewals can be cancelled. Between the first and second seasons, its numbers in the 18-49 demo fell by 53% and the show lost 49% of its total audience. Meanwhile, the cable network is trying something new in season three. Perhaps in an attempt to inspire streaming-style binge watching, it will air all 10 episodes over three consecutive nights. Will this help boost viewership or have they decided the numbers no longer matter for this show? Stay tuned.
A sci-fi mystery, 12 Monkeys stars Aaron Stanford, Amanda Schull, Kirk Acevedo, Todd Stashwick, Emily Hampshire, and Barbara Sukowa. The drama series follows the journey of James Cole (Stanford), a man from 2043, who is sent back in time to stop the evil Army of the 12 Monkeys from destroying the world. Christopher Lloyd guest stars in the third season as charismatic cult leader Zalmon Shaw, with Hannah Waddingham, Faran Tahir, and James Callis recurring.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
