What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the ABC television network, the 20/20 TV show is anchored by journalists David Muir and Amy Robach. Correspondents include Juju Chang, John Quiñones, Deborah Roberts, Brian Ross, Diane Sawyer, and Jay Schadler. Created by Roone Arledge in June 1978, the program combines investigative news reports with human interest stories and other features. The venerable series’ name is derived from the 20/20 measurement of visual acuity.
Season 45 Ratings
The 45th season of 20/20 averages a 0.32 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.72 million viewers. Compared to season 44, that’s down by 26% in the demo and down by 13% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (includes DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled. Find out how 20/20 stacks up against other ABC TV shows.
Will ABC cancel or renew 20/20 for season 46? The show is a staple on the network, presumably doesn’t cost much to produce, and does pretty well in the ratings on Friday nights.
