Like clockwork, the ABC newsmagazine is back for another season — the show’s 37th. Will 20/20 ever be cancelled or is it a lock to be renewed for season 38 already? Stay tuned.
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 — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Last year comparison: The 36th season of 20/20 averaged a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.84 million total viewers.
Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
What do you think? Do you like the 20/20 TV series? Do you think it’s still worth watching?
There is one episode missing. The Bruce Jenner episode which had 5.2 rating and 17.10 million viewers
My understanding is that it was considered a special.
