What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the CBS television network, the 48 Hours TV show dives into the most intriguing and compelling true crime cases. The series, which premiered in 1988, has developed a rich history of original reporting and impact journalism that has helped exonerate wrongly convicted people, caused cold cases to be reopened and solved, and, along the way, changed lives. Correspondents include Maureen Maher, Erin Moriarty, Richard Schlesinger, Tracy Smith, and Peter Van Sant.
Season 34 Ratings
The 34th season of 48 Hours averages a 0.32 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.83 million viewers. Compared to season 33, that’s down by 4% in the demo and even in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including 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.

What do you think? Are you glad that the 48 Hours TV show has been renewed for a 35th season? How would you feel if CBS had cancelled this TV series, instead?
With regards to “48 Hours” on CBS Saturday nights at 10pm, as of Sept. 18th, aren’t we watching the 35th season already? Official status on this post says “48 Hours” hasn’t been cancelled or renewed for its 35th season. I’m confused. Can someone please clarify? Thanks.
Good eye. The long and the short of it is that CBS seems to have skipped season 32. In their press release about the Fall 2018 premiere, CBS touted 48 Hours’ season 31 debut. A year later, the network announced the show’s Fall 2019 debut and called it season 33. On CBS.com and Paramount+, the current season’s episodes are listed as being part of season 34. Maybe they’ll fix the error at some point or maybe not.
