Last year, the freshman installment of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Tim Minear’s 9-1-1 TV show was a bonafide hit for FOX. It drew a larger total audience than all of the television network’s other scripted offerings, and came in second in the demo, right behind Empire. Now that 9-1-1 is back for a second season, can it match or even improve upon its performance? Will 9-1-1 be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A FOX procedural, 9-1-1 stars Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, Jennifer Love-Hewitt, Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, Rockmond Dunbar, Ryan Guzman, Corinne Massiah, and Marcanthonee Reis. The scripted drama, inspired by real-life experiences, centers on the police officers, firefighters, and paramedics who risk their lives to save others. No matter how frightening, dangerous, and shocking a situation may be, these first responders rush toward crises from which others flee.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in 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 9-1-1 on FOX averaged a 1.65 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.32 million total viewers (live + same day ratings).
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night.
