What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the FX cable channel, American Crime Story dramatizes a notable event in United States history in a self-contained season. Subtitled Impeachment, season three stars Sarah Paulson, Annaleigh Ashford, Judith Light, Beanie Feldstein, Clive Owen, Margo Martindale, Billy Eichner, Cobie Smulders, Edie Falco, Taran Killam, Colin Hanks, Mira Sorvino, Elizabeth Reaser, and Anthony Green. The story is based on the book titled A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President by Jeffrey Toobin which revolves around the President Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal of the late 1990s and the ensuing impeachment of Clinton. The series tells the story through the eyes of the women at the center of the events — Monica Lewinsky (Feldstein), Linda Tripp (Paulson), and Paula Jones (Ashford).
Season Three Ratings
The third season of American Crime Story averages a 0.24 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 803,000 viewers in the live+same day ratings (includes all DVR playback through 3:00 AM). Compared to season two (which aired in 2018), that’s down by 35% in the demo and down by 34% in viewership. 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 the higher-rated series are usually renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled. Find out how American Crime Story stacks up against other FX TV shows.
We don’t have to wonder if FX will cancel American Crime Story right now. The series has already been renewed for a fourth season and will likely revolve around the iconic Studio 54 in New York City.
