What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the TNT cable channel, Animal Kingdom stars Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary, Finn Cole, Sohvi Rodriguez, Leila George, and Jon Beavers. The story revolves around the Cody crime family who has now lost its matriarch. In the fifth season, Pope (Hatosy), Craig (Robson), Deran (Weary), and J (Cole) are still dealing with the fallout from the events surrounding Smurf’s death, including family members out for revenge. With their kingdom without a leader, the Codys struggle to maintain their fragile alliance and to see which of them will come out on top. Meanwhile, they search for more information on Pamela Johnson whom Smurf made the beneficiary of her estate. And back in 1984, an increasingly volatile 29-year-old Smurf is forging her own path raising Pope and Julia and leading the charge on dangerous jobs with new and old friends.
Season Five Ratings
The fifth season of Animal Kingdom averaged a 0.19 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 894,000 viewers. Compared to season four, that’s down by 43% in the demo and down by 26% 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 the higher-rated series are typically renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.
