CBS has had mixed success with their new crime dramas this season. NCIS: New Orleans has been renewed for a second season while Stalker has been dropped from the schedule and may likely be cancelled. What will happen to Battle Creek? Stay tuned.
Battle Creek revolves around two mismatched law enforcement officers — Detective Russ Agnew (Dean Winters) and FBI Special Agent Milton Chamberlain (Josh Duhamel) — who have polar opposite views of the world and end up being partners. The rest of the cast includes Janet McTeer, Kal Penn, Aubrey Dollar, and Edward Fordham Jr.
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 — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
5/8 update: CBS has cancelled the Battle Creek series midway through its first season.

What do you think? Do you like the Battle Creek TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
Dean and Josh and the cast had great chemistry and just watching the last episode makes you want to see season two. I’ve watched all 13 two times now and CBS or Netflix will be making a mistake if they don’t bring it back ? I know I am to late with this comment but I know a great show when I see one.
I really enjoyed the series. I wasn’tt sure after episode 1 but by episode 13 I was really sorry to see the season ended and was very disappointed to read that the show was cancelled.
Love Battle Creek! Please do not cancel!!!
Please renew the series! I loved it!
I was looking forward to Season 2 and not there isn’t going to be one???? What a shame, it was great. Please do not cancel.
Please renwe the series! It’s just such a great show!!
Please renew! It’s a great series.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T CANCEL BATTLE CREEK. BY FAR ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS I’VE SEEN IN A LONG TIME BECAUSE IT’S ORIGINAL, VERY SUBTLE HUMOR AND GREAT CHARACTERS. WE’RE RUNNING OVER WITH CRAPPY SITCOMS AND OTHER SHOWS THAT HAVE NO SUBSTANCE. PLEASE BRING THIS SHOW BACK!!!!!
