The original BattleBots TV show ran for five seasons on Comedy Central. Now, ABC has picked up a reimagined version of the show more than a dozen years later. How will the robotic competition perform in the ratings on a major network? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
On the new version of BattleBots, the next generation of killer robots fight each other for the win. They’re bigger, faster, and stronger than ever before. Episodes focus on the design and building of each robot, the bot builders’ backstories, their intense pursuit of the championship, and the spectacle of the event. Commenting on and judging the action are Chris Rose, Kenny Florian, Molly McGrath, Alison Haislip, Bobak Ferdowsi, Faruq Tauheed, Fon Davis, Jessica Chobot, and Leland Melvin.
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.
