Last summer, ABC resurrected the BattleBots TV show. It performed well enough in the ratings for the network to bring it back and order even more episodes. How will it perform this time around? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a third 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, Samantha Ponder, Alison Haislip, Fon Davis, Jessica Chobot, Faruq Tauheed, and Clark Gregg.
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 — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
What do you think? Do you like the BattleBots TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a third season?
Please renew battlebots for season 3. I just discovered it on science Channel strictly by chance.
HOW COULD THEY CANCEL BATTLEBOTS, THE COOLEST SHOW EVER????? LIFE SUCKS AGAIN
MOAR BATTLEBOTS NOW PLZ
Love this show its sooooo AWESOME!!!! Please bring it back
Please, please, please renew Battlebots. We just love that show. We live in a small town and everyone gets into “It’s robot fighting time.”
We were really bummed we the Muppets we canceled. Please don’t take our battle bots too
We love Battlebots. We didn’t get all of season 2 because our local abc station was in a contract argument with DIRECTV.
We watched it on Hulu every week–and repeatedly, because I could never remember when to watch it on regular TV. I know of many others in our area who did the same. I wonder if Hulu views affected ratings on network?
Renew for season 3 or we riot!
Battlebots is by far the best show on tv. Ratings slipping is because of it horrible time slot, and continually being pre empted for the Oylmpics and pre season football, which nobody cares about anyway.
My husband and I love this show. Please renew it.
I love this show! Please renew for season 3!
Love it! Please keep it!
Please renew this show, it doesn’t help that ABC put it on a crappy timeslot from being on Sundays for season 1 which
was a better time slot than it is now. It also doesn’t help either that the episodes keep getting pulled back because of Olympics, political and now nfl pre season coverage. If it ends up getting cancelled after this season, I really blame ABC.
Great show. We host neighborhood parties and all the teenagers and adults pick their winners and we give prizes for certain things that the Bots do. PLEASE renew for a 3rd season!!!
