Some fans really love their favorite celebrities but, will viewers love a game show about them? Will the Big Fan TV show on ABC survive to see a second season or, will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.
Hosted by Andy Richter, the Big Fan game show on ABC is based on a segment from Jimmy Kimmel Live. In the series, three of a featured celebrity’s biggest fans compete to prove which of them is the ultimate super fan. They answer trivia and biographical questions about the star and the most knowledgeable fan then goes head-to-head with the celebrity themselves. First season celebrities include Kristen Bell, Kim Kardashian West, Matthew McConaughey, and Aaron Rodgers.
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 Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
