Last year, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine TV show continued its big ratings slide, yet it was not cancelled by FOX. Was the fifth season renewal all about ensuring an optimally sized syndication package? Will Brooklyn Nine-Nine be cancelled or renewed for season six? Stay tuned. *See update below.
A police procedural comedy from creators Dan Goor and Michael Schur, Brooklyn Nine-Nine stars Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Joel McKinnon Miller, and Dirk Blocker. The sitcom follows Detective Jake Peralta (Samberg) and the rest of the unique detectives and officers at the NYPD’s 99th Precinct.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in 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.
5/21 update: You can see the latest night’s ratings in context.

For comparisons: The fourth season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine averaged a 0.86 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.11 million total viewers (live + same day ratings).
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.
What do you think? Do you still like the Brooklyn Nine-Nine TV series? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a sixth season on FOX?
5/10/18 update: FOX decided to cancel Brooklyn Nine-Nine but NBC then picked it up for season six. Details here.
NBC was always good in picking trash of cancelled shows.
THIS IS THE BEST SHOW PLEASE DO NOT TAKE IT OFF THE AIR
Please please please keep this show going! This is my absolute favourite show!! I have no idea how many times I’ve watched this show over and over. Every time I find something new; Boyle’s reaction and timing are perfect, Scully and Hitchcock are always in action even if they are just in the background, and captain Holt’s been gradually loosened up thanks to Nine-Nine. I love the moment When he shows his emotions. All the main casts are great. Their character developments have been done well so viewers have become familiar with each character by now. It’s hilarious either way… Read more »
I want it to be renew
According to Spotted Ratings, Episode 12 got a 0.907 rating.
Thanks but we don’t list unrounded demos until we get the finals.
Great show – please renew for season 6!
I have enjoyed this season for the simple reason that the Gina character is not present. She really doesn’t add anything to the show.
New time? New day? Keep moving it around and nobody knows where to find it. One of the reasons the ratings are sliding. Another funny show that will unfortunately see its’ untimely demise.
I feel so bad for this show cause it’s really funny with a perfect cast if only they promoted it more and it wasn’t on Fox. Fox lost a lot of viewers on all of their shows since they started supporting Trump
