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.

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?
