Although the Tiffany Network’s premier news series, 60 Minutes is entering its 50th season, CBS is introducing another news magazine during the summer. Will their CBSN: On Assignment TV show enjoy the same kind of success? Cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
CBSN: On Assignment features reports from new perspectives, on stories from around the globe. The CBS TV series is also available on CBSN, the Tiffany network’s streaming news platform. Viewers can also stream it on the CBS News website, as well as the network’s paid subscription streaming service, CBS All Access. Each episode features multiple reports. Topics range from grassroots movements to end inner-city gun violence, to political corruption, and new terrorist threats.
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 — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
8/22 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s 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.
