NBC introduced Dateline Saturday Night Mystery last year as a Saturday night staple. It didn’t achieve great ratings but they’ve brought it back. Will the show return for a third season or, will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.
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.
3/15 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.

Note: 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.
For comparisons: The first season of Dateline Saturday Night Mystery averaged a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.73 million viewers.
