A TV series from the UK, Dates ran for one season of nine episodes in 2013. While it seems unlikely that there will be a second season, The CW resurrected another UK series, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, and put it back into production several years after it was cancelled overseas. Will the ratings be good enough for the network to want a second season? Stay tuned.
Set in London, Dates revolves around the first dates between two people who have met via an online dating service. Each episode revolves around a different couple. The cast includes Will Mellor, Oona Chaplin, Neil Maskell, Sheridan Smith, Ben Chaplin, Andrew Scott, Greg McHugh, Katie McGrath, Gemma Chan, Montanna Thompson, and Sian Breckin.
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.

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.
