We don’t usually track the ratings of Adult Swim TV series, so this is a bit of an experiment for us. Likewise, the Decker TV show has been a bit of an experiment for the Cartoon Network‘s adult programming block. The live-action comedy first ran as a web series on AdultSwim.com, before it premiered on television, in 2016. Now in its third season on the cable channel, will Decker be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned.
From Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington, the Decker TV show stars Heidecker, Turkington, Joe Estevez, James Mane Jr., Mark Proksch, and John Aprea. The Adult Swim cast also includes Simone Turkington, Sally Kellerman, Ralph Lucas, Jimmy McNichol, Charlie Schiefer, Manuel Giusti, and Rizi Timane. A spoof on spy dramas, the action centers on CIA Agent Jack Decker (Heidecker) who works to foil terrorist plots against the US. This staunch conservative works with Agent Jonathan Kington (Turkington), a master code breaker, to protect this “once great” nation, from threats both foreign and domestic.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers.

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
