What’s This TV Show About?
A political thriller airing on the ABC television network, Designated Survivor stars Kiefer Sutherland, Natascha McElhone, Adan Canto, LaMonica Garrett, Kal Penn, Maggie Q, Malik Yoba, Paulo Costanzo, Zoe McLellan, Ben Lawson, Tanner Buchanan, and Mckenna Grace. The conspiracy drama series centers on Tom Kirkman (Sutherland). After an attack on Capitol Hill wipes out the line of succession, this HUD Secretary becomes President of the United States. In Designated Survivor, season two, President Kirkman is on the hunt for the terrorists who destroyed the Capitol, even as he handles the daily Oval Office crises.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of Designated Survivor averaged a 0.70 in the demo and 3.93 million total viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 44% and down by 33%, respectively. Find out how Designated Survivor stacks up against other ABC TV shows.
Designated Survivor premiered to much lower numbers than last season and the ratings have dropped quite low over the course of the season. Though ABC wants this series to survive to see a third season, I just don’t think enough viewers tune in. I’ve heard that it does well internationally. If it is renewed, that will be the reason why. For now, I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free updates on any Designated Survivor cancellation or renewal news.
