Based on the Norwegian series Øyevitne, season one of the planned anthology drama follows two teenage boys who witness a shooting while trying to keep a secret of their own. The cast includes Julianne Nicholson, Tyler Young, James Paxton, Gil Bellows, Warren Christie, and Tattiawna Jones.
Eyewitness premiered on October 16th and earned a 0.20 rating in the 18-49 demo and around 765,000 viewers. The series continued to dip in the ratings over the course of the season, ending with an average of around 0.17 in the 18-49 demo and 628,00 viewers — pretty low numbers even for a cable drama.
Based on the ratings alone, it seems likely that Eyewitness will be cancelled. However, we’d like to know what you think. Please tell us.
