Nina Dobrev had a long successful run as Elena Gilbert on The CW‘s The Vampire Diaries, but now she’s left fantasy drama and the littlest network behind for a major broadcast network sitcom — the Fam TV show. Can she attract the more mainstream, slightly older CBS audience, and maybe even improve their demo numbers a little? Will Fam be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A CBS family comedy, Fam stars Dobrev, Tone Bell, Odessa Adlon, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Brian Stokes Mitchell. It centers on Clem (Dobrev), who overcame a rough start and is now living her best life with fiancé Nick (Bell) and his wonderful family. When her younger half-sister, Shannon (Adlon), shows up, in need of respite from their dad, Clem and Nick take her in, with the hopes of teaching her how to avoid the pitfalls which once tripped up Clem .
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly on 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.

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.
What do you think? Do you like the Fam TV series? Should this CBS TV show be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
