What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the CBS television network, FBI: Most Wanted is a spin-off of the FBI TV series. The show stars Dylan McDermott, Alexa Davalos, Roxy Sternberg, Keisha Castle-Hughes, and Edwin Hodge. Rebecca Brooksher and Catherine Wolf recur. The story focuses on the work of the Fugitive Task Force, a team that tracks and captures notorious criminals on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Most Wanted list. The team’s charming but formidable leader is Supervisory Special Agent Remy Scott (McDermott). He started his career in the New York FBI field office before rising through the ranks of the Bureau in Philadelphia and Las Vegas. The team includes Special Agent Sheryll Barnes (Sternberg), a former NYPD detective and forensics expert who is raising two young children with her wife; Special Agent Hana Gibson (Castle-Hughes), a gifted millennial computer whiz with a sharp wit and mad hacking skills; Special Agent Kristin Gaines (Davalos), a Navy veteran who has earned a reputation for not giving up on cold cases; and their newest member, former New Orleans cop-turned-junior detective Ray Cannon (Hodge). He worked in Violent Crimes in Albany after following in his retired FBI agent father’s footsteps and graduating at the top of his class at Quantico last year.
Season Four Ratings
The fourth season of FBI: Most Wanted averaged a 0.39 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.08 million viewers in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). Compared to season three, that’s down by 25% in the demo and down by 9% in viewership. While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.
