With the Law & Order and Chicago franchises, executive producer Dick Wolf has a very impressive track record of making long-running TV shows for NBC. Now, he and Craig Turk have made another one — the FBI TV series — for CBS, a network that already has quite a few procedural dramas. Will it be a ratings success and be renewed for a second season or, will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
Airing on CBS, the FBI TV show stars Missy Peregrym, Zeeko Zaki, Ebonée Noel, Jeremy Sisto, and Sela Ward. The program revolves around the inner workings of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s New York office and a group of first-class agents. The team brings all of their talents and technical expertise to solve major cases of tremendous magnitude — including terrorism, organized crime and counterintelligence.
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.
