What’s This TV Show About?
An ABC medical drama, The Good Doctor stars Freddie Highmore, Antonia Thomas, Nicholas Gonzalez, Chuku Modu, Beau Garrett, Hill Harper, Tamlyn Tomita, Christina Chang, Fiona Gubelmann, Will Yun Lee, Paige Spara, and Richard Schiff. The series centers on Dr. Shaun Murphy (Highmore), a gifted young surgeon and savant on the autism spectrum.

Season Two Ratings
The second season of The Good Doctor averaged a 1.12 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.73 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 37% and 31%, respectively. Find out how The Good Doctor stacks up against other ABC TV shows.
Will ABC cancel or renew The Good Doctor for season three? I am concerned about the ratings but, unless they totally tank, I think The Good Doctor will be renewed. ABC needs new drama series and this one seems ripe to replace How to Get Away with Murder as their low-rated, quality program. For now, I believe it will be renewed. I’ll keep an eye on the ratings and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free alerts on The Good Doctor cancellation or renewal news.
