Last year, the Gotham TV show hit its Nielsen ratings nadir, yet the network made the decision to renew it for a fifth and final season, rather than to cancel it. Although season six is not in the cards (at least right now), we’re keeping an eye on the ratings because it’s fun and because it gives us a good benchmark for other FOX TV series. How will Gotham perform, now that the end is nigh? Stay tuned.
A FOX crime drama based on DC Comics characters, Gotham stars Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, Robin Lord Taylor, Cory Michael Smith, David Mazouz, Sean Pertwee, Erin Richards, Camren Bicondova, and Chris Chalk. The FOX series explores the early days of then-police detective James Gordon (McKenzie) and iconic Gotham City characters — before they became legends. The fifth and final season centers on Bruce Wayne’s (David Mazouz) transformation into the caped crusader.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in 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.
4/26 update: You can see the latest night’s ratings in context.

For comparisons: The fourth season of Gotham averaged a 0.77 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.563 million total viewers (live + same day ratings).
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? Is the Gotham TV show ending at the right time? If it were up to you, would FOX cancel or renew Gotham for a sixth season?
Season 6 pls
The show was just getting its legs (bak) I hope it comes back for many seasons to come
Your ratings might look different if you took into consideration, not everyone has live TV. And when you go to watch on demand and the first 4 episodes aren’t there, you wait to binge. Doesn’t mean people dont like it. Means people have cut the cord and watch on demand if available in a timely manner.
La miglior serie TV che io abbia mai visto!
Vi prego fate anche la 6 stagione, e un capolavoro non può essere cancellata
Yes we want the season six like a dog tha waant a stick plz give to us one more season your jobe is excellent.Keep up the good work
Please keep the epic seasons of Gotham coming! The interpersonal, complex and ever-changing relationships among the characters has a very unique way of holding interest in the show. The special effects, storytelling, acting, set design and wardrobe departments are all on their top game, which makes every episode of Gotham a real treat to watch! Not to mention, this last episode “They Did What?!” came in at #5 in trending on Twitter! Definitely NOT a sign to end this spectacular show!
This last season is an embarrassment. I was already done with the series but was hanging on to the end watching this last season. It reminded me why I grew tired of this series to begin with. Last season is nothing but filler and bad acting. The last season should have ended there but this season is adding nothing and makes me wonder why it was even done. This series should have been called, “Batman the Wuss and all his Buddies”. One last episode left and that’s all the time they got to transform wuss Bruce Wayne into the caped… Read more »
Gotham is such an amazing show. I am so impressed and I would be so sad if this show comes to an end. I am so grateful and happy for every single episode of it. Please keep this show, it means a lot for me. *_*
Please keep this show!!!! It’s one of the her best on TV!!!
This is one of the best shows on TV in a bad time slot. You are up against a strong night on CBS with all the comedies. Frankly it would be mush better in the 9:00 EST time slot as the show is too dark to watch with young children at 8:00 time slot. If it were pushed back to 9:00 and the kiddos are in bed more people would watch… I think it has always had time slot issues and the show is just too edgy for this time of night. Please re-new as I absolutely love this one… Read more »
If it were up to me it should be renewed for another season it is a great show way better then others like the flash (team Arrow Gotham and supergirl) I say bring it back plus it would probably do better if not during Thursday night football or even if it was on a Friday night or something
