Music performance series have had a checkered history on television. Some have been very successful in the ratings and have lasted for years while others have been quick flops. How will Greatest Hits do for ABC this summer? Cancelled or renewed for season two?
Hosted by Arsenio Hall and Kelsea Ballerini, Greatest Hits features “hit-makers” from the 35 years.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
