While Hallmark Channel is still quite new to producing original scripted TV shows, the execs still have to pay attention to ratings. Which TV shows are most likely to be cancelled or renewed? Stay tuned.
Scripted Hallmark Channel shows listed: Cedar Cove, Chesapeake Shores, Good Witch, Ride, The Way Home, When Calls The Heart, and When Hope Calls.
Last update: Ratings added for the most recent episode of When Calls The Heart.
There’s lots of data that Hallmark execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are the major ingredient. Here’s an updated listing of all of their recent/current primetime scripted shows.

A couple of notes about these charts:
These figures are updated automatically as new ratings are released (usually a day or so after the broadcasts). The averages are based on the final national numbers (live plus same day viewing). For technical reasons, I have to resort them manually so feel free to let me know if I missed something.
The demo numbers, which are typically most important to the broadcast networks, aren’t quite as vital to cable channels because their audiences are usually much smaller. Demo numbers are typically reported using the 10ths decimal place (2.4, for example). In the averages, I’m using an extra decimal for easier ranking.
What do you think? Are you surprised by any of the ratings? Which shows should be doing better? Which one do you think will be cancelled next?
