The Hawaii Five-0 TV show’s ratings declined for several years in a row. In its seventh season though, the CBS reboot basically maintained its demo rating average, and its total viewership grew. With the departures of stars Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park, as well as Masi Oka, will the ratings increase further, or will they sink as a result of the losses? Is this TV series nearing its end, anyhow? Alex O’Loughlin has indicated this eighth season may be his last. Will Hawaii Five-0 be cancelled or renewed for season nine? Stay tuned.
A reimagining of the original Hawaii Five-0, this CBS police procedural stars Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, Ian Anthony Dale, Meaghan Rath, Beulah Koale, Jorge Garcia, Chi McBride, Taylor Wily, Dennis Chun, and Kimee Balmilero. The action revolves around Detective Steve McGarrett (O’Loughlin) and his elite state police task force. Together, they fight crime in the 50th state.
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.

For comparisons: The seventh season of Hawaii Five-0 averaged a 1.15 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 9.247 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.
