Lethal Weapon was a very successful movie franchise but reimagining movies as TV shows have had a very mixed track record. Will this FOX series be a hit in the ratings? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
On the Lethal Weapon TV show, two very different cops are forced to work together on the streets of Los Angeles. Grief-stricken after the loss of his young wife and unborn child, ex-Navy SEAL-turned-detective Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford) moves to California to “start over”. He’s paired up with family man Roger Murtaugh (Damon Wayans) who’s just coming back to the job after a near-fatal heart attack. Can these two live long enough to learn to work together? The rest of the cast includes Kevin Rahm, Keesha Sharp, Dante Brown, Chandler Kinney, Jordana Brewster, and Johnathan Fernandez.
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. 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.

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.
