Season Five Ratings
The fifth season of Major Crimes averaged a 0.38 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.19 million viewers. That’s down by 26% in the demo and down by 11% in viewership when compared to season four. Learn how Major Crimes stacks up against the other TNT TV shows.
Although it’s in the middle of TNT’s pack in terms of the coveted demo numbers, even five seasons in, Major Crimes is one of TNT’s most watched shows. Since the cabler decided to let top performer Rizzoli & Isles wind to a close after seven seasons, the Major Crimes season six renewal makes perfect sense. But mark my words, one fine day, I will sate my hunger.
