CBS already trotted out one new reality TV series, The World’s Best, this year, now the Tiffany Network is introducing the Million Dollar Mile TV show. Does this new physical competition have the right stuff to score a big win in the Nielsen ratings? Will Million Dollar Mile be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A CBS high-stakes obstacle course reality series Million Dollar Mile is hosted by NFL vet Tim Tebow, with Los Angeles Chargers play-by-play announcer Matt “Money” Smith and ESPN reporter Maria Taylor serving up color commentary. Each time the contestants run the “Million Dollar Mile,” they have a chance to win $1,000,000. Their biggest obstacle is “The Defenders,” an international team of top-ranked athletes which has but one mission — to stop the contestants from finishing the race and winning the prize.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly on the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

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.
