Although the My Last Days TV show does not earn big ratings for The CW, the network has continued to renew the docu-series, so it seems likely they’re more committed to the project for reasons not found in the Nielsen numbers. Last year, the summer program returned to the air as a three-night “event” spread over three weeks. The third season follows the same schedule. Will viewers find it once again? Will My Last Days be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned.
A CW documentary TV series, My Last Days is hosted by Justin Baldoni. The cameras follow courageous people facing one of life’s most difficult challenges — terminal illness. Their compelling stories serve as a reminder that we can make a positive impact upon the world, even in a limited amount of time. My Last Days season three features Jessica Stansell-Aiyegbusi, a former foster child and current mother of five, living with breast cancer; actor, author, and activist Travis Flores, living with cystic fibrosis; Chanel White, who thanks to a bone marrow treatment is living what she calls her “bonus life”; Shannon Sylvain, who created the healthy living initiative “Brown Sugar Rehab,” after a stage IV colon cancer diagnosis; and David Weinlick, a husband and father also living with stage IV colon cancer.
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. 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.
